I bought my first motorcycle last year and I had 2 new tires last year to put on. I had them mounted and balanced by the place when I bought them. The back tire has more significant wear than the front. I have had to stop quite fast 2 times twice this year but other than that I have done nothing other than just ride. I have not spun my tires at all as I this is my first motorcycle and I am just getting used to riding and am just getting my confidence. I would like to know if my tire would be covered under warranty? I probably drove around 750 to 1000 miles this year but I cant be for sure because I had to replace my speedometer.
Firstly be aware that you resurrected a thread from 2011. The info may no longer apply.
What brand and model is the tire. Not that it makes a difference in regard to your warranty question but just curious to know. All tires wear differently, some a lot quicker than others.
I would say probably no warranty and you need to look at it objectively. There are so many factors that affect tire wear on a motorcycle. Pressure, braking, stunting, road conditions etc. And no matter what you say about the mileage and your riding habits the tire company likely isn't going to believe you. Warranty is extended when there is an obvious flaw in the tire but seldom heard of for wear. Unlike a car tire I don't recall ever seeing a motorcycle tire advertised with a mileage rating guarantee.
Ride on. It's only money.
