OK, after 3000 miles through the Washington, Oregon, and northern Ca. backroads eg, Ca 49. I noticed the front tire was wearing on the left side of the tire as if in a constant 45 degree lean, and nearly treadless in that section of the tire and almost no wear on the right side. What would cause this?

The weight of the pipes causes the bike to lean slighlty to the left when balanced.

All roads are supposed to have a crown made into them.This crown keeps the rain water from gathering. Both of your motorcycle tires have more tread being put to use on the left side.Everybody has the same problem...Now you get it? Hillbilly

Your rear axle could be adjusted wrong as well. This could cause wear on one side.

Looking for first new front tire on 07 Jack Pot Dunlop Elite 3. Called the dealer and told me that it should have a radial tire. I have not found this to be true. I called several other dealers and was told the same. I called Dunlop and was informed that that tire did not exist in a radial. 90/90 21 54 H.Any help?
