Plop racing tyres

Post by c90bobber » Sun Dec 29, 2019 9:52 pm

Hi,

I went to Mallory for the plop this year as a spectator and loved it .

I am now looking to race prep my c90 for next year and wanted to know what tyres you guys would recommend and also what size?

I am sure this has been asked before so sorry if you are sick of the question

I forget the model, but I've a near new front wet from a 125 gp / moto3 bike that I bought for plop racing but haven't used. £25 if you want it.

Perfect up front in the dry too.

Gareth, if you still have the tyre and c90Bobber does not want it, I may be interested.

Hi,

Sorry for late response, managed to lock myself out of the account.

A bit undecided on tyres as yet but thanks for the offer

Tyres for plop racing is a bit of a minefield,we started on Metzeler me22 and thought they were good until we raced the Bridgestone Battlax bt 39 and found these to be unreal ,loads better, but they have stopped making them ,there is quite a few options out there and a good tyre with correct pressure in will be one of the best upgrades you can do to a bike ,choose wisely ;)
