    Dunlops are what everyone seems to be looking for. Thats what I would try if I ever try any motard racing.

    Only because there are very few options at this time in a true race tire compound also the factor of limited quantities...............

    if you're just looking for a cheap street/stunt tire, try the IRC MB38. They only make it in 10", they are DOT approved and cost about $25 for the pair. I believe they are what Vino scooters and the like come equipped with. Like I said, not for serious racing, but excellent wear for street/stunt.

    They work nice for the price, need at least a 1.6" rim though. Here on a stock 1.4" 50 rim.

    I'm gonna say this again not trying to be "the know eveything spew master" but it would seem that there are only 3 "ture race" compound tires and the rest are just relabled as "minimotard tires".



    All the manufactures now sell "minimotard tires" they are old model tires with a new sales pitch to spin up sales



    You can run what every they are selling that fits as this sport is so "new" to Americans. We run minitards cause dirt ballers are easy to come by with low cost compared to the YSR, NSR bikes and the Metrakits plus we like to hot-rod anything we can.



    I have to believe the 2007 season is gonna shake things up with the people really wanting to go faster they are going to find that tires are the number 1 thing next to suspension that will lower their lap times.



    to achive faster speeds you need these 4 things:

    Sticky Tires

    Adjustable Suspension

    HP/Torque

    Rider abillity



    Almost in that order............

    I'd nearly reverse the order Teddy. At least with what I've seen in our series.



    Cheers.
