Hi, i just bought a sweet ass bike, 2008 CBR600rr. Only 6000 kms when i bought it and i've put on 700kms since. The tires are starting to get flat in the middle because i guess the previous owner just rode alot in the city. My friend told me I should get new tires but there is still tread left.

I need to get the suspension adjusted as well since previous owner was about 150lbs and i'm 180lbs. Should I get new tires and then get all that done at once? Will it have to be re-adjusted if I get the suspension and settings to my weight and then get new tires later?


thanks

Wait till you get fresh rubber on there to try to fine tune your suspension as far as damping goes. Springs shouldn't be such a big factor with your tires, necessarily, so if you want to go ahead and replace the springs then that would be fine. The damping however, should be done with fresh-ish rubber at least. That way you are not chasing your tail because your tires don't handle correctly due to their squared profile.

Unless the previous owner actually changed the springs in the suspension you can return it to stock, but I personally use suspension settings from sportrider.com and it handles so much better. The stock suspension is set up for a 180 lbs person btw.

if you do have the luxury of winding roads and you can spend more time in the corners than just settle in, i think like what the others have said, they will wear in a little better.

there are not twisties where i live, so i have a flat rear tire right now, def affects handling in a negative way.
