Not for the daily rider
August 28, 2011Ive got a 03 Dyna. The truth is 7k on a rear is about all you are going to get. These tires have a soft compound but do not do well with heavy breaking in wet conditions. You have to keep conditioner on the tires to keep them from cracking. Tire pressure is going to be a must and weekly. For the guys that ride every day and all year. These tires will not do as well as some other brands. Im 40 have been riding for over 15 years. My advice is look for a harder compound for higher mileage, hotter weater and heavier bikes. Be ready to not hit the curves as hard. Hope this helps .

Crappy 402 tires
June 01, 2011Could hardly get 8000 miles on rear wheel. Just put a 491 elite 3 2day for a try.

Never get past 6000 miles
May 15, 2011I own a 94 FLH which I have installed a 05 swingarm onto. Even before I did this I could never get two seasons out of any type of Dunlop. The reasonI changed out the swingarm was I would wear out a set of rears at about 4-5000 miles becuase of the worn out bushings and wanted the 1 inch bearings in the wheels. I have used Avons with the same result.

December 24, 2010I just purchased another Dunlop 402 rear tire. I had this tire on my bike for 18 months and put 17,000 miles on without any problems. There was tread left on the tire but it was getting close to the wear indicator so I replaced it. This will be my third Dunlop 402 rear tire, the first getting over 18,000 miles wear and that was with two up riding. The tire also handles very well in wet weather.

Good grip low mileage
May 20, 2010I consider myself a fairly conservative rider. Sure I like to twist on the throttle a little bit sometimes but I don't get crazy with it. This was stock tire on my 08 Softail. No problem with handling or traction but only 7500 miles and getting ready for a 1000 mile round trip. Just checking everything out and center of rear tire is almost worn slick. Looking for other options.

Good front tire
May 19, 2010After 22,300 miles on the stock front(Dunlop 402) tire of my Heritage it looks like I can go till my 30,000 service before I'll even think about changing it.
I get an average of about 12,500 miles on the rear Dunlop 401, as it looks like I won't have to put the third one on till my 25k service.
They handle good---I can't complain.

Better than expected
March 29, 2010I run the stock Dunlop 402's, front and back. Got 19,000 out of the back and am going to change the front so I have fresh rubber at 30,000+
This is on a 08 Ultra Classic. I believe that the manner of riding has a huge impact on the life of a motorcycle tire. I have nothing to prove so I don't pretend I'm at a drag race everytime I take off from a stop light.

March 13, 2010I am now riding a 07 street glide and run the Dunlop 402s . I cannot complain about the traction as they seem to do well in all weather conditions. Before the Glide I rhode a 95 Fat boy which I traded at 138k. I have never got more then 8000 miles out of a rear tire either bike and normal on the front both bikes is about 13000. I do not understand how folks talk about getting 20 thousand 30 etc? At 8000 miles you cannot see where the tread used to be? Only thing showing now are the cords on my bike. I check my tire pressure religiously and run 38 psi front and rear. What gives?

I'm not impressed

Dunlop D402 Inconsistent Wear
February 08, 20102000 FLSTC, one up highway and country riding, 36 psi. First two rear tires lasted 12,500 each before hitting 2/32. This latest only went 10,000. Same bike, same riding conditions, composition of tire must have changed. I like the handling, but this accelerated wear rate is unacceptable.

January 06, 2010I have a 04 sportster (yeah a girls bike) my tires WERE Dunlops and the front tire is the worst tire i have ever seen. There are thousands and thousands of cracks about 1/2 to 1 inch long and one thats about a quarter of the way around the tire (about 12 inches). I didnt even look at the back. I can handle a back flat but a front is almost impossible to control so heres a big F U to dunlop. I recommened walking in flip flops before riding on dun lops.
