Ok this tire is on a 1981 GL1100I. It was purchased just a few months ago & has around 3,000 miles on it. Why is it wearing so fast? On spots it is almost to the cord & other spots it still has a little bit of tread left. The bearings were replaced about a month ago & the tire looked good then. We put it up on the center stand today & moved the tire back & forth & there is no play. Could it be something with the shocks? We put a board under & lifted the tire up & it looked like one of the bottom bolts goes up & down inside the shock hole. The other side does not move. Any help is appreciated to find the trouble before spending big bucks on a new tire again.
