    I'm viewing this site from Japan.

    My motorcycle is a Rocket 3R. The right side of the front tire has significant wear. Is everyone's Rocket 3R having the same symptoms?

    Front tire

    My '15 Rocket was converted to a trike years back, time for a new front tire. Calls for a 150 80 R17, would like something a little skinnier up front but concerned about the weight of the bike, your thoughts ?

    Front tire pressure

    I have an "old" R3. I'm running an Avon Cobra 140/75 on the front. I've been running 38psi in it. I just noticed it says max load at 42psi. What are you guys running in yours ?

    Front tire issue?

    Just wondering if this is normal. Between 50 and 60mph, I can feel a slight vibration in the handlebars. Maybe normal but never felt it on any other bike. Maybe something is not right when they installed the front tire. Mark Graham 2020 GT

    16" front tire to diff size??

    Ahoy mates. I have 16" tires front and rear on stock wheels. Any experience with with changing the size from 150-80/16 to 140-85/16? I am having challenges turning the bike at lower speeds and understand that a thinner tire helps make that easier.

    Front tire whine on turns

    I have been hearing - yes, through the helmet, over the wind and engine noise - a high pitched whining or hum when I'm banking in either direction at anything over 40MPH. It's pretty nerve wracking when leaning into a turn at 70+ and hearing this noise wondering if the tire is gonna make it...

    Roadster Front Tire Wear

    So at 5900 miles my front ME880 is visibly wearing in a strange way. I keep pressure at 38, but over the course of a month or so it'll leak down to 33, at which point I know its low because I get a little head shake that starts at 33PSI regularly, so I air it up. The whole tire's life has been...
