Someone out there needs to try the Metzeler Karoo 3. An accomplished rider I know used one on a 1200GS WC and he said it worked great but made the bike tough to get the rear end to kick out on fire roads as it has a "self-centering" quality. I think the HP of the 1190 might challenge that? They also seem to be readily available in 150/70-18 TL here in the USA.

Solution/ run the tubed tires

I just learned from a KTM USA exec that they ran tubeless TKC 80's on the test mule R when they did the desert foto shoot used in their displays and marketing.

It was explained that the difference between tube and tube-less dual-sport tires spec'd for our dual-sport bikes is a thin liner put in at the tire factory (vulcanized, glued, heated?) that is designed to reduce air loss on the tubeless wheels.

I was told the tube tires KTM ran leaked just a little bit under hard use during 30 days of testing.

I have a set of new Heidi's in the garage and I don't think they are TL or tubeless. But I plan to run them anyway and monitor tire pressure.

Obviously you will need to pay close attention to the speed rating of any tube tire you choose.

I don't care as much about the rear with the d606. The front is where my evil plans lay.

I never liked the K60 FRONT off road (mostly gravel roads), on my old wee strom. It whined like crazy on pavement too.

I think the rear K60 is good. I would run one of those with a TKC on the front, and probably will, after I wear out the rear TKC that I got the dealer to throw in on the deal

not for nothing but the 1190R has the same size tires as the 990's
My dealer just got back from KTM training, and I was told, run tubes if you were going to do offroad riding. Cause if you bend the rim it could lose air.

I was running TKC on the front and a MFEO on the back of my 990, used the beads in the front and it stopped the scalloping of the front tire.
Plan the similar tire plan on the 1190R see how it works in the spring

I believe the hub/axle size is different.

BTW, if anyone wants a set of the original Continental TrailAttack2's, I'm selling the take-offs with 100 miles on them in the FleaMarket. See Here:

Yep, I am going Mitas too.

Check out the new 4 ply E07 option:

Mitas E-10 Dual Sport Front Tire TL
Mitas E-07 DAKAR Rear Tire 150/70-18 TL DOT

http://www.mx1canada.com/mitas-e07-d...150-70-18.html

I started to worry about bending rims with the TKC 80. This reads as deep tread, stiff sidewall so lets see what the MSC can do with that. I have no idea what the compound is like but we shall see.

The E09 like Toors has looks good for off-road but the E07 seems like it would be better in our rain on the roads.

I ran the E-07s on my Super Tenere and they were fantastic tires. I'm heartbroken that they don't make the front 21 in tubeless though!!

Not sure what I want to pair the rear E07 with yet... I don't want to go knobby as most of my riding is street, and I enjoy carving corners. Possibly match it with the front Heidenau K60? I'm kinda nervous mixing brands though.

I've mixed front/rear several times, on other bikes, with no issues.

FWIW, I put a 140 on my wee Strom (takes a 150), and it squared off horribly. Never again!

Thanks for the input. I was considering it only because it doesn't have the solid center like the 150 size.
