Front tyre wearing twice as fast as rear
« on: September 28, 2021, 08:35:28 pm »
MT 01 2006 54000 km on the clock. Front tyre wearing twice as fast as rear .  Commute use all Year round . Previous bike Bandit 1250 it was always 2 rear tyre to 1 front.

Is this type of wear normal on the MT 01 ?

Have the MT 01  2 year's now  and will NEVER let it go . Most fun I ever had on two Wheels.

I've had this before, but only once in 15 years, so I'm not sure what actually caused it. Perhaps the specific type and specific sort of riding/surfaces. Never had it with Michelin DC tyres. Glad you like it, they are special.

Do a burnout, that,ll fix it. ;D
More seriously, tyre pressure?
Where is the tyre wearing?
