Ok I cannot take the idiocy any longer
Do you have warning stickers on anything you buy? YES why?
To avoid any kind of lawsuit, they will do anything to limit their responsibility within one. Sometimes within industry even when there is no chance because stupid rumors get started, as with this you still carry BS warnings.
Ask yourself, if you are a tire manufacturer even though you know it is BS, should some little butt stain eat shit right off what are his odds of a successful lawsuit without this warning?
Well if this forum is a jury then we would have your answer now wouldn't we?
Example when you are filling up at a gas station there is absolutely no way in hell your Cell phone can start a fire, however because enough brainless twits saw a video of a fire they believe it is true. Petrol companies get scared and just in case put up signs.
Its not, it cannot happen no way, no how feel free to do your research on it as well.

regional, Formula USA and AMA Pro racing
- Motorcyclist magazine Associate Editor and later went
on to co-found Sport Rider magazine
- Team Manager of HyperCycle Suzuki AMA Pro

and Japan. I've taken that experience to create the

So based on his career as not only a Racer but a Team manager, as Someone who founded schools for one of the most talented racing legends in the world. Spending years within the journalist community riding god only knows how many motorbikes all on fresh un scuffed tires he suspected just as another racer on this thread, that the Stories regarding the new tire slickness were BS.
Now lets go over the reasons people think he is wrong
1. most popular "My trusted mechanic said so"
Ok so where did he get his information? Oh thats right he heard it and carried it forth as well,
2. Well my tires feel slick
I addressed that earlier as well as the mental aspect
3. Well well sanding my tires has worked so far
Really? So your comparison to riding a tire without scrubbing how now?
4. My rear end slid out on me once 2 HOURS after I started riding, it had to be the film on the side of the tire, there is no other reason
