I believe I saw a few folks asking about availabilty of Wide Whitewall Tire for the 17 inch front wheel? Up until now I guess they were not available? Dunlop just came out this year with Front American Elite 130/90HB-17 Wide White Sidewall Tire - 33AE81. This has the dual compound. Was listed at Dennis Kirk. Hoping it is quieter than the original Dunlops. I had my F407 front replaced at 5,254 miles by the F408, but it still huums on the corners. I now have 20K+ on the bike and it was a very good wearing tire. Cheers.
