I thought I was the only one. I babied the first 1,000 miles on my bike right? At 1,400 miles or so the steel radial was showing. I complained to the dealer, but of course no avail..I put on a SPort Attack, and I get about 2,000 miles or so. I then put on a 190/50 Dunlop Qualifier and I have 3,000 miles on it, and there is alot more left. OEM Dunlop's suck. I would have taken it off when I first bought bike if I were to know. Anyway, this is common.. Peace
1200 miles when I swapped out the oem for non oem Qualifiers. Great shape, but went for a change ( ie complete suspension and tires). 4000 miles and have signs of the center showing a flat spot down the center. Been a good tire for the street so far.
