Well i'm looking at Dunlops motorcycle lineup, and there aint nothin but the 208SM... they have other sizes in 150/60 but nothing in a 208 series. perhaps a discontinued size? how old are the tires? do you know?

Last year, I have heard of people getting the "special" little tires for the EX's I'll get in touch with Jeff Wood.

For sure, I am ready to go except for the tires. What do you run?

I'll be the deep purple EX with A/Stars red old WSK Bostrom suit with blue kagayama shoei.

I'm runnin Pirelli supercorsas for now. Once i finish em off I think I might try the Dunlops, but I've got one more set in my basement & at the rate I go through tires I'll probably end up selling the EX before I get a chance to try the 'lops :D

Gray EX, white/gray IXS leathers. #182, yellow plates.

i'm going to try the dunlops as well this year.
Been searching on line for a vendor, but have not found one that carry's the right sizes.
May have to wait until I get to the track on 4/27

I run a 155 slick on my EX, and my racing partner runs a 165 slick.
They don't make 208gp's anymore.

I have a set of the Euro 208GP's that I picked up brand new last season. I'll mount them up right after I rip through the set of SuperCorsa's I have now. I'll let you guys know how they do.

I've got some race take offs that are Dunlop Sportmax D208s 120/70/17 & 150/60/17. They probably have some life left in them. The reason I took them off is because Cornerspeed likes pretty much brand new tires for its track days. I've got (2) rears and (1) front. I'd sell them cheap if anybody wants them.
