True that :agree: I would get rid of the stockers as soon as possible!!!!!!Just under 5k, I don't ride all that hard and never smoked the tire off. The center went real quickly. I mean it looked like I had good tread and then about 60 miles later it was shot. The front was also cupped very badly, so off they went. The e-3's I have now are way better than stock and If I knew then what i know now, they would have been changed a long time ago.
Thought mine was fine heading out on trip to flagstaff...halfway through trip...stopped to get gas..looked at tire..and thread was showing at about 7000 miles...dont screw around with it..if it even looks close change it. Have e3 now..and quite happy with it. Getting new front tire in a couple of weeks..Even though it looks somewhat ok. Dont ever want to have that kind of crap happen again.I have about 5600miles and still have some left but I baby the bike. How many more do I have to go till these tires have to be taken out to pasture?
