I should clarify that they are not illegal to use here depending on where you live. If you live here, you can't run them. If you live a few hours north or in any of the adjacent provinces, you're good. I suppose I could bypass it by becoming friendly with someone north and change the address on my license to theirs but that's more hassle than I'm willing to go through.

They might look at it more closely. If they do, I'll pay the fine and limit my riding to off road or at least less patrolled areas.

We just started studding today. A friend of mine is a veteran Num Bum 24 hour racer, and he recommended running a Cheng Shin C755. Super cheap tire, but he says it awesome because it doesn't chunk like a lot of other MX tires. He runs 4 of the long screws through each knob, and into another cut up street tire lining the inside. They also had a box of the shorter ice screws, so I bought them and we set to it. The first set is going on this guy's 530. We are just going to be screwing around on a nice big pond where he works.



350 ice screws. We can't wait to try them!

I plan to stud up a set of Dunlop 606s for my KLR this winter. Does anyone have any experience with the Aerostich studs and these tires?

I have them.

I built an ice bike from a Yama 250 a couple years ago. These studs work great. Easy to install and not one ripped out. I don't ride it off ice and I put a drop of crazy glue on each one during the install just in case. Highly recommended.

Good to know, thanks! I've also used a drop of Gorilla Glue when I put ice screws in, and it helps a lot to keep them in place.

I've got a full winter with the Aerostich studs.





New Dunlop 606s all studded up.



They did work very well after adding a few more in the front tire.

My question is what to do now. Do folks simply remove these until the next winter or keep these tires as "winter" tires and order up a new set. I'm not sure how well the bit will bite these for the removal/install. They are obviously ground down some since the start of the winter.

I use the off-road studs. I leave them in the tires, and consider them my 'winter tires'. I've used them about 6 seasons now and have never lost one.
I would like to stud up a set for the DRZ to be used on-road. Can you tell me what size studs you used? I know there are a number of sizes to choose from, and would like some input. Thanks.....jkm

I went with 200 of these:

#4706 Low Profile A (8.7 x 12.4mm, Base penetrates tire 10.5mm, tip protrudes from tire 1.9mm

I need a few more in the rear and I would likely go with the 4707 in the rear if I was to do it over again. I just need to decide what to do with them now. Either leave them in for a winter tire or remove them.

Just in case anyone is interested.

After a fairly aggressive run with a bit of spinning yesterday covering everything from dry pavement to ice to snow to dry dirt road to mud I seem to have lost two studs in the back tire. Two more were getting loose.

Tonight I removed all remaining studs from the rear and replaced the front tire. My plan is to keep the studded front as my winter tire and re-stud a new 606 rear when the time comes. The studs came out pretty much as easy as they went in.

Just finished studding up a new Dunlop 606 but used 4707 in the rear this time. The same front with 4706s. Hope to get out this weekend and try it out.

Grip Studs Screw-In Tire Studs

I was looking for boot studs because I cross a lot of snow covered rocks where I hunt and I cam across these. I don't know if they are the manufacturer, but they do offer tons of sizes. They even have a detail link by each stud that shows the height and depth of each type.

http://www.gripstuds.com/Motorcycle_..._Dirt_Bike.php

I'm going to use the shortest ones in my boot soles. I'm too old to fall hard!

Hope this helps someone somewhere in the world.
