  6. Michelin T63 Dual Sport Front Tire

    1 review

    PRODUCT DETAILS Billed as a 50/50 dual sport tire, the Michelin T63 is nonetheless a worthy choice for the rider who primarily spends the majority of their time off road. Inspired by the Dakar winning Michelin Desert, the T63 features large burly knobs that grip in rocks, gravel and rough soft dirt. Additionally, you’ll be hard pressed to see any chunking here with the strong reinforced carcass construction. Tread pattern derived from Michelins highly successful Desert tires, for exceptional traction off road Excellent stability and durability High level of grip on the road Reinforced knobs resist tearing and abrasion on asphalt “S” speed rated for highway use
  7. Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa

    1 review

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The most versatile hypersport tyre for road and track use. A high performance tyre on the road and perfect for on-track sessions. Profile and structure make it a reference point in the segment thanks to the excellent support ensured in inclination and rapid realignment coming out of bends. Made with the most modern EPT design technologies developed in the WSBK, and thanks to multi-compound composition with three zones at the rear capable of optimising the area of contact, ensures the maximum grip on road and racetrack. Maximum performance on the racetrack and great reactivity on the road for incredible control of the bike in all situations. A tread with an aggressive pattern in line with the Rosso style.
  8. I was just wondering what tire brands and exact models of tires that the top guys use when they win these races... Erzberg, The Tough one, Hells Gate, Romaniacs etc.. Extreme Lagares and others. I'm more interested in the tires used in muddy slippery stuff . I haven't seen which tires are used exactly. I have a tough race coming up and it's probably going to be wet slippery and brutal and maybe I'll try something else if it works better. I'm going to need all the help I can.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The Motoz Tractionator Enduro S/T dirt bike tire is the best of both worlds. Aggressive motocross grip with robust enduro construction. The rear tire is reversible for Soft/Wet or Soft/Dry giving a more tailored traction profile for mud or sand/loam. Weight has been reduced to the max without lowering puncture strength. It is the closest thing to outright MX competition traction with enduro worthy carcass and sidewalls. Made from a hybrid natural rubber/synthetic compound Heavy duty case construction with a dense weave ply cord so greater strength and higher ply rating is achieved with less ply layers Constructed with thicker side walls for maximum strength Sidewalls and rim area are specially designed to protect the rim, but also to minimize pinch flats Vertical reinforcement section between the sidewall layers for greater sidewall strength Carcass is protected by a thick layer of rubber under the tread and around the sidewalls to help minimize punctures Rubber cushion zone allows a small amount of flex under the tread blocks to aid reflex traction and reduce chunk off, increasing tire life and acting as a heat sink to help cool the tire in extreme conditions Tread design gives rider a choice for slightly better grip in their local conditions, whether mostly wet (mud), or mostly dry (loam and sand) The difference in hook up, braking and deceleration into muddy corners can be as much as 10-15%, depending on conditions In varied or mixed conditions, best traction is achieved when a new tire is mounted in wet rotation, and changed to dry rotation half way through tire life Changing rotation isn't essential, but appeals to budget conscious riders who seek maximum wear life Terrapactor tread block design and placement helps compact, compress or wedge the terrain creating extra traction, drive and lift This unique concept coupled with the use of superior rubber quality works to lessen the impact on the terrain and provide extra traction Crown Radius Section specifically matched to the application Specifically designed for quick fitting and reduced service times Aggressive motocross style grip with heavy duty enduro construction Designed to handle serious mud to forest conditions Gives riders a consistent tire feel and behavior when switching between the Motoz Tractionator Enduro I/T and the S/T This motorcycle tire is tube-type These dirt bike tires are R rated for speeds up to 106 mph DOT approved and ECER75 homologation

