E3 Tire wear
Same issues for me. I just had my bike gone over by the dealer, it's at 10000 KM (6600 MI) of which I've done about 4000 KM since I bought it a month ago, mostly highway riding. I'd bumped up pressure to about 38F/40R when I got it,but they were a bit lower 32/37 when I'd first checked.
Dealer's service guy noted a new set of tires are needed when I'd picked the bike up today. Otherwise all was well. My front does seem a bit "pointed" in the center, not sure if this is what is meant by "crowned" or not.
How long is to be expected IF tire pressures are kept up properly from new, and what other tires are recommended as better alternatives
I'm not yet that agressive, so wouldn't have expected the center of the tire to be "outlasting' the sides due to heavy cornering etc.
