How many track days can you get out of Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa's? I've got 4 days on them now, some cold tearing. This is my first track only bike & this is the first set of tires solely used on the track. I'm sorry if this subject has been beat to death, any input would be appreciated!

As with most answers it depends, but if you have a cold tear problem do you know what's happening?

I don't know, maybe I didn't bring the tire up to temp before running it hard? I wasn't sure what it was, I asked Dave, he said it was a cold tear. Dave was awesome & I'm sure he gave me more details but I don't remember now. That was last Sept. I'm just not sure if I should continue to run it.
Dave set up my suspension throughout the day & the tires were wearing well.

Thanks for sending the video. It did occur in the afternoon after being on warmers all day & I didn't recheck my air pressure after setting it in the morning. A mistake I wont make again.
I'm pretty sure that's what happened.
The tires don't appear to be worn out & I wouldn't hesitate to run them on the street but I don't really understand heat cycling so I don't know if 4 track days would be enough to effect the tires performance? First two track days (my 1st time) wasn't on warmers. The next 2 were on warmers. How many track days do these typically last? Thanks!

I'm no expert, but Dave has shown that tires can heal back up... I don't think heat cycles are your problem.
