Got a slow leak in my tire, ie: I loose a PSI or so each day of riding. I'm heading on road trip in a month to cow town and I don't feel confidant with a plugged tire while I go mach 10 around a bender with rigs on either side of me. So I've decided to eat it and buy a new rear tire.
Question, I asked if there was a tire that was between stock and racing and he said I can use an 'R' compound tire for not much more money.
Question, what is 'R' compound and is it going to make a difference? Do I need to upgrade my stock front if I move to an 'R' compound in the rear?
I have an F4i 2001 with the Dunlops.
