Lots of differing mileages from the rears, i got 12,000 kms from mine and run 39 psi front and 41 psi rear and would consider myself a mildly agressive rider. I weigh 85 kgs or approx 170 lbs...
I,m wondering if my choice of rear shocks has helped me...i,m running progressive 440 from my speedy with heavier springs,,,,I found the stock rear shocks tended to be too stiff and bouncy even on the softest setting and this could accellerate tyre wear due to the induced slippage..just a theory....Plus i rarely carry a pillion...cheers, Tadpole
