Wow...only 1600?? Are they using a different stock tire now? I will admit pushing my stock tires beyond their true life, but the back still survived 5,500 miles and the front even more. I would guess 4,500 was the real limit on the back.
I run MEFO's and just now changing the rear with 7,000 miles on it. I could have probably squeezed another 1,500 out of it, but the tube messed up. I figured why have to mess with the tire again in such short a time and decided to put the new one on. I imagine the tire has reached it's true life though. Squeezing anymore would be just like what I did with the stock one.
