DOT's verses slicks on an sv superbike, or for any bike for that matter. Thanks for any feedback!!

No takers? Guess Ill try slicks this year and see what happens.

I've never run an SV or slicks, but I know there's a class or two you cannot run slicks in.

Opie, I think you've got a million HP in your SV, so you can't run a class that requires DOT's.  

DOT's have execelent development in the 3.5 front/5.5 rear combos.  So, you have lots of options.  

Slicks...there's some good stuff out there that might offer better longevity, but not necessarily as good of traction...well, not the ultimate traction.

I use Michelin's myself.  I think Quentin Mise is the Michelin guy in the MA area.  I think you might be able to get a hold of him through Sportbike Track Time.

That would be a start for you.
