    Has anyone who is riding one of the earlier produced 09 Touring bikes noticed if the tread pattern is inverted on the D407F front from what is on the rear D407 rear?
    On the front tire the "Y" is pointing down. On the rear tire the "Y" is pointing up. Both tires are mounted correctly as far as rotation goes.

    Are you sure the arrow is facing in the proper direction?

    Quite sure. Arrows on both tires indicate forward motion as they are mounted.
