I have a 2007 Deluxe with stock wheel and tire. I noticed that the front tire is wearing more on the right side (sitting on bike) than the left. From Center to left there is twice as much tread depth and the left tends to have a dustier look while the right is very black. Wear is even.

Any idea why it would wear like this?

Some uneven wear is normal, but yours sounds excessive. A weak spring in one fork tube will cause the exact wear you are speaking of. Had an Asian bike with a bad spring in one leg, showed exactly the wear you're speaking of. Also any bent front end parts.

No bent parts. I supose I could swap springs and see if it wears an the other side. Thanks
