Wavy chicken strip?

Hi guys,

I replaced my tires couple weeks, put down only couple hundred miles on them and it seems that there is a very strange wave pattern for the chicken strip. This wave only happens to the line closest to the middle and not the one near the edge of the tire.

What can be causing those??

Here are some pics:








Thanks

Thats just where the two different compounds meet. My Pirellis look the same. Dont worry about it man, totally normal

Ummm, why would the compound be joined in such a wavy pattern?

Thanks

Lean that farker over, and be more agressive on the throttle and your waves will turn to this instead...
Chicken strips be gone

It's on purpose. When you lean the bike over you want a transition from one compound to the other so you don't get sudden differences in traction, like you might if the compounds met in a straight line.

your first problem is you put a pirelli tyre on your bike fukin rubbish tyre ( for a kawi)
my pirelli's didn't have a wavey transition in compounds nether does my bridgestones,
I'd check wheel balance or clickers on the rear shock also.
it could be nothing as said above but .
i'd still check it out. IE get the tyre fitterto rebalance the wheel to confirm THAT isn't the issue.

nekolak.

you got suspension issue going by that pic dude.
unless that shit on the edge of your tyre is debri from riding into the pits your settings are wrong.
while theres no tearing apparent theres too much debri Still on the shoulder of the tyre.
should only be small balls 3-4mm on the very edge..
