Trials tire on a BRP?

2 posts in this topic

I had read that people were getting huge traction with trials tires like the X-11 on their bikes. They were even putting them on larger displacement bikes like the KTM 525's. Has anyone tried these tires on their 600/650's?

I haven't tried it but from what I've read it sounds fantastic, especially in the snot.

The main issue seems to be installing a second rim lock and getting them to grab. Here's a couple threads on the subject: http://209.162.215.232/bb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=981&highlight=trials

The set screw mod seems to be the trick.
