125gp / moto3 fronts. Dunlop kr189 is one I picked up (a scrub, because wow they're pricey.)

There were no 'Yams' running in the Plop!! :o :shock:
Its a Honda-only event.

A few teams ran with race wets on, and at least two of them burned out the rears and had to change mid way thru.

Bridgestone Battlaxe BT39's are what we use.

Superb in all conditions, even in the cold, damp, wet conditions when we race in Ireland in February!

Work for me!! :D
