I have recently bought a 2000' F650 Dakar with 'new' tyres. They are Metzeler front and back.
On a recent trip to Cornwall I went off road for about 10 minutes heading up the costal path by Porthtowan toward Portreath. :riding:
The next day I happen to see that one of the knobs from...
What is the largest size I can fit ?
I need a new rear Anakee as the front had just been replaced when I bought it 1000 miles ago. Think I should replace the rear now.
This is purely from an aesthetics point of view - sad I know, but the tyre thats on there now looks too small in comparison...
hi there i been informed that when carring a pillion passenger you should increase the rear tyre pressure , has anybody got any information on to how much to increase it by.?? :?
(I passed my test 2 weeks ago and its the best thing iv ever done.!)
Have just bought a 650 Dakar and just about to put some new tyres on. Would like to do about 50/50 on road and off road. I have been told the Conti TKC 80's are good but ware out quick. Has anybody used the Conti Escape tyres? if so are they any good?
My bike recently failed the MOT due to a bald rear tyre among other things. The center tread was worn right down. After checking the history I keep it covered 9,400 miles. My brother thinks that it should have survived longer and that I have too much pressure in them. I know the pressure is...
Sorry about the gormless question, but I've used search and had a look everywhere that I can think of but I can't find this info.
I want to order some tyres, but I don't have the bike with me, so please could anyone tell me what the sizes are for a 95 Funduro? (All the tyre sites...
I took my bike for it's MOT today and found a nail embedded in the rear tyre. As you all know the recommended fitment is a Z-rated tyre. Of course this is a wee bit OTT for the CS but what I'd like to know is has anyone fitted lower rated tyres? Any recommendations as ?140 to replace 600-mile...
Due for a change on the rear currently running meztler sahara enduro 3, should i stick with this or are there better alternatives and if so can i mix and match different tyres front and rear without upsetting the handling.?
Finally got round to fitting my new TKC80's.
Went off for a ride to scrub them in, came back rather quick to check the tyre pressures.
They understeer in corners and the front end is very twichly.
Off road they are fantastic, had a go though a long muddy puddle, loads of fun!
But I'd read that...
Recently contacted a tyre supplyer off the web. I wanted a set of TCK-80's because these seem to be the dogs preferables when it comes to a decent dual sport tyre.
The shop told me that they had them in stock, but they wouldn't pass an mot in the UK! :wall:
Has anyone on this forum got...
No, no , don't all doze, off - this is a really easy tyre question ..... honest! :big grin:
First, there was the preamble -
I picked up my "new" '95 F650 yesterday and rode it about 70 miles home. It wasn't the smoothest of rides, but I put that down to wet roads and me not being used to...
Close to tyre replacement time again, i've had Tourances in the past but for some reason i eat front tyres!!
Test rode a new F650GS with whatever tyres they come with, and they felt much better around the corners, always felt the tourance was going to wash out on the front!
So at the risk of...
Just checking over the bike this morning and noticed the rear tyre tread getting a bit low, about 4mm in centre of wheel.
I was a little surprised as its only covered 1800 miles since new.
It's a metzeler enduro 3 sahara, is this usual?
Heard the TKC 80's are good ?
Any recommendations :think:
Just wondered if anyone else with a CS has had this problem? I've done just under 7000m, still with the original OE Michelin Pilots and the rear tyre is getting squared off quite a bit. Although I'm not a knee-to-the-floor type I do lean reasonably when going around corners and bends. I check...
