Has anyone gone darkside on their 2nd gen Vmax 1700? And if so what tire are you using?
Agreed. I just bought my gen 2 and have my darkside for when I burn up the OEM.... mostly for the track.I passed State inspection here in the US and had the blessing from my insurer. If the tire is DOT approved, it can be used regardless of profile (guess that means you could run MC tires on cars). That's how it works for my state here in the United States.
It was worth the experiment. Satan didn't come up from the ground and frogs didn't land on my head... All in all I'm back to the MC tire. It just warms up correctly. I still have my Darkside for I do intend to use it for drag racing. The lock up is incredible when heated up.
generally speaking, yes, but probably for a limited time only. My days of 'sport biking' and playing around on the curves with pegs scraping are over... I ride differently now. I enjoy going places and seeing/doing things while on a bike. I remember when I was but young getting up at 3:30 in the morning just so I could take the 'long' way into work because I loved riding so much. . However today, I prefer riding for weeks, not hours...are car tyres able to withstand the forces generated by leaning ?, heat deformity differences on the sidewall etc., as on a car they mostly stay level with the ground
