TKC 80 questions

Recommended Posts

I'm about to order front and rear TKC 80s for my DR650 from American Motorcycle Tire.

90/90S-21

130/80T-17

My question is regarding the rear sizing. 130/80T-17 appears to be the closest available to Suzuki's called out 120/90-17, is this OK and what people are running on their DRs?

Also, has anyone had any problems with American Motorcycle Tire?

I'm running with the sizes quoted above and have no issues to report. Sorry, I can't help you with the supplier. However, please be aware these tires are for moderate trail use only. A few weeks ago, I had the experience of trying new TKCs in very wet, rutty, muddy and swampy conditions and I must say traction was equivalent to running bald tires over a frozen lake. If you choose to accept this challenge, you will need to be in tip top riding form.

This being said, these tires do really well on pavement.

I just purchased a set of CHENG SHIN tires from them. No problems at all. It took 4 days standard shipping from Arizona to Illinois.
