Also, if I'm still allowed to pry for questions in this thread, what is the rule on tire tread? I have never had the chance to run slicks and this bike came with two sets of racing battleaxe bridgestones . Both have the dot on the side about the same depth, but how deep must it be for tech? Is there a limit on how old they can be before they lose grip or heat cycles. I know there is for pros and all but he said he had three track days on them and I'm a beginner. They do have 1/2 inch to a inch of chicken strips so it does not look like he was shredding. Should I junk em both or test em out and have money ready for new ones? PS. I am poor as I just secured the trailer and I am ready to go!
