I guess you mean front to wear more than the rear :dontknow:
If so, yea, 3k out of a front tire. . .somethings not right, whether the tire or possibly suspension.

dazam I run on the street 32 PSI front cold 30 rear!
all tire PSI is for is to control tire temp! that’s it nothing more nothing less! people worry too much about what the # on the side of the tire reads i.e. 45psi …yeah if it's 115 degrees outside! You want your tires to run at optimum temp! and if it takes 45psi, well ok them! but it may only take 25PSI this all depends on how you ride and what your ourside temp is!


PS and too cold of a tire will cause your sliding issues you say your having!

What ever you like! I'm a Dunlop guy for race tires I like real rubber on the track! On my street bike I like the 2CT's but I only do 70% of so on the street and the SYN rubber tires don't need to get heated up to the temp the real rubber has to get to stick well!

you need to re-spring.. then adjust! if you just adjust with stock springs you wasting your time! your too hevey for stock shit to even be close! spend the $200 and you wont be un-happy!

RE-spring! I’m telling you that’s and PSI are 95% of your problem! Suspension is the #1 thing anyone can do! but you see guys who go spend $1000 on a pipe and PCIII ...when they should have re-did there suspension! Suspension and tires and skill keep you up right!

sounds good any recommendations

Call Dan @ "Traxxion Dynamics" tell them your weight and how you ride they will tell you what you need! :eek:ccasion1

then once that is done you can set your SAG and start adjusting you comp and rebound! you could set your sag with out it but you will bind your strings~!
