My set arrived today too.  I guess I ordered a white wall for the front...never even noticed what I did 'til it arrived.  So, cool...we'll see how that looks.
I was looking at fronts also and noticed the good price on them but saw that big whitewall then saw the "WW" on the model number. The blacks were about $50 more I believe :(

    Wow, so that was a good screw up on my part.  I just looked at the size...it's a lesson at the very least.

      Got mine.  Anyone else notice that the wear bars seem pretty thick.  In other words, doesn't look like you'd ride all that long before hitting them even though there would be a lot of tread left...

      Phil you can get some Back to Black at Pep Boys and get rid of the whitewalls

      What is the wear bar? Can someone please post a pic of it? Thanks.

      Best to just Google pics.  In general they are thin rubber bumps in the tread at various intervals.  DOT requires them.  They are usually 2/32 thick(at this thickness tires are illegal).
      The new Avon ones are huge and to me serve no purpose.  Might reach out to the company in case we got bad/reject tires etc.

      Thanks I am debating to get a pair now or right before my June Pensacola/Panama FL trip but my Yamaha Dealership will NOT put on a 240mm on the stock rim as they say they can only the size the manufacturer recommended for the rim so they will only put back on 210mm and I can't find a 210mm Avon Cobra rear tire. So I will probably have to go to a non-Yamaha shop to have the 240mm put on but I hate going to any other place besides the Dealership as if anything ever goes wrong I can always say, "I bought it brand new with 1 mile on it and you have done all the service on it so...…" implying that if anything goes wrong it was them that messed it up and not someone else.

      Is there another Yamaha dealer around? My Yamaha dealer actually rides a Raider with a 240.
