I rode Avon Gripsters for as long as I could get them and I started late, I wish I had tried them earlier. I rode 2 different fronts 15,000 each and 4 different rears got between 8500 and 11,000 miles. They rode smooth, quiet and consistent.
As to the sloping tread blocks on the K750, totally Normal. You've got to look at the tire from the 'worms eye view' and then consider squeezing the front brake at every stop sign!
Keep your skinny front tire pressure 2 psi Higher than the rear.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
