At 2000 miles mine are not nearly worn out, but kind of hoping they do soon to give me an excuse to get new ones. Really itchin to try out a 55 profile rear. I wouldn't attempt to mount them myself, but would consider taking just the wheels to a shop, depending on pricing.

I know tires can make a big difference in how a bike handles. I was never impressed with the handling of my son's GSX-R600 until he got new tires and it really transformed the bike (in a good way).

They are adequate for commuting, although, tar snakes and wet paint have scared the bejesus out of me. I've had better tires.
i cant say if i like or dislike,,,i lean more and take some turns faster that i ever did before,,,and cruse faster then i ever do before....im sure next season full service new tires will feel great....but untill then the 8000 mile quest is still a go

When it's shiny in the middle, change, get your $ worth.

6000 miles on your stock rear tyre has taken about an inch off the tyre diameter and is throwing the readings out :-)

fuel bars dont move and est miles numbers stay the same......if you give the bike a shake numbers and bar will move....bars show higher then they should,,,small problem for a great bike

Hey LEAVEITSTOCK, retired USN with a 2016 GSX-S 1000A in blue. I'm really digging this bike. I have a Harley riding friend who's a little jealous.
