OEM rubber
« on: August 20, 2012, 02:59:31 PM »
Hi , my pirelli original rubber are lasting very well and are now just starting to flatten off after 7000km. i initially thought they were harsh and transmitting vibes up through the bike but after checking the suspension settings on reading posts on here i found it wound up much higher than factory settings and after returning to correct settings they now feel much more compliant. I have a set of Dunlop Roadsmart 1 on standby and have found them brilliant on a previous Trailie so looking forward to them but as i say i can't knock the OEM's :008:

will do Grahew,i have a source for dunlops and got their Trailmax (previous to the TR91) for my KLR650 and find them good for this power of bike, i assume the TR91 are uprated and V rated as the old model would be creaking under the torque of the CT, i will check the TR91 out on Dunlops site.As i said if you want a more road tyre try the Roadsmart, talk about grip!super confidence. cheers
