Put it on one week a go and only done our local "twisties" (called dikes ;)) They feel about the same as the old anakees 2's on pavement.

However what i was not to happy about was the amount of effort to get them on the F800GS's 21 inch front wheel. Serously had to manhandle the fitting machine to make it work. Took a hour and 30 minutes and 3 people to get it to stick (with inner tubes). No scratches or dings but i fear i might have to remove it with a saw!

The front was tough to install on my Capo too. It has a pretty substantial sidewall.

After 23k miles on a pair of Anakee 2 tires on my V-Strom, I set out looking for another of the same. When I found it hard to find a pair at a good price, I saw the reviews of the Anakee 3 tires and decided to give it a shot. I just placed an order at CompAcc. I've had good experiences with them in the past and can't wait to get the new tires mounted and see how they compare.

Good luck with the mounting. I've only put the front on so far but it's the toughest tire I've ever mounted. Could not get the bead to seat, took over an hour airing up and down, lubing the bead, removing the tire completely and starting over. Finally got fed up and went in to eat supper leaving about 70psi in the tube/tire. Came out an hour later and thankfully bead had seated.

Really hope I never get a flat with these as I can't imagine getting a tube replaced and aired up properly using my portable compressor.

But I'm carrying tubes, irons, pump so I should never get a flat, right.

Hard to Mount!

Bought the Anakee 3's for my 1991 R100 GS. We got the rear on with lots of sweat even warming it in the sun. Next, the front. Again, very hard to get around the rim. No luck getting it to seat even with loads of No-Mar lube. Tried several times. Even put in 80 psi! Twice what Michelin said was OK. We used a manual machine. Rim is clean and I even wire brushed it. Ideas?

When I said earlier that I couldn't get my bead to seat, it never did "seat" as in getting the pop-pop like you normally do. But the bead just wasn't sitting properly in the wheel. There's a thin raised line on the tire that sits about an 1/8" outside the rim. I always had a bit of that raised line under the rim lip so I knew the tire wasn't sitting properly on the wheel. Until I left it pressured up for an hour. Now the raised line is equal to the rim all around the wheel on both sides so I called it good. Never did get the bead to seat.

I think the problem is these are tubeless tires so they have a different bead. They are OK to run tubes so just something we have to live with.

I had a Metzeler laser onthe front of my GS that was leaking all around the bead. Slow leak. Had to put air in every 4 or 5 days. So I popped it off and cleaned the bead. Put it back on and couldn't get the bead to seat no matter what I did. Took it to a local shop and the guy took it in the back and came back 5 minutes later with it seated.

Yeah, but his GS has tubeless wheels.

Set on my 07 vstrom no problems mounting or balancing . Work great on pavement wet or dry . Handles gravel very well with a small amount of "hunting" on the front. Better turn in than the trailwings , stable at all angles and speeds. Running 36 ft and 40 rear.

4000 mile pavement report; Anakee 3 on front and Anakee 2 on rear. Both are H rated. The Anakee 2 is a known commodity so not much to say. 34# front, 38# rear, loaded for touring/camping. I was very pleased with the performance and feel, turn in, etc. No squaring at all, the opposite actually.

An idea of roads I used, in order (I was videoing twisty bits this trip with the GoPro): Teton Pass, Flaming Gorge, pass down into Vernal UT, pass down into Fruita CO, Rimrock drive in Colorado National Monument, Million Dollar Highway, twisty road in Mesa Verde NP, Highway 64 across NM, flats across KS and the 91 and 19 in MO, Interstate (yuck), 295 and 20 across Nebraska, 87, 16A, and 14A in the Black Hills (waited and timed to minimize car chicanes), and then 16 across WY to home. As much twisty as I could fit in considering. And I did have the wick turned up a little for videoing

Not sure what is happening but the pics will show. It is like there is a harder compound in the center and is wearing very slowly compared to the sides. Any ideas?

That looks like how my buddy's dual sport touring tires wear on his FJR1300. Are they dual compound ?
Edit: lol I'm so used to talking about dual sport stuff I wrote that when I meant to say super sport.

I think they are dual compound but there is no literature that says so.

I noticed the same wear pattern on my front yesterday. I have 3500 miles on mine.
