On my hp2 I ran TKCs at 2.0 bars front and 2.2 bars for the rear. I was getting 12000 kilometers tyre life and they worked well for me.

Good info as I am going to have the dealer swap to TKC's before I pick up the bike. That will keep the Trail Attacks fresh to be put on for the next long road trip.

Interesting.. I've always ran the recommended pressure on road, but then air down to about 20 in the front and 16-17 in the rear for mud n gravel..

If i ran that kind of pressures i would fuck up my wheels pretty quick.

Speaking of of f-ing the rims... what is going on with this bending of rims? Have seen mention of weak rims half a dozen times. Also the 1190 R in the Touratech USA showroom has a bent rim. It is on well worn TKC's.

Is their a weakness? What is different with these and other KTM rims? My Berg has Excel and all the KTM's For dirt I know of.

The Adv wheel 21 is too wide for real off road work....add to it the incredibly soft sidewall of the TKC....voila bent rim...

need a thinner rim....or try with a beefer tire...908rr, 606 or Scorp Rally

Google BMW HP2, very cool bike from ze germans. Came in a few different iterations including an HP2 Enduro, Megamoto and Sport...there could have been others as well I missed. I saw my first HP4 on the road this morning actually...looks like a S1000R with new paint, but what do I know

yeha depends on the tyre sidewalls.. if you run something like the mitas Dakar E-09's the sidewalls are superthick and will take alot of the impact for you.. something softer you might need to run a higher pressure but its whatever works for you/your setup

12000 km's? out of even the rear? I hear these numbers from people but I am truly amazed that it would be even possible, even if you never ever spun the back wheel..

Thanks and I have a lot of experience with 606, one set of Scorp and none with 908rr. None with TKC yet though consensus says TKC is best of these in the wet. I do live in Seattle so there's that. The bent rim on the Touratec one was with a TKC. So hmmm… I am going to have to experiment with the front when I get the bike I guess.

Another thing to remember is the 1190 is set up for tubeless tires. TKC 80 is tubeless, 606 etc may not be. Idealy I'd like to get a second set of rims set up for off road with tubed tires. Time will tell if this happens....still waiting for the bike to be delivered.

this is what I am thinking as well. Running knobbies on the road sucks, and running road tires in the dirt is scary. Intermediate tires are generally pretty shit everywhere so the only solution is to change tires all the time or get a second wheelset....let the saving begin.
