Stock tire life

I have new tires but I am wondering what the avg. life is/should be from both front and rear stock Dunlop k750's.
Search turns up lots of related info. but little in simple terms.
/so
What are you all getting as avg. life from Stock tires
Front
Rear.
ME: Front-6900 Still rolling?? Rear 4500- changed.
I'm thinking it's about time to change my front?

My stock rear Dunlop lasted 3500 and the front made it to 5000

The hiway miles took its toll on the rear in short order!

I don't remember, but that seems about right to me.

I don't let tires go too far, though. They're important.

6000 miles on rear stock and 8600 and counting on front stock.
All done on the highway.

2,000 miles on the rear. Front was still "okay" but I changed it, anyway. Less miles than most get, but riding on gravel all the time wears them out a lot faster.
