Probably too much pressure in the rear tyre. There's no way I'd be running 39 in the rear, try dropping it down around 32 or even a bit less and see how it goes. Are they the original tyres or new ones?

As bods suggested - rear pressure is too high. Check the recommended pressure, but i don't think either are correct.

As also suggested - check your tires. What year is your CBR? Do you know if the tires have been replaced?

Tires lose traction from age, not just miles. Tread depth doesn't matter.

If they're the factory tyres still on it they will be as hard as anything by now. I would look at getting them changed as soon as possible. Most tyres are recommended to be replaced by about 7 years old regardless of how worn they are as the rubber hardens and breaks down with age, especially when they've been outside in the weather...

There's your problem.

It's time to replace them - no question. The mileage doesn't matter.

They are unsafe at this point, and as noted, weren't that great when new.

I've junked new OEM tires with less than 500 mi on them because they were not good enough. Tires are one of the most important items for safety on the road. I've been riding for over 40 years on the dirt, street, and track, and probably wouldn't ride around the block on your tires.
