I don't see any cords coming through. You still got a trackdays left. J/K

If you have doubts, change it out. Normally all tires comes with some kind of replacement indicator, if you don't see it then change it.

It would be better to spend the couple bucks and go ahead and replace the tire. Better that than take it out and have her slip on you. That could be way more costly than replacing a rear

it's worn down mostly on the right side because the only track you've ridden on mainly was MSR-H.

when you start venturing off more to the other tracks, you'll notice different wear patterns and tread life.

btw, i would change that tire, but that's just me.

clockwise tracks are almost always going to wear the right more than the left. The opposite is true of counter clockwise tracks. Ergo, MSRH wears the right while TWS (Texas World Speedway) wears the left.

Clockwise tracks? Counterclockwise tracks? Just because a track runs CW or CCW is no indication of the number of left or right handed corners on it. There are plenty of CW tracks that have more right hand corners than left, and vice versa


Yeah, Greg, you're stuff is a triangle now. Time to mount some fresh rubber.

I'd change it. As stated, you run MSRH a lot, so the right side has been getting beat up pretty good. I'd change it or try and run GSS as soon as possible. How many trackdays do you have on the tire now? BTW uneven wear is very typical. Most guys run a particular track more, and thus, experience wear specific to the track. For example, TWS (Texas World Speedway) wearing out the left side, MSRH wearing out the right side.

I've never heard of this track called noob that runs clockwise, but wears out the left. Is it in the US?

Greg. Your tires look like mine. I tend to ride more aggresive when turning left because my brake pedal on the right. I tend to try to back it in harder when i go left just because of that feel of control with the rr brake. When you go right you tend to keep light on the pedal as to tend to put the foot down. You know what i mean?? I personally dont think your tire looks that bad. You should see mine. I just dont know how to get pics to come up on here. Cant ever get them to work. Wes
