Tyres - make and sizes?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I've got a 2005 DRZ400E with supermoto wheels on which the previous owner fitted Dunlop Arrowmax's (140 rear). They are probably the worst road tyre I've used. It skips out in the dry (when you're in a hurry :thumbsup:) and is horrendous in the wet.

I fancy Pilot Powers or Power Pures, but which sizes fit into the swingarm comfortably? And what profile is best for the front?

Opinions gratefully received.

Out of interest, is the DRZ known to be twitchy or could the fact that the previous owner fitted shorter dogbones be causing the handling issue? After riding a few mate's KTM's and WR's, the DRZ feels like the forks are dead upright! You get used to it, but the handling has nothing on the other bikes.

I just ran through a set of pures in about 2k miles. Really nice feel and I didn't get chain rub w a 160 rear.
