Something was wrong with that tire.

I've thrashed these Desert IT's in every rideable situation and they hold up better than most that provide that level of traction, rideability, and stability.


Maybe there's a chance you guys get a diff rubber compound.

Ya Shibs, my thought also. Mind, all Maxxis's are imported, no idea where from. Was hard to get sortof too, and was not on the product list for starters. Oh well, the joys of living Dark Under I suppose

Reviews on the EXP have all been very positive.
Where are you?

I picked one up this year. I had a little trouble getting it dialed in. I think I didnt let it break in long enough and had to adjust it a few times but it is working nicely now. stock clutch function when you want and auto clutch when you need it.

I'm with shibby on this one.

I run that Maxxis Desert IT on my KX500 desert bike because of its wear results . It does not chunk, and wears like iron. My riding style with the KX500 is totally different than my XR too, its all wheel spin all the time. If its gonna chunk on any bike, its gonna be on a KX500.

I'm running the Z-start version, which is no longer available for the XRR. I prefer it because I like to not run a clutch lever, just the rear brake. The EXP doesn't work without the clutch lever, doesn't really release as much as the Z-start, I tried on my Christini. You also lose a certain amount of clutch surface with the EXP, so it isn't recommended for hot motors or Supermoto, which seems strange they would even offer it for the XRR?

Can I remove the push cable from the carby and just run with the pull cable and use the huge spring on the carby to return the throttle instead?
Is there any real need for the second cable?

I wouldn't do that if I were you. That push cable is a nice safety feature:

Keep the two two cables in there, they were put there for a reason!
Not being mean, and I do it also, but why do us as armchair mechanics always want to change what 30 or so engineers designed for a reason.....
There are a bunch of things we do to our XR's to make them work for a D/S vs. a racing machine.....
Have a good day

I've thought about pulling a lot of things off of my bike, but the return cable is not one of them.

I've had my throttle cable hang up on my harley, lucky it was on the freeway, but its not something i'd want to have happen on the XR. I could easily reach down and close the butterfly manually on the harley, no chance of that happening on the XR.
