Motoz

Hmm, I literally just got back from the local shop and was sorely disappointed - no matter how we tried we could NOT get the Motoz to seat on my 4.25" rim. Anyone looking for a brand new 140/80/18 desert cheap should PM me. I'm going back to the 908 which I loved.

They're about the nastiest tire to seat but when you do they're the DEAL. Now..shhh! Let this thread slowly die before the prices soar like the 908's did.

Interesting tire. It has been around for a long time (3-4 years) but yet the biggest Adventure Bike family in the world do not use it (not give it a change maybe).
I ordered a set for my 990 (stock rims) just to give it a try. Set costs less than my 908RR rear. How bad can it be???
I'll post it here if I like it or not soon.

Just bought a set F & R for my SE, from a local shop - they were $195 out the door and he got them in 1 day.

I rode with a 990 Adv rider this week in Baja running a set and he really likes them. The rear was spread out pretty far because of that wide rear rim but he puts a serious pounding on that bike and has had no problems.

Spoke to the importer last weekend. They have had a surge in sales for the big bikes and thus ran out of US inventory. THey are available now and they have increased the numbers being imported.

I have a set in the garage to mount up... they look great!

As far as I know they all do that. Mine did but and I ran it this way until the end, cracks didn't get worse than that.
