BRIDGESTONE TIRE SPECS NOW AVAILABLE
Bridgestone slicks and treaded tires have been measured and are now available for MotoSPEC.
DUNLOP FLAT TRACK TIRES
Dunlop has provided the inflated profiles for their flat-track tires - the new tubeless DT4's and also the pre-2020 tubed DT3's.
For PRO licenses, the tire specifications now include radial stiffness.
Using the profile and radial stiffness, MotoSPEC v5.7 can calculate the 'loaded radius' of the tire with lean angle, improving the accuracy of the geometry calculations.
SPECIFYING TIRE PROFILES
MotoSPEC PRO licenses can specify tire profiles in order to consider the effects of lean angle on the geometry of the motorcycle.
An explanation of the effects of lean angle and tire profiles can be found in the post 'EFFECTS OF TIRE PROFILE WITH LEAN ANGLE'.
EFFECTS OF TIRE PROFILE WITH LEAN ANGLE
MotoSPEC v5.5 introduced analysis of lean angle and tire profiles in the PRO version of MotoSPEC.
Please see the post 'SPECIFYING TIRE PROFILES' for an explanation of tire profiles.
