It's time for new tires for my CB350. I'm making the jump from Avon to Conti.
Honda is sponsoring VMDs at Mid-O, I gotta make a good show of it.

1. Would anyone persuade me not to?
2. Would same sizes be recommended? (90/90 and 110/80)
3. Who is the Conti rep?

I rode a modded xs750 on the track with the Conti ClassicAttacks. 90/90 and 110/80 18" front and rear.
I thought they did fine for the power level and lean angle I was at. Rubber would get soft/sticky enough to easily indent with a thumbnail.
I can't imagine they having issues with a 350 power wise.

UPDATE:

I 'ordered' a set from MotoSport.com. Very nice price too. They have the 110/80 rear, but the 100/90 front is on back order. My order is still open, but I want both together so I don't end up with just one Conti.

I also contacted THR who also said they were backordered. I check in every so often.

I'm racing in June so I have until mid-May I figure.

Racing as in road racing or top speed racing?

You might want to ask them what the build date on the tires you are going to receive are...
