If you are questioning the condition of the tire check the wear bars.

I would suspect the entire depth of the front tread is 6/32 which is pretty standard for front moto tires. That means 4/32 to the wear bars.
My Bridgestone, Avons, and my wife's Michelin's are all 6/32 total tread depth when new.

or a place on the web to find it.

Thanks,
Jim

I bought this bike and it had a metzler front tire that has 4/32 total depth left and 7,000 miles on it. Ought to be good for another 4-5,000, but with no experience with metzlers I will keep a close eye on it.

I can find the total tread depth for Bridgestones and Dunlops but not Metzlers.

Thanks for your help.
Jim

Tires are like a roll of toilet paper, the last half goes a lot quicker than the first half.
