The front is A MT60 Corsa and the Rear is a MT90 Scorpion. The 90 has a harder compound which aids in sliding it around. The front is a 120 and the rear is a 150. Yes, they have to have tubes because of the spoked wheels.

The 426 is great. Its a little buzzy with stock gearing but will wheelie and slide on command. with a 40 in the back it great for faster roads. The only problem is its loud as hell. I have a WR exhaust with the plug but it robs to much power.

I'm thinking of getting similiar tires as yours for the street and supermoto track and keep the pilot race for the big track.

Have you gone to Myle Standish state park. I use to race around there on my Duc. nice tight twisties. I haven't taken the SM there yet

I live about a mile from one of the entrances to MSSF. I go in there almost every time I jump on the bike. It is by far the best riding for twisties that I know if. It's a great place to practice!

Where do you ride the SM on a track? I really want to try out a track this spring.

I have ridden a 426 in the dirt, but never on SM. That snappy power must be unreal! What kind of top speed will it get? Isn't the 426F the close ratio tranny? I hit the rev limiter on my Husky at about 102 in 6th with the gearing I have on there. I think 102 is fast enough on an SM and I still have more than enough torque to stand it up whenever I please.

I have gone to NHIS on the 426 I threw a 40 in the back instead of the 49 tooth sprocket. I also have gone to NY out by RT87 and 84 with http://www.supermotard-usa.com/. It's a go-cart track with a dirt section. Lots of fun.

Since I don't have a speedo or a tach. I can only esitmate my speed based off what my friend says while we are riding. I just cuise around 70-75 with the 40 around 60 with the 49 sprocket. I think with stock gearing I top out at 85. Most of the place I ride are real tight 3 thru 5 gear corners. I never go on the hiway and try to stay away from any major roads, so I rarely put the 40 on
