I found your comments perfectly relevant and friendly in nature and tone.

You made it clear you were not scolding, and were offering only information based on theory, and that others may have had practical experience that differed from theory.

Hope you don't stop making posts like this- I find them helpful, and I appreciate it.

How big of a PITA was it to change?

It was not any more difficult to spoon on than any other tire.
===============================

Hold on... the tire on the left is "worn out"?

No it aint worn out...but I can't stand the noise it makes on the pavement. Might stud it up for next winter
===============================

If you cant get that bead to seat at max of 40psi- deflate , & spray-or add some soap solution to the entire bead of the tire, (murphy's oil soap works great and is non-corrosive) and try again. Its not necessary to use 60psi or more to seat the bead, and it could cause you some safety issues- like exploding the tire, and we dont want to see an inmate taking himself out with a tire explosion- Save the injuries for riding related mis-haps.


Yeah I deflated used soap, a little WD-40 and re-inflated 4 times...each tim up to 60 psi. Each time it went a little further.
There was about 6" that was giving me a problem. The final time it looked like it was continueing to move ever so slightly .
Wifey and I took off for a 4x4 up in the bush foe a few hours and when I returned home it was all in place
===================================
Moto z on a SE
Man this thread took a wrong turn fantastic tire tho


LMAO
It sure did
=====================================

I will not buy another 908 ever! Love the motoz.good as any other knobby on pavement

+1...shittiest tire I have ever bought. Over priced, crapy off road and gave the bike a death wobble on the pavement at 120kph
======================================

you are right, sorry guys & joker660- I get carried away sometimes & didnt mean to hi-jack the thread

HAHA

Went out on Friday and the tires seemed to work pretty good.
The rear was a little slippy on the dry loose trails(thought I had a flat a cpl times), but I think I just had the pressure a little high @ 28psi on the rear.
The front worked well, didn't slip out anywhere.




Was really impressed on a long steep icy up hill. As long as I didn't spin the traction was good.

A friend came over with his 950ADV and had just put the same tire on the rear of his bike.
Looking at the base of the nobbies on his bike I could see 'flexing' lines , he has the stock ADV rim.

I inspected mine(stock SE rim) but did not see any of the flex lines where the nobbies meet the carcass.

Man people are funny... Anyways I'm going to run the motoz's here pretty soon, my buddies have ran them and liked them a lot off road. On the street they said they crack at the base of the nobs on high speed runs or hard acceleration. But come on guys you can't compare a 10/90 tire to a 90/10 tire (street/dirt). And these bike are hard on tires. Best advice I have ever received, from a well respected rider (bigwan), "Erik... Hahaha, you bought a bike you can't afford, get used to it".

Im pretty sure thats the same tyre I have on my 525 - and the tyre wore pretty quick at first (there was a bit of pavement involved) but then started to settle down. Havent ridden the 525 frequently enough to judge the wear-rate of the tyre...

Thats what I hear about the tread wear on these tires.

Hit the bush / snow today. This tire performed great
