Hi my rear tire is making a howling noise . I have a 95 GL 1500 . The tire looks like it is wearing in the middle but lots of tread on the sides . Tires are dunlop E3;s . Bike handles fine . I probably have 8 or 9 k on tires . Should I replace ? Thanks Rick H
It seems the more miles you put on m/c tires the louder they get. Put a new set on and you will think something is wrong because you don't hear any noise. 9K on bias tires is not a lot. I usually got 14-16k out of a set of OEM Dunlops on my 98 GL1500. I did a mix of super slab and back road driving. Best thing to do is check the wear indicators on the tires and see when they stand. You can decide from there..
