How many miles have you put on i? Some of the stuff you describe is scheduled maintenience. I commute on my 250 (55 miles a day) and have nearly 10,000 miles on it since July. Replaced 1 set of brake pads and am about to replace rear tire. Chain and sprockets ok, but I keep them lubed and clean. Tires and other things just wear more quickly on bikes than on cars.

Yeah, not too surprising that the OP hasn't replied to the thread which he started. I think his "over a $1000 in tires, brake pads, and chain & sprockets" is a complete load of bull sh!t, even if he paid the going labor rates at a dealership to have the work done.

No apologies forthcoming and certainly no hint of compensation, even though they have been offering rebates to new purchasers and I paid full price and seem to keep paying one way or another. I had originally hoped that this would be a cheap commuting option- how wrong I was. What a lemon!!!
I agree on tires and pads.

How long do you think a set of tires should last?

My 2011 has a little over 5k, 3500 from the first owner, the rest from me, and the tires are the original IRCs. The front looks fine but the rear is ready to go -- smooth in the middle, but no cords showing, yet. I'm anxious to put some good Bridgestone Battleaxes on there. Maybe I can finally actually start scraping the pegs regularly. Or is that going to require some suspension fiddling?

Hope you have some kneesliders and good training to go with that pegscraping?

Tyres wont decide whether you can or cant, you'd be surprised at what the IRC's can do, and they have good feel on the edge.
