After reading all the posts regarding tire wear, I checked mine and found minimal wear on both the front and rear after 12K miles. I did notice that the front tire did have slightly more wear on the left side of the tire VS the right side. I've read where this is "normal"?? Question is... is there any reason the you shouldn't/couldn't have the tire flipped over on the rim as if you were "rotating it? thx

M/C tires have a special tread and need to rotate in the correct direction, in fact there is an arrow on the sidewall that lets the mounter know which way is up or forward if you want. So I don't think you're meant to flip it around.
