anyone who tried them, please chime in.......
Nice pics everyone. I was dying to be there but... You know the story... WORK...
I have been running Motoz, front and rear, for about 1,300 miles now and here is what I think:
They are LOUD. Sometimes I can't even hear my Akra's at low RPM (without baffles)
They were really good until 500 miles for me, on and off road.
But lately rear tire seems to slide a lot on dirt. And I dont think I can get more than 2,500 miles on the rear.
Overall they are pretty good on dirt but VERY LOUD and sketchy on pavement. I rather ride on 606+908 but Motoz set is cheaper than a 908 rear. Sooo.....

Yes the MotoZ is very loud on road. However, I feel that the front is at least a 3500 mile tire (if you are not too hard on the brakes on tarmac) and the rear is at least a 2500 mile tire (probably 3k). By comparison I used to get 1500-2000 miles out of a rear 908.

I ran as low as 18psi front and 15psi rear with the loaded SE. They seem to like slightly lower pressures than the 606/908... I found 25-27psi to be a good mixed terrain pressure. I ran mid-30s for the tarmac ride home which help a bit with the noise... but only a little.

We had one SE in our group with the 606/908 combo and mine with the MotoZ... in deep, slick mud the MotoZ was much better than the Dunlops.

Also, the SE has a narrower rear rim than the Adventure and I don't think the MotoZ is available in a 150 (yet) so that may effect the mileage.

2100 (mostly dirt) miles later...

Yes the rear is a bit squared off due to the last day on tarmac




Front looks great:




FWIW: I had two days of almost entirely dirt and I ran 16-17psi rear; 18-19psi front, the traction was really spectacular (wet, loose, rocky conditions). I then went up to 24-25 rear; 25-26 front for a couple days of slightly faster conditions and a bit more tarmac, traction was still fantastic.

I think that's my problem. I keep them at or over 30psi at all times. I had enough pinch flats so I don't air down most of the times. But I also heard (from Lior) that airing down helps alot.
And I also agree, front tire still looks new after 1,300 miles. For the price, I think they are a better buy than 606/908 combo.

On the small bike, the best combo I've found is MX71 front/MT43 rear. On the 640 MX71 front/606 rear.
I haven't tried the MotoZ yet....

Speaking of the MX71, I usually run the MX51 on the 310 until the most recent bead disaster. Trying one of these next... http://www.dunlopmotorcycle.com/tire...t81-desert-rc/

"Higher levels of ruggedness" = probably a PITA to change!

Yeah I ran the MX51 up front but it shed knobs in the rocks. The MX71 is a much tougher tire. Great on or off road tread wear. Non DOT but who's checking? That AT 81 looks good, might have to try a set.

I also just test new set of MOTOZ on my 990 adv maybe im not good examples because I used them more on the street and little over the speed limit they last for me same as 606/908 around 2000 and I push to get more miles they are loud specially when new
on dirt when new with 25psi front 27 rear they grip very good overall good tire for the money and if you used mostly on dirt
for me now 606 on front is the best choice and I will keep play with rear
