agreed, slicks for all classes-- just like you can run rains for all classes. there was a guy on a motard who was in the LWSS race last weekend at LRRS, and he had slicks on his bike for the SS class. i would never say anything about that particular infraction but technically that's illegal.

When I started with CCS in 99, supersport classes could NOT use rains. We just used street tires instead of DOT race. ;D


Motard guy would had been DQ'ed if he finished top 3 in post race tech.

How much of a difference is there between a given DOT and it's equivalent slick? Say, from an SC1 DOT to an SC1 slick. From everything I've read, pretty much none - correct? Maybe the slick wears a little better, but odds are that if you had someone else pull the warmers off for you and you didn't look, you couldn't tell.

If you are running Bridgestone their slick is brilliant, and their DOT (003) is....not as brilliant.
I have no issues with the 003R in the rear. They dont make the R for 160, only the RS which is a street tire.

i ran BT003 RS front and rear for the first time at Summit last month, had rode Mich Power Race only before. I had little problem with them, a little rear end sliding out a few times, but I just had to be mindful of it and it could also be from my crap GSXR rear shock :(

Summit is slippery to begin with and you are also using a street tire. I was sliding both tires through 6 and 10 at times.

yep same turns, the worst slide i had was after passing the Kawi650 in 6 and the photog actually had a pretty good pic of it, back end was a few inches left more than I liked :)
I think we both had to make that tight pass in the T6-8 range to pass Marti
