Bt020 are sport touring tyres. It is rather abnormal to last 3 months. Whats your milege? I'm using 021, the next generation to 020, and they are good. Check your tyre pressure. Either Front 250 Rear 290 (with pillion) or Front 200 Rear 250 or anywhere in between, up to your preference. Insufficient pressure can shorten tyre lifespan. If you need more milege out of them, try road tyres then. Like Pilot Road. A friend of mine claims to have rode 30000km on them on an FJR1300.

P-plate should be an attitude to safety and riding. There's always more to learn.

im using Bt020...

 

quite surprise ur front tyre last only for 3 mths...coz mine oredi used for 11 mths, still going strong...

 

do you maintain proper tyre pressure? but then it could be ur mileage higher than mine....my average daily mileage is abt 60-70km per day...

per day my mileage is atleast 190km..... den times 5days..... is 950km per weekdays..... seee

 

Bo bian la... Your milege like that the s4 working like taxi liao ah.. Seems like normal wear and tear range for the tyres. To increase their life span, at most you can try to whack the bike less, avoid hard braking and slow down speed gradually by engine braking. Tyre pressure can use front 250 rear 290, but wet weather careful with lesser traction since u running on more inflated tyres.. hmm.. thats about it. And try road tyres.. Pilot Rd. Good on wet, and very very long lasting. if u dun play track or cornering, dun need sport touring or sport tyres la.. need value for money tyres.. Hope it helps.

 

This 021 huh... the front really wearing out faster than the rear, although i take care of tyre pressure weekly from day 1 when they were fitted. The rear still quite deep, but the front going to botak soon liao...
