I noticed that the tires make a squealing noise as I have been leaning lower into turns. Does that mean i'm starting to get close to my lean limit? Thanks.

That's interesting. I ran the stock tires for about 1100 miles.

Rode it pretty hard but don't recall ever hearing a squeal.

I never heard a peep from the Bridgestones on mine... is it possible the tires would squeal if they were way out of alignment? I know it can happen with cars from personal experience.... :eek:

Yes, that's a strange one...I've never heard motorcycle tires squeal on the street or track. Maybe I haven't gone fast enough :sad11:

Could it be the road maybe, was it slightly wet?

It could be the wheel bearings, loose or bad. The squeal maybe happening because they are loose in the race. The squeal is only happening when a side load is applied to them. It is also possible that the axle is loose. Check them just to make sure before before you ride again, this could be serious.

Oh just thought of another possibility, also check that torque on your brake calipers. It certainly sounds to me like something is loose and anly is squeaking during side loads.

I'm guessing bearings or caliper as well
