I found it to be one of the easiest engines to use ever with a really predictable and easy to use power delivery that never broke traction
The only specific thing I ever looked for with the tyres for it was something with a sharp profile as it really helped the lazy handling

You must be riding it like Michael Dunlop everywhere so if you've worn out your front and rear S21 allready.

M7rr S21 or S22

And if it is breaking traction...then you need to look at your suspension setup,tyre pressures and riding style.

Take the spin up and get them fitted there.
They have free coffee and a few nice bikes to look at.
Nsr 250 and an rc45.
Sound lads but last chance before the hard boarder!

Is there a difference between an S21 and an S21R?
S21 should be a standard tyre for Cotters...

Crossans ship on a next day service...

Having used just about everything over the years
In my opinion the newest hypersports tyres aren't as
grippy anymore ie the s20 and s21 have been designed for mileage if you want grip the r10 is want you want if you can live with 7-800 miles to a back tyre.
I've been using 2ct's for the last 2 years.
