It says on the side... or a least a code for what compound they are, then go to Hoosiers website and check it.. Mine are buried in the garage or I'd be able to give you a better answer.. sorry mate.

Should be something like Rd12 or D12, They have 10's, 12's, and 15's,
Each Number range has different letters, So an R is Soft, Middle is RD, and Hard is D, But then a 10 is softer then a 12, and then 15,
So start with the Numbers, and then go to the letters,
So, a D10 is Softer then a R12
They skip over some of the Combinations, but hopefully that gives you an Idea how to Read the Compounds.

here's my FT setup, lowering link in the rear, and lowering blocks in the front, stock suspension legnth, the fronts have been revalved. Razr TT tires. I need more power to compete but this at least puts me in the race and i can hang with the pack....

switched the setup a little. now running a sway bar and a arms with no front lowering blocks. Last weekends race was a fast track, my poor little motor couldn't hold up to the big motors so i was stuck getting whooped on the straights. This weekend we're set for a short TT course which love, much more rider skill and setup involved rather than raw horsepower.

here's some shots of the short course, me in first of course!
