Question

Any one have any insight as to why the GSXR1K comes with Bridgestones as stock feet instead of Dunlops. Just wondering if there was some info that I may have missed.

'99 GSX-R 750

Probably because Bridgestone bid 3 cents lower!
It's not unusual to see a mfg. use more than one supplier either, even on the same model in the same country.

Suck mean people!

Very true. RC-51s were shod using either Dunlop, Mezelers, or Michelins(?)(not sure on the third one).

Shoddy, good word to use while describing the RC.
