They remap OEM ecu. Depends on what you want and what’s done on bike.

His company isn’t problem. And I spoke with him later, the problem was in brand new Bridgestone tyres. They supposed to have some coating when new. I ride often with that guy and such lane crossing, he doesn’t have problem with it.....

Any 'coating' on a tire, which I seriously doubt exists, would be gone in the first couple of minutes.

Some brands new tires, do use some kind a coating. Just telling you, what he said (funny feeling on tires, later was much better)....on other side, it’s true he bought tires on Friday....ride was on sunday....! He is more experienced rider as I am, rides for longer.....

I like to wipe my new tyres down with Prepsol or Shellite. A good shop I know uses Shellite (Shellight?) to wipe down new tyres fitted as a courtesy. Riding style is another thing as I'm picky about who I ride with nowdays and there's a few guys I won't ride with. Like dancing you gotta have a compatible style.

Totally agree.
I'm sorry to say this, but he is riding too fast for his riding skill level.
(You can see him riding too close to the center line, and cutting off so many times.
Not because he choose to, but because he CAN NOT keep the bike in his lane.)

Correct.

BS. Or, the old story from 1970s and 80s.
Back then, yes, tire manufacturers used so called "release agent", which is kind of lubricant, that makes releasing the tires from the mold easier. And brand new tires had them still on the tread surface, hence they were slippery in first 50 miles or so.

This is 2018. More than 10 years ago, motorcycle tire manufacturers stopped using release agent.
You can call and ask Bridgestone customer service. (Or, Pirelli, Dunlop, Michellin, ...)

As if we all didn't do this while accumulating skills  Roll Eyes

Study the videos you take, Roger, and learn from them. You generally follow a better line than the Yamaha rider, but you are ON the throttle a lot - to catch up with your friend = stressful. Better skills = even pace on the straight and through corners.

Thank you all for your opinions and suggestions.
 I just told you what friend said about feeling on brand new tyres.
I ride with him a lot and it’s true he never crossed split lane so often and so much....! And I am not defending him or anything.

@stopintime: tnx for the link, will check later.....

Cheers,
