tire chop is an uneven wear across the pattern of the tire. if you run your hand across a new tire it's virtually 'flat'; whereas, a chopped tire will have hi & lo spots, usually caused buy bad shocks, springs, or in the case of a car, struts.Please:
What is "chopped"
New term for me.
I think it is a function of how hard/soft the front tire is too, and the weight on the tire and air pressure.I can see the theory, but i'm not a knee dragger, so I don't THINK that's it. I do get low sometimes but I didn't think I did it often enough to chop the tire. I'm gonna have to do some more research on the "pencil eraser" to tire theory and see how it plays out.
Are you saying changing the front end of your Busa fixed this?Hmmm quickest and cheapest way to fix this I had similiar issues with mine is buy a complete front forks and yoke set usually comes with handle bars and grips & damper for about $300 bucks for the guys that strip hayabusa's so they can put the engines in custom cars look on ebay should be some near you. $300 bucks is the max you should pay
