I got 8000km out of each of my 1st 2 tires on my 650... mostly fully loaded on cross country tour.

YMMV. Rear 8-12,000mi give or take. 2up and load will chew it up, make sure to run higher pressure.

Front will last longer in normal conditions but Wee is hard on fronts in twisties; friend of mine who teaches MSF class managed to finish it in 7k.

Bridgestone Battlewings (BW501 & BW502):

front - 15,000 to 17,000 miles (24,000 to 27,000 km)
rear - 9,000 to 13,000 miles (14,000 to 20,000 km)

Loaded with side cases, top case, tank bag, pillion bag, and me. Changed with 1mm to 2mm of tread left, usually just before a 3,000 to 4,000+ mile trip. So probably some life left.


YMMV
