Rear tire 650l

10 posts in this topic

Well it is that time again :D

My chin shein rear tire is worn out and I am looking for a replacement.

The chin was a fairly aggressive nobby which was nice (off road) while it lasted but I commute on the bike and it has only been 2k miles which IMO is not long enough. I desire to step up to a more durable tire for street use but still have some decent lateral traction in the dirt. I found This metzler which they use on the big BMW GS's.

Has anyone used these on their 650L or comparable DS? What did you think, etc.

Thanks in advance

Rob

Thats a pretty nice looking rear tire.

I just ordered a set of these

They are not too wide, but everyone that has them sure raves about them.

Cool

How long did the Kenda last On road?

Thanks

Rob

I made 2000 miles on my last k270 rear, I changed it cause there was no more grip in dirt but it could've lasted at least 1000 more miles of street use only.

I've switched to Kenda Trackmaster front and rear now.. much more agressive and still DOT!
