crazy tire wear on my other bike

Post by HDKAWKTM » Fri Oct 27, 2017 9:38 pm

This is a Continental EVO 2 from the front of my Kawasaki Concours 14 with 6k miles on it. I have seen tires cup but nothing like this. Anyone seen anything like this before? I always ran correct tire pressures. The rear wore in middle due to I commute straight line most of the time but it just basically was worn in middle but this front? :?: :shock:

I've only seen wear like that on a car with bad shocks...

I'm quite sure some guys would point at wrong air pressure in the tire.

Normally, tires always get worse at the left side, due to the fact that the road isn't 'flat', but does 'tilt' from left to right (that is from the middle of the road (center line) to the right side). That is during right side traffic, of course :-)
