You are definitely broken in then. Not an issue with that. You should be getting the max fuel mileage the bike is capable of.

BT021 are really bad for wear especially on the front tire. They have a replacement tire for that, the BT023 that just came out.

My suggestion: Metzeler Z6 or Michelin Pilot Road 2

2006 FZ6 Red 96rwhp

Granted your bike is a heavy, high HP machine that is going to eat through tires faster than most bikes but that sure does seem like an awfully short tread life.

I don't blame you for being pissed.

my front bt021 was a piece of shit i only got 3000 miles out of it. i got 5100 out of the rear bto21 witch is about right. i just put the new bt023 on the rear because the pilot road 2ct's i wanted are on nation wide back order for my size, ill let you know what i think of it soon, i can already tell you its a harder compound in the center. and as for the pilot road 2ct i have on the front so far i fricken love it.

p.s. mine and glens trouble with the bto21 where very different my front tire shredded bridgestone said it was under inflated and to run it at 42 pounds compared to the 32 pounds Kawasaki owner manual calls for.

yah i'm noy easy on the bike but come yhe f%^k on if you can't get 3500 to 4000 out of a front tire then don't even make the tire. if a 75 horsepower ninja 650 is getting 3gs out of it then why in the hell would you put it on a 140 horsepower bike. i may be a little off on the horsepower but you get the idea. well i'm going to go with pilot roads 2 if i can get them in my size

Took the day off and rode out to Arcadia Valley. Went 72 out (they have COMPLETELY ruined that road). Ate at Bailey Jo's BBQ....neat little place that looks very biker friendly. Great BBQ. Took Hwy E back to Fredericktown then down 72. The best part of the trip is when a mature bald eagle flew about 30 ft above me right at the Madison/Iron county line. He was huge and quite an impressive sight. Flew off before I could get off the bike and get a picture.

Right outside of Millersville, there was a guy dressed in a white robe, white hat and a big wooden cross on his neck walking down the side of the highway. Waved. Freak. This is the same guy who was down in Chaffee on the side of the road on Saturday when we were on the poker run. Guess he is just "spreadin' the word".

Speaking of Poker Runs, let me buy the 50/50 raffle tickets from now on! I won two t-shirts (like I needed those), three hats, a Relay for Life gift bag, and a cooler.
