the "all the gear. no idea" talk quickly stopped and we got back to riding/racing and having fun like this is meant to be.


Some people wear custom Kangaroo D-Air suits to the cafe, others wear jeans to a track day........
End of day do what ever makes you warm and fuzzy.
So if you're a first-time Ducati owner with a V4 base model and occasional track day rider it seems considered opinion would be warmers unnecessary all advice respected cheers ride safe

on OEM tires, would bother. drop your pressures, direct after each session check them hot (and wear on tires) and go from there.
Other than that, just get those laps in, learn your lines and braking points to what you feel comfortable with and enjoy.

Understood the goal being to push bike/rider limits guaranteed to run out of talent before bike Road Rash hurts cheers

Exactly! take it over to the cycling forums. Only joking

Tyre warmers were designed for racing , to go fast from the very first lap where every hundredth of a second counts,a slight edge if you like, you don't need them for a track day,and like i said ,there are better things to spend your hard earned money on for track days ,like suspension components or tuition,take your time warm them up when your on the fat bit of the tyre for a couple of laps and off you go,
happy days !! enjoy.

I Ride: '16 Pani R, 1098R Bayliss, KTM1090R.
Stopping the rear tyre tearing up and practically doubling tyre life, therefore saving
more in 2 or 3 trackdays than the warmers will cost you seems a little daft to ignore.
Regardless of anything else, they make fiscal sense.


I would rather be called a wanker etc and have the confidence in warm tyres
that last longer. A little name calling is far more tolerable than a trashed bike
and hospital food.
