    Bought my first Harley, 2008 FXSTC, bike had 2100 miles when I got it, 11000 now. Seems to be chewing front tires, on my 3rd one now. Anyone have suggestions?

    Welcome to the forum from Suwannee. The spec on your bike calls for an MU90-21. What tire are you running? In your other post you say that the tire is cupping and that you check the air pressure regularly. What pressure are you running? You could have an alignment issue and the manual shows how to check this. This could also be caused by how aggressive you ride. I would first check to make sure that the alignment is correct and I would also check to make sure the forks are not bent. I would also check the head bearings and check the tension using the fall away test.
