My tires were a little squared off from too many commutes to work when I put my bike away (bike is a CBR 600 F3). Anybody have any tips for fixing this? As i said the problem isn't taht bad, but is noticable.

I thought of applying a fine grit sandpaper to the outer edges of the tire as I turn the ingine in 1st gear at 4k rpm or so while the bike is on a swingarm stand. I'd also apply water to the tire to keep remperatures under control (sort of like a reverse grinding wheel). Is this as dumb as it sounds?

Yes. --MO
