Why is it your mount these backward?
If you're not on the edge you're taking up to much space. You don't have to be a richard either. BTW, I run a Pirelli and they DO NOT recommend running the tire in reverse.Some here seem to think the know better and are willing to ignore the warnings and risk belt seperation.
Woody, I wouldn't chit you bro. I have spent hours on the phone with them. I would not lead you in the wrong direction. If you are running a rear tire on the front, it is supposed to be run in reverse. If not, this is what occurs. Just looking out for YOU. I's your choice, and your bike brother. See you in a few weeks.:bigthumbsup:Seapups write up says Metzler/Pirelli....That's not what I was told by the Pirelli rep that actually called corporate before answering my question.
I agree. Here is a picture of my Metz. The ONLY way to make a rear tire on the front look like this is to mount it backwards .If you look at a Metzeler front tire, it runs the tread in the same direction as the rear tire reversed. If anyone has a 130/70 Metzeler up front, and could post a pic of it mounted in the intended direction of rotation, you'd see what I'm talking about.
