Anyone have pics of their DRZ with a Terraflex on?

Recommended Posts

I know it's supposed to be for "bigger" bikes but I also know some people happily run them on the DRZ.

The ability to run it flat appeals to me in the remote places I travel. Is there enough clearance between the swingarm and tire to run flat on a DRZ though???

No pics but I ran the smaller one and it hooked up very well. The knobs chunked up very quickly and the tire was pretty much spent in about 1200mi.

Here's a pic or two of the terraflex on mine. It's the black DRZ. Oddly of all those pics I don't have any closeups. You could dig through the album to see more pics of the Z with the terraflex on it.

I wouldn't count on riding it flat though. I used to ride with about 3 psi in mine all the time with ultra heavy duty tubes and only had one flat in several years. Awesome traction at 3 psi. It sucked when it was flat though. Like riding on ice.

Check your gearing. the terror is a huge tire and you'll need more torque to get it rolling and it takes a lot more brake to stop it. I went to 14/47. I am in florida and ride in a lot of sugar sand and I'm using the bar mounted rear brake.

Search the posts, some claim the new "improved" tflex sucks compared to those made a couple of years ago. Ive got 1000mi on mine (1/2 years old) and it still looks new, almost no wear on the knobs.

Thanks, everyone. I decided that wasn't the tire for me and purchased a Pirelli MT43 instead.

On another note, Zgrant231, is that an IMS or Clark tank on your bike?
