A handful of burnouts and this thing is tracking about 6.5 inches on the highway.  Should be time to start pulling the front end up. 1550 miles. ( $250.00 mounted = $0.16 a mile or $25.00 a burnout )

I have to replace my rear tire -- but not because of burnouts. I picked up a big nail. The first nail in over 30,000 miles of riding the last two years! :verymad:

Shop the Net for the best tire prices you can find. When you get the lowest price then call the sponsor of this sight, Direct Line Parts, and ask for their competitive pricing policy ( you have to call their toll free # ), you'll get your best lowest price from them.

I've got 4,079 miles on mine and it's nowhere near done yet.

I got a screw in mine..Insurance replaced it for $0.
Best $199 I've ever spent..5 years of tire and wheel replacement.
I think it's $299 regularly but still a deal.
Heck the rear wheel costs $1200 and a blowout at 100 or so just might hurt it too.

Your not alone my tire picked something up going 70 on the interstate, never did find out what it was, just a pea size hole. I almost lost the bike.Since then I found suzuki has the tire on back order not that I would pay what they want.My dealer said I can't mix the tire type's because it would affect the bike's handling.I found tires on the internet but most dealers won't put them on unless you buy them there.I have thought about taking my rear wheel and tire off but I'm not sure I can do it. It's been a week and I'm going nuts not riding. I have ridden thousands of miles and never had this happen, I usually watch for debris in the road.

Didn't damage my tire but bent rim against a curb. When they told me 1200 bucks I almost cried. Tire is not out of line and the seal is good and in no danger of slipping tire so it will be bent for some time to come at that price. Cant see it when I am rolling anyway!!! :D I am hoping that after the new models come out and parts start to catch up with demand that they will come down some...I hope I hope I hope!!!!
