Michelin Anakee 3
« on: October 15, 2014, 02:08:22 PM »
I have a set of Michelin Anakee 3 tyres on my bike and between 65 and 75 kph they make  a loud howl noise at first I thought the gearbox was stuffed but the bike has only 2500ks on it the tyres have done about 1000ks, it is definitely the rear  tyre.

You're a sensitive lot! :001:

Never noticed on my III's and I'm on my 2nd rear boot. All I hear howlin' is that V4!  :305:

Been very pleased with the mileage compared to the OE Scorps (although the wear on them the now is horrible, lost my cornering mojo) but I fancy a change and no big bike tour next year I will be treating it to a pure road tyre, soft as you like.

I have strongly been considering the Anakee 3 as I'm yet to see a bad review on grip and tyre life however the 2 things stopping me has been the reported noise and these tyres square-off badly making filtering and corners an absolute pig to live with... I'm not here to slate any specific tyre but the pr3 has nearly no tread left (will be changed next week) but it's still as curved as-if it was new however I believe the ankee will give more mileage.
Tomorrow is promised to no one...

Faraway,

 Don't let my comments about wear put you off. The way they have worn is purely my fault not some oddity about the tyre. 

 We all know a set of new boots is the best thing you can do to your bike. Be March/April for me now though. :003:

I've not really noticed any extra noise on my A3's, but then again I ram my earplugs so far in ,that I nearly need tweezers to get them out  :087:

Mine have done over 3k, and seem barely half worn, with little sign of them squaring off as yet. Happy chappy  :152:

I will need to convince myself the Anakee 3 is the way forward and will do just that in spring. On the squaring off thing ( and just by chance) as an example. The old pr3 has 8.8k on and somehow needs to do another 400 by week friday but as for the squaring off, not to bad...I do do a lot of straight line riding so not to bad..
Tomorrow is promised to no one...
