Jackpot tires problem

Love my '06 jackpot, one thing, the front tire shows visible signs of wear to the point of replacement at only 5000 mi., my buddy has a 8-ball with 1000 more miles and less wear, same roads and driving conditions, would it have anything to do with the 250 rear tire?

If your Jackpot has a Dunlop Cruisemax on the front that's the problem. The first two Cruisemax's on the front of my Vegas had to be replaced at 6000 miles. The third tire was a Dunlop 90/90 Elite 3, that tire lasted 12,000 miles

Agreed. The 06 Jackpot OEM tire - Dunlop Cruisemax- is the problem. It will be cupped at 5-6k miles. I recommend going with what Victory replaced it with on later models, matching the rear with a Dunlop Elite 3. You'll get longer life, better performance, and it won't track in the grooved roads like the the Cruisemax does with the center stripe.

97 Cadillac Delegance Front end noise , dissapears when going into right hand turn then returns when straightening out. Tires recently rotated and balanced , tire that was on right front had wear pattern...


I would be checking out the wheel bearings for the problem. I would also be checking the front suspension for worn ball joints and steering end joints. Tyre wear patterns indicate unbalance-wheel alignment-shock absorbers and front end wear. I refuse to rotate tyres for several reasons Radial tyres when developing a wear pattern will retain that wear pattern even if placed on a trailer--Wear patterns show a fault for that wheel and tells which wheel and what needs to be done to repair it and lastly tyres wear in pairs so if you have a front wheel drive car why replace 4 tyres when the need is to replace only 2 front ones. Saves about 50% of the cost of tyres. The rotation theory came about from cross ply tyres and does not apply to radials except for tyre dealers profits

Front tyres bolding on the outside


Cars and trucks are supposed to have their tires rotated every 5,000 miles.
Doing this will only slow the wear on the outside of the tire. Whenever you turn a corner, the weight of the car and the forces of friction will cause the outside of the tries to wear off, the rubber is getting "scrubbed off".
Not rotating the tires will cause the outside of the front tires to wear out before any other part of any tire.
Then, there is the matter of worn "front end" parts.
The parts that wear most often and quickest are the tire rod ends. Next are the ball joints, and last are the shocks/struts.
When a car has about 100,000 miles, these parts begin to show their wear by causing bad tire wear.
Someone needs to check your car most carefully to see if any of these parts are causing your problem.
After all the worn parts are replaced, the last thing is the "front end alignment".
As you drive mile after mile, you occasionally hit bumps.
Although these bumps do not show up quickly, the bumps will, over time, cause the tires to become a little crooked, and about once every 3-6 years, the front end needs to be aligned, or have the tires straightened.
Be blessed.

Front tire wearing on left side


First, did u by the bike new? sometimes uneven tire wear is a sign that the frame or frontend might be tweeked, secondly, check the fork tubes sliders for uneven wear as well. also check the front and rear tire alignment with a lazer style pointer, they should be dirrectly inline with eachother. make sure u factor in tire width to ur measurements. Sounds like the bike may have been dropped at one time. May have a bent upper or lower triple clamp, maybe even a bent fork leg. hope this points u in the right dirrection

When should my shocks be replaced


well sometimes they claim that this shock has a 45,000 mi average life, Also note the wear on the tire if there is any. An over inflated tire will wear in the center more than the edge, a under inflated tire will wear on the outer edges, a bad shock can cause a tire to wear not necessarily the tread but the smootness of the tire, is it all rough with raised tread edges or uneveness? Does the vehicle have sway or does vehicle bounce or washboard when hitting bumps? does the shock have visual signs of fluid leak? These are all signs of shock failure and should be replaced. And not necessarily al four at he same time, replace shock with manufacturer equipment if replacing only one, if replacing two on the same axle you can use aftermarket matched shocks or factory oem.

The shuddering sounds like you need your brake rotors turned or replaced, The wearing of your tires could be worn tie rod ends and that would make the shuddering even worse

Stratoliner always tracked perfectly straight now veers slightly to left when I take my hands off handle bar it dosn't seem likely that it is a alienment problem only 4000 miles


Did you change anything ... like putting stuff in a saddle bag? Different boots? Have you cheked air pressure in the tires? Are you sitting on the bike differently?

I'm leaning to tire pressure or uneven front tire wear and it does not have to be a lot of uneven tire wear to act in thismanner.

Please my friend, get this looked at by your Yamaha professional

motorcycle tires are made of softer compounds than car tires,to increase traction & better handling.replacement at 10K mi. is not unusual.slightly more wear on the left can result from the 'crown' or slant of most roads.if it tracks straight [hands off?] and doesn't vibrate,it's time to RE-TIRE!

My front tires are showing wear, and they toe out when in reverse


Be sure to have tires rotated every 5000-6000-miles. Walmart is good for that.
Outside wear is normal for fronts from the turns at higher speeds.
When tierod ends were replaced it is advisable to get front end aligned. Its not impossible to replace with minimum change but if settings were done with worn parts, new parts will change it.

Aggravated front tire wear (outer edges)


Your situation is not not abnormal. Since you can't rotate due to different sizes front & rear & they are high performance "Y" speed rated tires 30K is really pretty good
