If you take a long trip ,like driving across South Dakota on I90 and there is a crosswind, you will drive 400 miles with the bike leaning at an angle. If your tires are soft you will see wear off center of the tread. If you are lucky enough to drive back with the crosswind blowing from the same direction as before ( for example from the north both times) then you will wear out the other side so the tire shape is more even.

Can u tell me how much oil should I add to front fork of my bajaj boxer delux 100 cc bike? not same amount of ct 100 bike

Hi Hirantha, there are many reasons for abnormal motorcycle tire wear, the trick is in identifying which one pertains to your bike and front forks are at the top of the "Usual Suspects" list the main culprit is a leaky fork seal on one side only, fluid leaks out slowly over time causing an unbalance in front fork dampening resulting in abnormal front tire wear. This is why a service manual, for your particular make-model-year, is mandatory in obtaining factory specifications to resolve such issues. If you are experiencing rough or hard spring action in your front end then you have put in too much fork oil or the wrong weight also the Bajaj Boxer Deluxe BM 100 and the Bajaj CT 100 are two different motorcycles and may have different fork oil capacities.

Keep your tires in good lasting shape

Did you ever see the statements in the tire dealer shops stating a specific tire model will last approx. 50-75,000 miles/
This will never happen unless you have your tires rotated every 7500 miles, the front tires wear excessively compared to the rear tires in 90% of the cars/trucks.
Why? Because the front tires in most cases are the drive tires(front wheel drive) causing the front tires to ocasionally spin causing excessive wear and also the front tires are the ones that guide your vehicle down the road, when you turn the steering wheel you are turning the front tires to make the car go in the direction you want thus causing more excessive wear to the front tires, in order to get even wear from front to back tires one must move the front tires to the back tires at 7500 mile intervals, making sure the tires only get rotated to the same side of the car each and every time, if you move a right rear tire to a left front position, severe damage may occur so please keep them same side rotations.
Also have your wheel alignment checked at a tire shop each time you bring it in for a wheel/tire rotation as pot holes, hitting curbs,etc all can effect the way the tires wear if the alignment goes out.

Slight pull to the left, notice more wear on left side of front tire than the right

Because it is a front tire, and a single tire at that, there is only two things that can cause that a bad faulty tire (inside wire spreading ) or break hanging up. Have first tire checked, but problem is once tire starts wearing on one side it will continue until, replaced. So to not have it happen again and ruen new tire have breaks front and back checked.

Speedometer quit working, the rest of the cluster is still working.

It may be that the speed sensor failed. This is a common item to go bad on this bike. If you look at the right side of the front tire where the axle is, you should see a black "donut" looking device snugged up to the hub; That is the speed sensor. It operates magnetically, so there is not a cable, just a wire. In order to change the sensor you will need to remove the front tire assembly.

Since the brake pads will come loose when you remove the tire, check those for wear and replace them if necessary.

God bless and good luck.

I just want to know what the tire pressure is for the front and rear tires

There is usually a sticker on the bike frame by the side cover that recommends the front and rear tire pressure. Regardless, I have found that running 35 pounds front and rear promotes even as well as longer tire wear. The ride may be harder but you also get less cupping on the tires.

My front tire wears uneven all the time. the left

Depends on a hundred things ... like tire pressure (#1 problem), how you ride, how you load your bike, how do you stop, are you always turning left (are you in NASCAR?), is it the right size to start with, what is the condition of the pavement, do you allow others to run your machine, is it balanced, is it a one way only tire and maybe on backward?

In my experience, since there are only two tires on my bike, and I don't want ANY trouble with them, I start watching my tires immediately and at any sign of uneven wear, they are gone. I run only high quality tires and I and fanatical about the air pressure.

Thanks for your interest in

Bigger tyre

The Bridgestone Excedra tire for the Suzuki C109RT is a 240/55-16 which may be a little taller than stock. There are only three motorcycle tires that will fit the Rocket III Standard and Classic, as baggage1 stated. The Metzeler ME88 Marathon 240/50-16, the Avon Cobra 240/50-16, and the Bridgestone above. I haven't found the Bridgestone commercially available yet, but you may check with a Suzuki dealer. The only other choice is the dark side.. car tires.. Which do work very well.
