Dual sport tyres

Well as I have posted on a previous topic I was going to fit dual sport / adventure tyres on the TTR, will keep MT21's on the WRR for the rough tracks, going to keep the TTR for dirt /gravel roads.

Had a delivery from postman Pat today, so on a 39-40c day I changed both tyres, not sure about the front but I guess I will find out, looks a bit like the Bridgestone deathwings, never liked the MT21's on the TTR ( love them on the WRR ) also tried D606's & D605 & D603's

Anyhow a couple of photos

They look the part. Funny how the front looks more knobbly when on the rim, to me at least. Keep us posted on the performance.
Handsome bike by the way. I hadn't noticed the black frame before. Breaks up the blue nicely.

 Cheers, the TTR is not bad for 20,000kms well 19,820kms close enough, they listed the tyres as Adventure or for large Adventure bikes but with the sizing of 120-80 x 18 & 90-90 x 21 to me would not be an adventure bike.

Bought it new in 2013 & has be ridden hard, ok perhaps not hard, was going to sell in 2016 with 14k but no one came up with the coin so the WRR has 18500kms on the clock.

Love both my Yamaha's can't go past them, no failures at all, just heaps of tyres, 3 x sets of chains & sprockets on the WRR & 2 sets on the TTR,  air cleaners, oil & filters...thats it

Terry

New tyres look good, I'm interesting in seeing how they handle on the blacktop?

Hi Terry

How are the tyres doing? I am looking for some more road biased tyres, that would still be capable doing a bit off roading. Yours looked good, have they lasted well on the road and perform good enough?

Want to run standard gearing and your type of tyres on the 350 for a whilesmile

 Good on road & hard gravel roads, not so good on loose gravel as the front gets a little loose.  The black top is not a problem at all, perhaps I push it too hard on the loose gravel or expect too much.

Steve you would be happy with them on road but mud could be an issue !!!!

There will never be a tyre that does everything and I am looking for set mainly for the road, but when pointed to some of road stuff will cope with a bit of varied surfaces.

 You would be ok on road with the ability to take a dirt or gravel road

I have only used the mt21 front but could ride aggressively on a f650gs dakar and ttr250 on and off road. Wear rate was decent too!
