Hey guys, wondering if anyone knows what would cause uneven tyre wear? i brought the dyna 1 1/2- 2 years ago and i am up for a new front tyre, the only thing is on the right side of the avon tyre is worn but the left side isnt, anyone know how to correct this?
hope someone can help
I've seen this problem with bikes having air assisted front shocks. Different pressures in each shock causes the tyre to wear more on one side.
Guess that would be the same with oil only shocks.
Maybe there's different amounts of oil in each of the front shocks or different viscosity of oil in each.
Change the oil using the same oil and same type might help.
I think your doing well having a tyre which lasted for 2yrs
Front tyre wear on one side has got nothing to do with road camber
Swingarm is mounted to engine-transmission.which is rubber mounted
On top of the engine is an adjustable link, moves top of engine left or right
Stand bike upright with front wheel straight ahead.
I use a magnetic vertical spirit level. Stick spirit level on front disc. Move bike left or right to set to vertical. hold in place.
Put spirit level on rear disc and check for verticle .You will find bubble will be different
Adjust to verticle by turning link on top of engine
When set correctly, No abnormal tyre wear and handles HEAPS better
Not one harley that i have set the geometry on has been set correctly in the factory.
PS Make sure fork legs are same hight too.....First
Jeez Dyna, if you must Drift, try and even it out to both left and right turns !
Check your rear wheel is set properly. Measure the distance between swingarm pivot and axle centres. Should be the same each side.
Tyre pressure would be my first check
Yep, all of the above re a softy.
9 times outta 10 it's rear wheel alignment on a softy, try and get a lazer aligner to set the alignment. Bunnings, $ 25.00.
place aligner on rear pully and adjust so that drive belt is straight from rear to front pully, that way wheel alignment and belt alignment are good to go,
no more uneven front tyre wear.
