That's my intention, but they don't offer a 140

They have a 4.10 and a 120 rear and 90/90 front

The 120 is a bit small on the 630. Buddy has a 17 on his DR and it looks skinny.
Consider Heideneau K60, right sizes, great wear, good on and off pavement. The new K76 is more road oriented, gets good reports for 80/20.

Looks like they dont have the sizes I need a 90/90x21 and a 140/80x18

Open to any suggestions. Like the Shinko 705's but not sure on the 4.10 and 120 sizing.

I have a 140 K60 and a 90/90 TKC80 on the road wheels for the 610.
The K60 is a good tire but needs to be inflated to 32psi or more to keep from chunking, so airing down isn't an option and it seems to be wearing a little faster than I'd hoped. Not sure I'll get another one.
Generally I like a tire for the rear that is a little smaller than the 140 Karroo, helps turning on single track.

I can only have one bike, at this time, and the 630 seems to fit my needs well. The problem is now selling the GSA and finding one. There was one somewhat locally that was picked up before I could get there.
Wish I lived closer to GA. I'm interested in trading my 630 for a GS or GSA

A few weeks ago I rode in the APC Rally on my 630. The APC is a 7,500km rally through the Eastern States of Australia. The rally runs over a two week period and is unsupported. You just follow the GPS track that the organiser issues. Here's a link to my Spot diary of the event:

http://www.findmespot.com/spotadvent...?tripid=322671

I couldn't imagine a better bike than the 630 for this event. It's big enough to handle the open roads and to carry the luggage required, but still enough of a dirt bike to handle the tight tracks without beating you to death.



I have to say a big thanks to all of the people on this site. I got a massive amount of setup info from the site and it made the job a lot easier. Here's a list of the mods that I made, in no particular order:
  • Subframe strengthened as per CJ Brown's brackets;
  • FMF Q4 fitted in place of the twin pipes;
  • JD Tuner fitted;
  • Airbox opened up and fitted with an EHS Racing breather;
  • 30mm bar risers;
  • Hex head front axle nut;
  • Removed the rear licence plate holder;
  • Ballard's footpeg wideners fitted to stock pegs;
  • KTM 690 screen;
  • Tool tube fabricated from 100mm water pipe;
  • Safari tank;
  • Husky rack and bashplate (The Husky bashplate is stuffed now - going to get a Hyde one to replace it);
  • Antigravity battery; and
  • Seat Concepts seat.
Seriously, this is a great bike. I had a few little problems but I can't think of a better bike for a combination of long haul travel and technical dirt riding. All it needs now is an oil change and a new bashplate and I could do it all again. The only major issue that I had was keeping rear tyres up to it - I went through 5 in two weeks.

FIVE tires??? Holy crikies!

Glad it worked good for you. I still think it's the best damn dualsport in the world.

Anyone in So Cal interested in a 630? I'll be putting mine up for sale pretty quick.
She runs like a top and has all the goodies and more. Just over 300 hours and 8500ish miles.
PM is best.

Well done on the a pc

Not sure how the hyde bashplate is held on.I've been running a force one,aussie made.It's held on by one bolt making oil changes a breeze.Locks in place nice too and offers great protection.
