nice thread buzzz
Buz quit living in the past. I think you may have turned this into a shinko thread. Lets move on. You know Goodyear used to have tires that would not shred apart when then blew and that's what killed Eric Medlen but they fixed it. I would be more concerned if shinko do nothing about it but they obviously did.so why say I bet? betting your life, safety, bike or the riders in the other lane?
I don't know if I woudl say tons of low 7 passes Ryan. Only a few used them and all that I know of other than the GI joe 1000 have had pretty significant chunking on them with a relatively low number of passes. The longest I know of lasting is one that was on Mark Paquette's bike that Tyler Fisher had on it, and then Bud rode at the October MIR race. I believe it started chinking on teh 15th or 16th pass. Bud still rode it after that.The tire has 6 second passes and tons of 7.0s. I'd say they had made changes to it and improved the overall performance of the tires. It may just be my new tire once this p1 is dead.
Wow:beer:Just to clarify FRANKLIN. This post is to help people like you who have never ridden a prostreet bike before. Please read the posts clearly. I just added a video to show the failure of the bead issue.
I started the thread to give my experience in pst and hoped other pst riders would do the same (and some have). THIS IS NOT A SHINKO ADD OR NON SHINKO POST.
I will never tell anyone based on my knowledge of the failures involved with the tire when it came out. UNTIL THEY CAN PROVE OR SHOW IT WAS FIXED I and I will say it again, I WON'T SUGGEST USING IT. It appears there is also now a chunking problem.
MCR2 will split, but never saw one fail.
Michelin have chunked, but never failed.
Please don't read this and think it is the only way to do things. Talk to people who ride pst and work on them at the races to learn all you can. After all you have to swing your leg over that bike.
