Idoubt your fork fluid levels have anything to do with uneven tyre wear,depending on where you live dictates how your tyre wears,if you live in uk then you tend to turn right more than left therefore wearing the tyre more on the right and reverse this for anywhere they drive on the wrong side of the road.tyre pressures are important... to check the fork fluid level you need to drain the oil into a measuring jug,compare result to manufacturers recommendation.if you are not mechanically competent do not attemt this as you may get hurt as the fork internals are under load from a spring

650 v-star Yamaha pulls to the right, slight vibration, tire wears on the left side. changed tire tube and balanced


Hi, Joseph and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.
13. Rims and tires are out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft improperly tightened or assembled.

The front tire on my 1500 classic wears badly on one side. Bearings and fork oil levels are good.


The real wheel is likely not centered. Check the rear wheel and carefully measure the distances from the axle to a fixed point they need to be even. If they're not you will get the uneven tire wear you describe.

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

I have an 04 boulevard s50 with a front end wobble. all the bearings are tight and tire pressure is good. Any ideas? mikeytmh


Check the tire itself, out of round, uneven wear, it could also be out of balance, also check all your front end nuts and bolts and that your forks are aligned correctly!

Fork fluid


If there is no fluid on the fork legs or the wheel the fluid very likely isn't leaking and is OK.
If there is fluid the fork legs need servicing at which time the fluid will be drained and replaced.

Uneven front tire wear


I would suggest that the wheel is of centre. check your preload and fork oil. you may also have a weak spring. this will allow one fork to ride higher and cause the wheel to lean to one side.
