I originally purchased the bike in March and notice today in a weekly tire check bad warped rear tire in the center and it is worn through already showing cord in only 3000 miles!?

I will post pics tomorrow.

That sounds about right.....I always have a new set of tires "in stock" for when I need them...cause I go through about 2 sets each season....

Just about to ask the same question myself, but yes... I'm assuming he's running the Dunflops.

About to crack 4,000 on my flops. I'm thinking Diablo Rosso II next.

Suggestions to a replacement rear? Should I do rear and front front right away together? Keep in mind I weigh 240 and I ride allot of mountain roads and passes.

Dunlop showing cords on mine @ 2900. Sticky enough tire when it's hot but it wore the f out so fast it wasn't funny. I ride streets (+ some freeway) daily plus mountains/canyons on the weekends at a slightly aggressive pace. 220lbs geared up fully.

Got 6500 miles out of a Michelin Pilot Road 2. If I rode more conservatively it would have gone another 1000+. That wasn't to the cords either, probably another 500 or so to the cords. ~$145 RockyMtnATVMC Later versions of the Pilot Roads (3,4) are a little more money but better in the wet supposedly.

Now on an Avon av80 ultra sport (dual compound), and it's been great. Got it for $80 which was a frickin steal. Rocky Mtn ATVMC has em for $124.

The guys here will have some solid suggestions for you. The S20 Bridgestone is a good tire too. I've seen some guys haul ass on them on Mt. Palomar out here. ~$135

How many miles have you put on those? I'm thinking those will be my next set so I have some good rubber for track days!
