Chicken strips

Hi all

So after a big day of riding through some nice twisty roads and loads of fuel lol we stopped and took a look at the bike and noticed that i had no to very little chicken strips on the rear tyre but on the front tho there is a section that is about 1 inch wide that is nice and clean the front still has the little whiskers on it..

So my question is why is the front not rolling in i am getting low enough to drag my knee is it the way i am riding ? Is it that i need to get the suspension dialed in it is totally stock currently...

Thanks all

The front will never match the rear. I get close to the edge of the front on the track, because of high corner entry speed. The tire does get rather melty though.

That pic looks close to where mine is at currently with out the melting tho lol.. Is the melting from the tyre getting really hot and gripping or from it sliding??

TheX is right.

Even on a track day, you don't want to get ALL the way to the edges on the front. Unless you are very fast & experienced (or just stupid) and willing to risk a get-off, expect to reach the edges of the rear long before you get there on the front.

Short answer = "this is normal and expected"

I was once told Chicken Strips are not measured on the rear tire but the front .

Chicken strips on the rear get smaller due to amount of acceleration out of corner, on the front the speed of inturn or braking on corner...
