Will A Heidenau K60 150/70 B 18 Fit A 950 SE

Will a 150/70B 18 fit a 950 SE?

Just bought a bike and it has knobbys so need to change out the rear for something that will do better distance.

Anyone run these or some other good milage adv style tire, many thanks Andi

Heidi K60 140/80/18 fits the SE rims perfectly well
I've got an Avon Roadrider 150/70 now and its a little too wide but ok at "normal" speeds

Ok, we will be two up so want the width for the soft stuff, so the 150 fits in width wise? according to pics it should.

Yeah appreciate that but two up changes it a little and it should be slightly better on the soft stuff, we are not doing warp factor two so it won't cause us issues with handling.

Fixed....

That's the right tool for the tire you want to use, and the job !

Me and my buddy just mounted 150 Hidenau's on our Super Enduro's. I think they look great. I've had people say blah blah blah that tire is for the 4"+ rim 990. I like the fat tire for the 950 plus it has that constant tread line that should make it last longer than the 140. I would have got a 160 if they made it.

I guess that's what you'll be running this weekend? I'll have to mount something up Saturday. Should be fun but a good chance to look over the bike again.

No,I just had ACME mount up some knobbies and took my suspension to Brett B. Also took off the rack, mirrors, gps, etc. I'll put the Hidenaus back on Monday.



Dual Sport Warehouse had them in stock for $172.99 www.dualsportwarehouse.com click on Hidenau tires

Revzilla seems to be the best price I have found.

Try SW mototire in Tucson. Their site doesn't show the Heidenau but I'd be surprised they didn't have any due to popularity.

I hope you're primarily on dirt roads. I'm not a big fan of the MT21 on paved roads. I had one on my DR650 and it was very twitchy in turns. Different bike w/ different loads, perhaps it'll be better for you. YMMV

It's a great tire, the K60. That's uncontroversial. :)

On a "lightened" 950 ADV with just 22kg of gear I have 11,500 miles on one with an 1/8" to the wear bar on a 140/80 on a 2.5" rear rim.
