Once on, though, no problems.
Thanks PM! I will be ordering one soon!

Cheers

Curious what kind of mileage ppl are getting out of Anakees. My rear hit the wear bar at 26,000km which seems exceptionally good. Is this normal or was my bike shipped with magic tires?

Uggghhhhh!!!!! This tire situation is maddening!

Loved my Michelin Deserts. Discontinued.

Read the entire thread for the last two hours. Decide on the Mitas e09 Dakars. Out of stock at the two sites listed in the thread.

Does anyone know where there are any rear Michelin Deserts left 140/80/17 or the Mitas e09 Dakars in stock?

Any help would be appreciated before I have to go out in the garage and beat that stupid 17" rim into oblivion. I shouldn't have three hours wrapped up in trying to find a decent knobby for my bike.

Once you decide to change that 4.25" rim to something "normal", your life will become much easier.

Not sure how they're gonna work out, but for $55 each from Motorcycle Superstore I decided to give the Michelin T63's a try. The rear is a 130/80/17.

Anybody have feedback on these?

Rim is too wide. Recommended width is 3".
I'm sure you could make it work, but it seems to simply be the wrong tire to me.

So what is the right tire John? Is it in stock? Did you buy a thinner 17" rim or just get an 18"?

I'm very aware that the size is not ideal. Nothing about the rear wheel is ideal. I'm all about adding things to personalize the bike for the way I want to use it, but I shouldn't have to buy a new rim.

Seems that I'm not the only one running the 130/80/17. See Packmule's post above. It's my understanding that people are also running the Dunlop 606 in a 130/90/17 size with some sucess.

The front came yesterday Anakakee 1, here it is next to the old one:



The old tires have 6,684 miles on them. Mostly backroads but did have one large day of slab when scheduling forced a NH to NC push on return leg of ATL to Nova Scotia loop.

Tread wear is pretty even - has .10" left



Out of the box A1 has .20" of tread.

(and yes - I'll pay attention to rotation when I go to mount )



I'm thinking of running existing another 1-2k.

Here's the rear - it's an A1 as I wasn't able to get an A2 in time for trip. Have an A2 on order for replacement should be here next week.

Those tires really look excellent for 6600 miles. It appears this is good for 8000 miles with your riding conditions. Do you have the V or H speed rating on your mounted tires? I believe the V rated would wear a bit faster.

When all was said and done I bought a Mitas for the rear and a Conti Tkc for the front. I really wanted the Hedis but I find their pricing un-reasonable.
the tires after the install...I know how we love pictures!! The bike feels a least 1" taller.

130/90 17 dunlop d606

Here's some pics of the 13/90 17 rear fitted to the stock rim, it replaces a mitas dakar e09 which I got 12,000km out of. I didn't like the e09 front, currently running a d606 on the front too and like it a lot. I've only done about 30km on the new rear but it feels a lot more planted then the mitas. A big plus for the d606 is they cost about $220 for the front and rear.

I'm running a set set of 606's as well. They are getting noisy fast on the pavement above 50 mph or so.

How fast are you finding the knobs rounding off? I chewed the leading edges off a Karoo in an afternoon on packed gravel. The Mitas is holding it's own much better in that regard. I used to run a 606 on the smaller bikes and it was great, but figured it wouldn't hold up to the ponies of the bigger twins...
