I have had many bikes over the years, but none in the sport bike arena like the Busa. With that said, I have never seen any of my tires wear like this. Are the roughed up sides normal? Center is smooth (for a tire) and both cornering sides are very rough. The center is not to the treadwear indicator yet with around 3K on the tires. Knowledge on the subject is welcome.

Yup, the roughness is normal. Mine also grow a lip on the front edge of the back part of the tread groove..

:poke: absolutly normal the sides are usually a softer rubber compound and thus will roll off beads of rubber, be glad they are though, because if they where not youd be kissing pavement...:laugh:
