2 years to do 7000miles that rate will take you near 2 weeks to scrub your tyres in  hell more likely your tyres will pass there sell by date than wear damage :lol: 

but as everyone has said best way to scrub them in is ride the bike just dont be heavy with the throttle and lean over to much just gradual and the bike will be fine 
Cant say i would use chemicals on my tyres never a good ideal doesnt take much to destroy or soften a  rubber compound but each to there own
