I normally get the bike onto some stands so that I can spin the tyres. Spinning the tyre by hand and using a file, I take off the outer protective coating on the edge of the tyre for about one inch,that way, if I have to swerve in an emergency and have to crank the bike right over, I have something to grip with!! The rest of the tyre I leave alone and let the road do it's work!

I do believe in "running in" my tyres as they last a lot longer, that is if you can wait for a few hundred miles.

Don't go thinking I'm some sort of "Granny" who has a spirit level on the handlebars and keeps the "Bubble" in the middle!! LOL I'm not! LOL

Anyway, just my twopence worth.

Regards

Ted

I just got a new tire this fall. If you have a rear wheel stand, just lift the rear wheel, turn on the choke, put the bike in 3rd gear with the choke on, and while the wheel is spinning off the ground, just run sandpaper across it, lightly. worked perfect for me.
