Alternate front tires
Written by shotcoy on 9/10/2010 at 03:34 am

Hi Roy! Yes, I use the Battlax BT45 mounted backwards on the front. Currently
have 13,000+ miles on it. I think I'll get another 3,000 or so out of it. I run
40 psi in it. It could be said that I run it hard and put it away wet(details at
the end of the season/December). My last Dunlop K555 front was worn out at
10,000 miles. Ehjoy fun & safe riding! Dave "YT" Hoover
