my SI front has around 800 miles on it and looks worse than yours,it still grips just as well as day 1 the knobs are starting to seperate from the carcass at the base ( not bad enough to worry about yet) is maybe your problem that the side knobs are cracking off? heavy rock use will destroy this tire. or maybe something has changed? forks/shock redone,different fork oil,tire pressure f/r, etc could be your girl's put a hex on ya t'ill you buy her a better bike
Hate to say it but I am on my second SI front and the first tire chunked and had the knobs break off and it still gripped well! Amazing tire in my opinion. Maybe you got an early lemon. New tire this year.

funny you say that. Just picked up a 1997 WR200 for her today. This little bike gets along quite nicely, and it turns in a way that the 426 can only dream of!

Half my problem is the way I ride it. Cuz I'm so tall, when I'm sitting down I tend to sit too far back ( my bum bag hangs over the edge of the seat!), with not enough weight on the front tyre. Didnt remember it being this bad when the tyre was new. I guess I'll just have to work on my riding style.
