How long for tyres to heat up?

Riding in the morning I was wondering how long of ‘normal’ riding does it take for tyres to get warm and grippy?

Some lovely bends close to where I live but I’ve always taken it easy in the belief that my tyres aren’t properly grippy. On the way home though - it’s a different matter.

if in dought … leave it longer … :slight_smile:

there’s no real way of telling on the road , surface temp , tyre pressure and type of type all make a huge differance … ie: racetecs youc an wheelie in the wet , yet rennsports spin up even if the road is cold …on mine they do anyway

and of course the wheelies are always performed on private roads under controlled conditions :cool:

Varies hugely depending on what tires you have and how much accelerating and braking you are doing.

Half an hour :Whistling:

:smiley: :smiley:

On my 600 I can feel them warm up.

You get off at the lights and fell them???:):P;)

They’re not trees Busa :rolleyes: :wink:

What I meant is on the 600 I can feel them warm up as I ride it, no need to get off and check :w00t::smiley:

Damn only takes me 20 minutes to work…best keep it down to 100mph then as they are cold :D:D:D:D

The brand of tyre makes a difference to the time it takes to warm up too. I have Michelin Pilot Power 2CTs and I find they heat up very quickly, after only a couple of miles at a reasonable speed. And yes I have stopped to check the temperature.

6 laps of a “medium sized” roundabout also do a good job after riding for a mile!
