Replaced the present Car Tire at 24,050 miles and guess could have gone another 1000 or 2000 based on fact that edge still had estimated 1/10 rubber. However, it was for most part slick (left edge). Right edge not slick yet. Everythin below wear indicators for some time.
Much easier replacement this time than the troubles I had in previous Post BECAUSE Bob did it with his removal / install machine and spin balance machine.
Don't know what pressure he used to seatt it -- I am not sure I wanted to know.
$20 wheel off, use to be $15 wheel off. Either raised price or based it on fact he had to reset machine and extra weigh balancing.
Show old (24,050 Miles) and new Car Tire (same brand).
Show cut I made along edge to see how much rubber was left (I did not reach cord - hard to cut). Micrometer said 0.085 inch (estimate about 1/10 inch left). Except for being slick on left edge and below wear indicators everyplace, could run another 2000 I think. Might be concern about the slick if road was wet. I did not notice any problems last 1000 or more miles.
Pretty easy Wheel Off as you know - No need to remove plastic, take muffler to exhaust pipe clamp loose, three muffler mounting bolts, remove caliper, remove swing arm (triangle with axle nut holding one end and two bolts on front section, then pull wheel off (splines in Hub and Axle).
Then load wheel and new tire on NINJA TRUCK and go to Bob's. His part was about 30 MIN to replace tire. Very Professional Capable Mechanic with 28 years of owning a shop before he retired here and about 8 or more MCs of his he is an enthusiast and loves working on bikes.
I have wheel back on and swing arm on (finger tight). I have to get new rear pads as mine are Paper Thin. Then install Caliper and Torgue Swing Arm and Axle. Then install muffler and good to go for another 24K or 25K miles.
$46.15 for tire and $20 for install.
