    I just found this on Dunlop's Instagram. They are releasing the all new Q4 tires. I literally know nothing about them. I love the Q3+, can't wait to try these!

    It sure would give a lot of confidence in leaning the bike over, no way possible to lean it too far for the tire!

    They also make a 180/60-17. I want to try that and see if it works steering by having a steeper profile/larger contact patch.

    Web site says they don't fit our bikes. WTH
    NOPE! THESE WON'T FIT YOUR 2014-2015 HONDA VFR 800 F / FD
    NOPE! THESE WON'T FIT YOUR 1998-2009 HONDA VFR 800 FI / ABS
    Did I miss something?
    Sure they just don't recommend them.

    Could be something wrong with their website or they don’t have the sizes our bikes use shipping yet.

    120/70/17 front
    180/55/17 rear

    They have 180/55 and 180/60. Both sizes will fit our rear wheel, 5.5". Their website says the 180 fits 5.00" to 6.00".

    Yeah I just hit the guickly fit button on the site. Figured they had a tire that fit.
    Looking forward to hearing from you track guys on how they perform.
    "62 degree" I'd feel like my helmet was dragging lol

    So sounds like a pure sport tire, maximum traction, minimum miles. Most track guys will go for that, as most use their bikes on the track, with nary a day on public roads. It's good to know though, that one could use the Q4 on public roads without worrying about getting a ticket.
