Question about 2003 Yamaha FZS 600 Fazer
I recently got a new tyre (Bridgestone) fitted to the front wheel of my motorbike to replace the dunlop tyre. I noticed that above 20 - 30 mph that there is a significantly increased noise from the front wheel. Is this noise from the new tyre until in wears in or have they not fitted the wheel back in place correctly?
Tread pattern can affect road noise considerably. Did you select a type designed for dirt? It would be a sort of rough buzz. Check for correct air pressure. An incorrect tire mounting usually causes a 'lumpy' ride and could be very dangerous at speed. Raise the front end till the wheel is clear and spin the tire. An improper mounting will show as an uneven tire pattern as the wheel turns.
