Un-even rear tire wear
My rear Z6 is done and in need of replacement. No big deal as I got 5600mi of fairly aggressive riding out of it (mostly twisties, some slab & commuting). The front still has another 600mi or so left on it.......anyway-
On the rear tire, the left hand side is definitely much more worn than the right hand side - in fact it is because of the left side wear that I am having to replace the tire - if the whole thing looked like the right side and wore evenly, I would have prob close to another 1k miles left in it....
Anyone else experience this, or have any idea why it may have worn this way?
I know the rear wheel has a small spacer ('03 RS with 5.5" wheel), would this be a cause? Or is it because of the roads being "crowned", and sloping off to either side for drainage purposes?
The bike doesn't seem to pull or have any alignment issues (it did tip off the sidestand one time).....this is the first time I've observed this as my previous set of tires (BT 020) were replaced early with some tread still left as the front was cupping, so I never got a chance to see how the rear would have worn down with those......Thoughts?
