Thinking about picking up a new pair of Bridgstone Battlax BT-003 RS. Anyone have any experience on those? If so, what PSI where you running.

There is also the BT-003 Pro, but I don't think I'm fast enough for those yet.

I've used them lots in the past. I wore out a couple sets on a supermoto, and a few more sets on my old CBR 600RR. They warm quickly, stick real well, and the profile is better than the original Dunlops (quicker turn-in). They won't be a high mileage tire, that's for certain. The prices have always been good though.

Try 'em out. When they wear out, try something else.

Ran some 003' s last Sunday at Palomar.

Got a bit of a backend slide in a few corners, but other riders were also saying the road was a bit more

slippery that day. High humidity , but dry appearing road.

Had it leaned over enough that I may have been losing a bit of contact ?

Going to run some Metzler Racetecs this Sunday.

Same size tires but steeper sides so hopefully more contact at extreme lean.

I'll post some comparison pics in a day or 2.
