I will try to ajust the way it was tightened.

I just find curious that there are so many different tire wear.

It probably has to do with which side you "dress". but only if you're well endowed.

All of my bikes have always showen more wear on the left side. I figured it is from the crown on the road. The water must go somewhere.

All my fronts wore on the left, and with cupping first. I tried many different tires, and they all did the same wear thing. It's all about the drive shaft, the way the bike is built( motor/ frame/drivetrain out of alingement, and offset. Experiment with the side bags by putting different weight in them, it has helped, (a hint, put more in the right side!)
