MOT Advice

Sorry if this is in the wrong section guys,

My bike is still off the road at them moment until the end of the month then straight into MOT for the start of the season,

Here in the US, the tread has to be higher than the wear bars to be legal.....

Look around the sidewalls and you should find some triangles pointing to the tread. Those mark the position of the wear bars.

If your tread still shows a groove between the tread blocks, instead of 'bridging', you would have legal tread here.

That has to happen across the full width of both tires....

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

I can't answer your question but what I can tell you is that your tires will last a lot longer and you will be faster (and safer) if you learn to get on the throttle smoother and earlier rather than standing the bike up and abusing your throttle.

Doesn't help you now but for future tires you will get a lot more life out of them.
