    Decided it was time for some different/new rubber:



    First a slightly used Front tire from Bryan; $40 Clist:





    Then the new rear tire from Motorcycle Superstore; $89.99 free shipping:









    Will post pictures of them mounted soon.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Rear Tire --







    Front Tire







    Looks like you simply replaced the worn tires with the same make/model? Just curious why you didn't try something else?

    I am with truelight. I dont think the rear tire is that bad but I will definitely be getting a different front tire when money permits. Seems like its between a kenda or shinko. Any other front tire options I should know about?
    '13 690 Enduro R too many frickin farkles...
    '07 KLX250 farkled (wife's bike)
    '86 BW80 farkled to size
    '10 TW200 you will be missed

    Guess that depends on what kind of riding you do. I do about 70% street and 30% off-road, (primarily gravel and dirt roads). I recently put a Kenda K270 on the front and there is a -world- of difference. Admiral, who I ride with often, put a Shinko "Golden Boy" on his TW and it very similar to the Kenda. It looks and performs much the same and if you can find one, is generally a few bucks less.



    Now, if you stay on the street, you may want to ask others here what would be a good front tire for that.



    The rear tire of the TW is such an oddball size that your options are much more limited.

    Looking at the wear on the rear it looks like you are mostly on the pavement. A tire in the dirt would have round edges worn on the blocks. It is well know to those of us that have them that the stock front tire makes an unpleasant noise on paved surfaces and is not the best in the dirt either so for $40 you could have done better. We ride them since they were on the bike and refuse to wear out.

    I do mainly 90% street and 10% off-road "dirt and fields working cattle and trails". I have the shinko sr428s that I got from MC superstore for about $150 (free shipping on orders over $90 and toke three days to get). They work great on pavement with little to no vibration, running recommended PSI. The only issue so far is if the trail is muddy or a little wet it takes a little more speed to go log jumping.
