'07 Meanstreak rear tire help
Need some help and some advice.
The rear tire on my '07 Meany seems to be wearing VERY badly only on the left side. The center isn't too bad, and the right side looks almost untouched. But the left side is bad enough the shop won't let it pass inspection.
The mechanic claims it is because it is a 180 rear, and that the wheel is too narrow for it.
Obviously I will need a new tire, but is there anything that would account for the abnormal wear?
Also, what would people recommend for the rear tire on a Meany? I notice this bike uses sportbike tires, rather than the bias tires my old Shadow had.
Any help would be appreciated.
