Either that or it rarely breaks so they don't stock it.
Bingo! Same pushrod as on the SV, I think, and the greatest cause of breakage is a broken chain. So guess how often that happens... LOL!

Roasted in 3,000 miles....super soft tire!

Will probably get one more rear and replace both once the front is done

One quick ride for an errand got exponentially worse



So she's parked...needs chain and sprockets anyhow

It's been 3 months...3,500 miles...it *must* have had a lot of miles beforehand because I have read reports of 5-10,000 miles and I barely got 3,000 out of mine

The rears are hella expensive at $130-$160 per tire...so I may try a Shink rear to use up the front and off road with them until I go to PR...then just use the YZ for dedicated dirty duty

Looks like the tire rarely goes around corners. LOL!

I've been told that my Bridgestone Trailwings last only about 3k miles. I currently have 2k and I can tell the middle section of the rear is beginning to flat spot. I need to ride the corners more to even it out.  $150 for a rear does sound pricey for that tire.
