With 43K on the 07 GT, I have stuck with the Metzelers. Avg about 9k on the front and 11k for the rear. All tire sets have worn evenly. Sorry I am am not much help. Is it windy where you ride? Might want to keep a right to left cross wind to even things out
I have an '08 and my cousin an '07 K12GT, on a trip to Colorado both motorcycles had the same uneven wear on the left side of the front tire. I think there has to be something odd on the alignment of these motorcycles. I have pictures of both.

Tires look like they will go at least another 5-6k.
Maybe you shouldn't let your mother-in-law ride side-saddle...
Tire Wear on 2009 K1300GT
Maybe riding harder on left turns than right. I have some friends who can ride hard into left turns but not so much into right turns.
Tire wear on 09 KGT
First, thank you to all who posted their observations on tire wear. I haven't responded at all since 11-06-09 because someone very dear to me passed away 2 weeks before Christmas. I need now to get the
GT to the dealer and have to pick a tire. I'm hoping the problem was a combination of riding style (as you suggested) and brand. I will get a Michelin and see what happens. As far as the recalls go, I had the bike at the dealership from 8-21-09 to 10-2-09, (left turn quit) and they kept getting the wrong left switch assembly. Funny, when I picked it up, with the new assembly, the cruise didn't work. O well. Never did have a stall problem though. Again, thanks to everyone.
