I run mine a bit higher on the road. 38 in the rear and 36 front. I air down to 25 or so in the dirt although I'm not really sure it makes a difference and may expose the rims to being dinged. Next time I'm in the dirt I'm gonna ride a bit with them at the street pressures and then air down and see if I notice a difference.

Mine work well off road and on - can't tell any difference between them and a TKC shod F8GS I rode recently in the dirt. On road they seem quit pleasant with decent grip, including a bit of rain riding. No complaints Approx 500 miles on them 70% on road and 30% off road.

Just some info for Canadian riders interested in the K60...there is a supplier here in BC...MTR Sports who is selling these tires at par with the USA and Rob charges no duty....check out the email he just sent that 3 of my 4 tires are in...take a look at the prices! The sizes are for the F650GS

Good evening Leslie;
Great news, I have 3 of your tires here.
The fellow that mounts tires has decided that he does not want to mount tires on rims that are painted or might scratch. (only dirt bikes I guess)

Richmond Motorsports used to charge $25.00 per tire, cash to the mechanic if the rims are off the bike.

Description Cost Qty MTR SPORTS
Heidenau Front 110/80-19
$ 139.00
2
$ 278.00
Heidenau Rear 140/80-17
$ 155.00
1
$ 155.00
Enviro Fee
$ 5.00
3
$ 15.00
Subtotal


$ 448.00
Taxes


$ 53.76
Amount Owing


$ 501.76


MTR SPORTS accepts Visa, MasterCard, Cheque or Cash

I've got K60's on my XR650L. Mounted at 5000 Km's. Now at 9500 Km's with very little wear on rear tire. Front still looks new. Run between 30-35 psi. Got them from Heindl Engineering in Ohio. Seems they were around $200 for the pair. Very stable. Don't think airing down has much effect. Very tough sidewalls, not alot of flex. Had a hard time mounting them.

You think you had a hard time mounting them, imagine fixing a flat on the trail. When it happened to me, I was lucky that one of the dudes had a bead breaker with him. I have now added a bead breaker to my tire kit.

As far as I can tell, that's the only downside to these tires.

Yah, I don't think it's the tires, so much as that f-ing safety bead on the rear rim that makes it a total PITA. The front is no big deal by comparison.

After the puncture, continue to ride it for a bit. It should come off the bead.

That is exactly what I did on Saturday I had slowed to about 70mph when the rear got sideways. By the time I got her stopped the tire was very easy to change.
