When I lever on a new set of knobs you can believe I take it easy on pavement until the sharp edges scrub in. Last year I put on a new XCMH for a mountain dual sport ride. The first time I hammered the gas out of a fast sweeper my 640 spun the rear tire.

So I backed off a few percent. After catching up to my buddies I suggested some forest road flat tracking before any more playing Rossi in the twisties. After roosting up some dirt and gravel road the rear tire was fine. Just the way it is when you run knobs.
