It's hard to tell from the pics, but it looks like it's starting to cup. If so, replace it. If it's just cooked on the sides and no cupping, it's probably okay for a little while longer (and if you cooked it like that on the street, get thee to a track posthaste!).

how goes it "feel" while riding ?
when it starts to lean its ok, but if I go lower it reaches a point where it seems it wants to push me down like I was countersteering.

I think I'll check pressure as suggested. I haven't checked it in 4 months :eyecrazy:

Yeah I would do that, check the pressure. My first bike I never checked it then took it to the shop for some powers. When they were changing I asked them to check just to see and the stock tire had 19lbs hahahaha what a tard I was

4 months???? I Check mine at least every 2 weeks, I try for 7 to 10days.

1 lb can make a big diff.

I'm not that good with the cage but I should be. One thing lost with full service gas for cars, the tire check.

I worry about my parents sometimes cause I know they don't think to check them, I do it.
In Europe that is part of learning to drive- go figure.

Me too. I had my busa start squirmin' on me before I knew to check the pressure often. Not fun... Now I check before each ride. :wink:
