Track Day tyres for V4

There seems to be very few 60 series 200 section rear tyres for the V4.
What tyres are you using for track days?
If you are using 55 series, are you using the recalibration function?
All advice appreciated.

Dunlop makes the new K451 slick in a 200/16/17. Besides Pirelli, this is the only other brand (that I'm aware of) that makes a tire in this size. I have a set of Rosso IIs in a 200/55/17 I run in wet conditions on the track. I haven't run them yet. Other people have without performing the recalibration. I'll recalibrate because I plan to use the 200/55/17 Rossi IIs on the street.

I am going to give the New Supercorsa TD tire a try this season. It is a 200/55/17 though.

The Dunlop Q4 200/55 is actually taller with more side wall than the 200/60 V3. Take that for what it’s worth

Even Pirreli and Dunlop 200-60 tires differ in size!! Always use the calibration anytime you put new tires on your bike even if they state they are the same size as OEM... I only run Pirreli 200-60 slicks.

You are correct my friend!!!Different brand tires and even same brand tires always measure different!!! Using the bikes calibration is key.

Keep in mind that IF you choose to use a different tire then your geometry will change. The SP V3 tire is VERY tall! Not even the new Dunlop 200/60 is as tall. The stock tire is very good.
