    Just a little advise about tire balancing.......

    It has come to our attention, that some "motorcycle shops", have reverted back to the procedure, known as "static" wheel balancing.
    A system that does not take into account "notched" bearings, or even worn bearing
    There defense for using this system is :
    That's how mitchelin, Dunlop, and others do it at the "race track", implying that if it is good enough for "Joe racer", it should be good enough for you.
    Well, no.
    As with other things "racing" ie: clutches, brakes, tires, spark plugs, ignition timing, air filters, oil, undersized drive chains, and sprockets, carbon fiber wheels, and exhaust, and many, many other things, that are OK at the track, BUT have NO PLACE in the real world, of street riding, commuting, and touring

    I get in the 3k-8k range on an F3

    Mostly depends on how I'm riding. 3K is certainly not unreasonable for someone that spends their whacking the throttle or doing a lot of track days.
    One of the negative parts of motorcycle reality is that what you save on gas (vs a car) is almost eaten up by what you spend on tires.
    It's hard to get a set of sportbike tires for less than $250, with a $300-$350 figure being more likely.
    Cycle Gear used to (and may still) give you 10% off tires and "chemicals" if you had one of their Visa cards and used it for purchases.
    Here's one thing. Sportbike tires are fairly soft - that why they stick as well as they do

    Like Author says, I had mine bubble up in three

    Places. I was riding at night and running 70 or so on the interstate for 100 miles and really didn't notice anything.
    The next day I took it to go get parts and felt it, the knots were pretty nasty looking and the tire was about 1/3rd used up. I go through about 2 1/2 sets of tires a year, so they don't have time to get "stale" unless they arrive that way.
    I liked um pretty well up to that point, they'd lay over nice on the road and seemed to inspire confidence. They were more dirt oriented then the Dunlops I'd been running and made more noise. I'll probably stick with my Lops, all in all they've served me well and I've grown confident they'll hold togeather till the cords show

    • Avatar JOHN H I bought new tires for my 1977 Triumph motorcycle which are?
      Aug 24, 2008 by JOHN H | Posted in Motorcycles

      Only 5 years ago. Dunlop K70s. The bike is kept in a garage but very seldom ridden. The tire walls are cracked and the tires need to be replaced. Only about 300 miles on them. Bike is in a garage and covered year round. Why? Should I ask Dunlop for replacements as this seems wrong?

      • John,, bleive it or not 5~6 Years is the average max lifespan recommended by most tire mfgrs. 20+ yrs ago ,,Age was "not an issue" because nobody made it an issue. "Dry Rot" was apparent ,,at least Eventuallyand then it was time for tires. On Bikes specificallyonly Rarely do Bike Tires Over-Age before wearing out. In the last several yearsthe Age issue has moved to the forefront of tire safety. Obviously it behooves the Tire Mfgrs to sell tire more frequently. But with 5 ~6 Year expiration interval,,it s just as obvious it s NOT a marketting ploy to …

      • There is so many different features to modern tyres that they need all the details. To be honest, your lucky your asking just about road tyres. Racing tyres have another 5 markings & to be honest thats not enough! You wrote alot in your question for no reason to be honest :
