DRZ400E dual sport tires

Recommended Posts

I'm running Dunlop D606 tires on my street legal DRZ400E.

I ride on the street and dirt roads. Rarely do I go on dirt trails.

I would like tires that are more comfortable on the street.

Suggestions?

Kenda makes a K270 ... runs well on the street and still provides some off pavement capability. Any serious off road will quickly expose the tires limitations.

Avon distansas get good reviews here and are considered gravel road OK. Last time I looked they came in 18/21 as well.

When you say trail wings do you mean death wings? Those things were the worst.

Trail Wings blow in the mud, but for general around town street/gravel road blatting they are more than fine (and they make excellent winter beater tires).

Kenda 270's are an excellent all arounder.

try Bridgestone trailwings 301 and 302. I really like them. I ride 90 percent street but wanted something that will work in the dirt. They don't work in deep sand, but mud is okay.

michelin ac10's on mine, so far so good. Been pretty good on street (even in wet - but i was taking it seriously steady). On hard pack they're pretty good, grips like hell in dusty mud, and does me well if its wet mud. Happy all round really.

I've got a set of Trail Wings on my S model and they work great on anything besides mud or deep sand. On an asphalt road, gravel roads, loose rocky conditions or dry hard pack anything their fine, their smooth and have plenty of edge for most corners. They can be ridden in sand or mud but you will have to slow down.

Get the distanzias, the k270 is too squirrely and loud for 90/10 riding.

I got Warp 9 Wheels w/distanzia tires on my 03 E (plated) and will probably never put the dirt wheels back on...way too much street fun and bike is a bit heavy for dirt anyway. I too have a 03 DL1000 and rotate between the 2 bikes.

I just ordered a pair of cheapO Shinkos 700s for mine, to try out. For $104 if I do not like them I can replace without feeling too much of a loss.
