Sweet I was just looking at that tire and even seems to be a little cheaper then the others. I am going to guess the life of the tire is really low?

tire life

It's not bad, many guys on hear that street ride are getting 5 to 7.5 K out of them. I primarily used mine for drag racing and got good life if I didn't do "John Force" style burn outs. The tire really doesn't need a long burn out to hook up but I seem to like pleasing the crowd. It could take all 125 ponies at the wheel and leave on the limiter at the track with out spinning, thatís at 20 psi.

did not catch that the 1st time through.


@20PSI I got my best MPH and didnít spin. Each rider and bike will be different based on total weight and HP. 20PSI would be a good starting point if you are a bigger guy 200LBS or more, less if you are lighter. I adjusted from 20 based on track conditions.

I looked up the tire and they have a Conti Race Attack Comp and Conti Race Attack Custom. Would there be a big enough advantage to the comp over the custom? I would guess the comp is a softer compound tire. I ran the Shinko hook-up on my old bike that was also street/strip and did not get very good wear. I switched to the Shinko Stealth and had no traction issues but better wear. It makes me wonder if the custom may work the same way vs the comp. I am running a basically stock 2013 Nightrod. Thanks