    Putting a paddle tire on your offroad vehicle for use in loose sand is one of the easiest things you can do to fully utilize your power in loose sand. It is a small investment to make, and is worth it even if you only visit the dunes every so often. Paddle tires, or sand tires, are strictly for use in very loose packed sand, such as wide dunes. Using them in areas with hard packed sand or dirt, or (worse yet) pavement, will shred the edges of your paddles within a matter of feet, seriously damaging their usefulness. Dunlop may or may not still makes these tires, as of right now they cannot be found online.
  13. Hey guys. I have a 2015 YZ125 and it's standing on a 5 gallon bucket. The rare tire is off the ground and the front tire is not completely off but I'm sure there isn't much weight on it.. How do I get both tires off the ground? Does it matter that the front tire is completely off or what?
  14. Hey guys, Looking for a new rear tire on my Yamaha ttr-125l. I'll be on power line trails a lot so grass and gravel. Wondering what tires will wear best when also used on the road?
  15. http://dirtbiketest.com/product-tests/shinko-505-hybrid-cheater/#disqus_thread Anybody try this tire?
  16. I am looking to buy new tires for my KTM 300. Riding conditions are mostly hard packed dirt/ rocky with occasional mud (California trails). I want the best all around tire and have narrowed my choice down to the "Pirelli MT16" for the rear. My two size choices are 110/100 18 and 120/100 18. What size would work best for my riding conditions? Also what I need some recommendations for the front tire.
  17. I've had this tire on for just under 50 hours. Was prepping for this weekend and I noticed it was coming apart. It's not a gash from the trail, it's separating at the bead. It's doing it in couple of places. Any idea what would cause this? I've really enjoyed this tire, my favorite so far. Used Pirelli MT43's as well as knobbies. Looks like it has some life left. Bummed that I had to change it out early.

    PRODUCT DETAILS SPORTEC™ M7 RR is engineered to empower true riders with a sporty riding style, using their motorcycles in all conditions, weather and temperature. SPORTEC™ M7 RR derives from our experience in Road Racing activities including the “Isle of Man TT” and the “Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix”, featuring completely new profiles, structure materials, compounds and tread pattern. Because our roads are not always perfect like racetracks, we have to face unexpected wet patches, debris, temperature drop or uneven tarmac. Introducing a new concept of water drainage and contact feeling thanks to dual-compound on the rear tyre combined with Interact™ technology and high silica compounds. MAIN CHARACTERISTICS Sporty Handling: the combination of profiles derived from the Road Racing activities with high stiffness structures delivers an extremely agile handling for a sporty riding style on all roads. Grip in all Conditions: 100% Silica compounds combined with a special tread pattern gives SPORTEC™ M7 RR the unique capability to keep the sporty riding stile also in cold conditions, wet roads and greasy and grimy tarmac surfaces. Extended Mileage: 20% more mileage compared to SPORTEC™ M5 INTERACT™. A dual compound solution on rear sizes allows the use of a specific material on the central slick portion of the tread pattern to increase abrasion resistance and extend the mileage capability.

    Where a Trials tire falls short in braking and lose soil conditions, the Shinko 505 “Cheater” bridges that gap to make it the ultimate hybrid off-road tire. It's so good that “it’s almost like cheating”. Features: > New hybrid hard enduro / extreme single track trail tire finds traction in the most extreme conditions > Best of both worlds, soft sticky rubber compound like the Trail Pro trials tire in a knobby tread pattern to work in a wider variety of soil conditions > Adds confidence even in the most demanding terrain
  21. I usually run a knobby on the rear, but decided to go back to a good ol' MT43 for the rest of the summer. Unfortunately, the tire didn't handle the way I remember it did....I went down on a left curve, luckily at a fairly low speed. Riding this section of road is no problem over the years, this was also the first time I've gone down on the asphalt (don't recommend it!), so yeah it kind of sucked. Here are some pictures, and I'm interested if anyone has had issues with a trials tire on a dual sport bike on the street....OH and I should mention the shop had it aired up to 33 psi. Swelbow Hope you all stay safe out there, the old mantra "All the Gear All the Time" makes some more sense now (I was wearing moto pants, reg shoes, thin gloves and a thin hoodie. Super lucky it wasn't in shorts and t-shirt, which I'm known for wearing on very short rides into town. Not worth it!! I'm not worried about the scraps, the bruise on my ass and thigh are coming along nicely, but I'm very lucky it wasn't worse or involving other vehicles. Shoot, no one even saw....it was 6:45 in the morning.
