I actually ran/run the 003RS on my EX500(Ninja 500) track bike. I say used because I didn't race or do any trackdays this year due to the WR consuming my track budget. For the events and trackdays I did on the 003RS I was very impressed. No experience with rain though. They stick well until you start really pushing them to borderline expert club racing level. They slide predictably from what other have told me, I've never pushed them to that point.

YMMV.

Ya, I think most people (like me) in this thread are referring to their tires as the BT-003, but we actually have the racing/street version (BT-003RS). Is the racing BT003 even street legal?
