You may not be able to entirely avoid cupping. Tire cupping or irregular wear is a somewhat common occurence on all vehicles. On a four-wheel vehicle, you are advised to rotate your tires periodically to even out wear. Unfortunately, you do not have this luxury with a motorcycle because front and rear tires, unlike those on a four-wheel vehicle, are not interchangeable.
However, there are steps that can be taken to minimize cupping and uneven wear on a motorcycle:
1. Maintain your motorcycle and particularly your front forks and suspension.
2. Maintain your tire pressures. Underinflation or overinflation in motorcycle tires are significant causes of cupping and uneven wear, particularly in association with hard braking.
