Don't sweat it, all tires will eventually cup, just ride it 'til the tread's low.

Unless you are one of those lucky ones who can afford new tires often.:cheeky1:

I have some pretty noticeable cupping, actually more of a sawtooth effect on my rear tire about the only detriment I can think ofrunning with a tire like that is that you might, just might, have a slightly weaker grip on hard cornering (which along with hard braking and accelerating caused it in the first place). I get a little buzz noise from mine in a heavily banked turn.

Here's a great article on motorcycle tire wear:
