Can't really tell... Does it have a bluish tent?? The way that pic looks, it looks like a nicely break-in on a tire.

Nah, no bluish tint. My camera just makes it appear that way..

What does overheating look like?

Looks like good riding to me LOL. Chicken stripes that looks like hamburger is a good thing.

looks like you need a bit of suspension work in the rear. cold tearing a bit.

Firehawk: agreed! The rear was dancing a bit in the back straight over 200kph.

My bike was pretty much dialed for 'aggressive' backroad riding; then I hit the track this weekend and realized just how supple it was. Many adjustments later it felt much better but I couldn't get away from the rear-end wiggle..

1. Looks like you are picking up rubber off the track... you are not working the tire hard enough to keep it clean.
2. Check both cold and hot tire pressure, if you are going over 7psi difference you may be overheating, but it sure doesn't look like it.

Even if you are fast you still pick up rubber from the tarmac in the pits, don´t really get what you mean?

It sure isn´t overheated though.

that's what i was thinking... 29psi unless it's freezing is good for powers, though "hot" psi is typically what you want to measure

the bits where the tyre looks like it's been attacked with a cheese grater, rather than feathered...

oh, and it looks like you're getting on the gas early enough on the right handers, but not the left handers

prejudices are what fools use for reason

Honestly, I'm not seeing cold tearing. It's not overheated though.
