My Gixer 750y has been laid up since 2002. The tyres fitted are Pirrelli Supercorsas, soft front and intermediate rear which wer ragged to the edges on a track day back then. They still look like they have another track day left in them but I have read somewhere that the compound hardens and they work less well. This combined with modern tyre improvements makes me desire new rubber and I am considering the latest Avons or pirreli's to make my track comeback. I have been riding road bikes all the way through but my Gixer will now be my track day bike as life is to short not to do it! Any advice or comment welcome. Alby
10 year old Supercorsas

only one piece of advice
change them feckin tyres............along with all fluids and oil's.....................other than that have fun" />
perishes over time, so I agree with ally6 - sling them tyres, and also check any rubber hoses for damage too.
Trust me - they won't get you round the first bend in one piece
