Great tire for the track. I use them on my 1000rr Honda. I get two track days on them,and they are toast,but I then but them on my 600rr and use them for riding to work. 250 miles a week,and they last months.

I put these on my track bike after switching from Pilot Power 2ct tires. I would say they perform better off of feel, as I did not get lap times to compare the two at the same track.
I was able to run 1:53-54s at CMP without spinning the rear up much or having it break loose on me. It was a colder day or I would say that they could confidently get closer to the 1:51 mark.
Durability is what you would expect, having them mounted on a liter bike. Feedback was good. I could feel what the tire was doing pretty much the whole time. They also were up to temp very quickly.
so this was my first set of good tires.before i had shinkos and continental. while both of those are decent tires for a good price. but within the first 5 minutes of having these tires on i was in love! once you try these youll understand. before it was like fighting the bike to make it lean in and now with the bt003 street racing tire turn in is effortless. take time to get use to these tires,they are like nothing you have ever tried before!
i have ridden many different tires and i keep coming back to the bt-003. they provide excellent grip and good feedback when you push the tire to or near it's limits. good stability under breaking and really deserves high marks for durability given the punishment it endures through repeated track sessions. this is due, in part, to the use of multiple tread compounds which enhance grip and durability. an excellent tire at an excellent value.
It's a good tire...on the Suzuki Bandit 12, you can run out of traction at full lean, ham fisting the trottle on a heavy bike at NJMSP's Thunderbolt course. Don't bother riding below 50 degree's, the cold tire may as well be greased until you get some heat into it, wet weather...it spins up and side steps like any other. On dry roads, they leave sweet black carving archs through the turns, if the back end is loose. I really should be ordering a set of sport touring tires and ride this bike like the gray hair I've become, however I'm ordering a second set now.
P.S. scrap them when you hit the wear bars on the sides, I don't think the rubber is as tacky closer to the carcass
