Does it sound like it is coming from the brakes, Bearings?..???, The screws are for damping adjustment ( I would not recommend adjusting if you don't know what your doing) As for the tire.. Did you check the pressure? There is several things that could cause uneven tread wear( you can cancel out camber, Toe in alignment etc.. This is not a car Grinding sounds like either the brakes or wheel bearing which could cause for the uneven tread wear and/or low tire pressure.

I sold my gixxer to this guy and HIGHLY recommended that he get on this site as I knew there were many of you who could help him with any questions he might have as he is new to riding sportsbikes. I didn't think you'd all be so harsh on him. Whats up with that?
