Anyone ever heard of this tire tip...?

Have you ever heard of this one? Saw it on the official Dunlop site, and wondered if anyone has any insight or if its just being cautious.

Well, I had my bike on the dyno twice. On one set I put two track days on the rear after. Gas is proly right.

I don't think dyno testing is as hard on a tire as me ripping through the forest WOT for 30 miles...

the suracfe that your back tire is making contact with during the dyno session is often softer and less hot than the pavement its self. no when you run up to third gear on the street and take it to the redline and let off and repeat then you may see wear on your tires.

It's All In How The Bike was Run on the Dyno When we do a 500 Hp Turbo Busa Yes the tire Shows Some wear. But on most the 150 to 190 Hp Bikes Shows No real wear...

Maybe it has somehting to do with the way the bike is strapped down? Maybe if they strap it down too tight it can do some funky stuff, and this is just a catch all for any mishaps in legalese

I've heard this, but I've never seen a tire fail that was run on a dyno. In fact, we took a tire with a plug in it and hammered it intentionally on a dyno and couldn't get it to fail. Of course, I would never recommend doing such a thing...

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

Good insight. And Dunlop STILL sucks.
