    I ordered a new front tire yesterday, the Kenda K760-110/100, As Ron in Boise has one on his bike and seems to keep the shiny side up most the time, I thought I would give it a try. The current stock tire seems to try and slide out from underneath me on hard packed sand with a coating of loose sand on top of that. On trails I cannot lean the bike into a corner without the front of the bike sliding. Hopefully this will help. The tire is rated for 80% off road and 20% on road. It is an aggressive knobby and DOT approved for the street. The tire is coming out of Texas and will be here in Idaho in about three days. It was $75.00 at Moto-Tech. They will mount it for $15.00 if I take the loose wheel to them.

    Dan, I am looking at the same tire, for the same reasons. I'm virtually never on pavement anyway.



    Remember to weight that outide peg when your turning in.

    Hard packed sandy logging roads will still be tricky, even with lower tire psi. and the Kenda, but your gonna like it waaay better than the stock tire. I can almost see the smile on your face already when you try it out!

    I have a K760 with a 120 cross section and love it offroad. Wanders all over in a straight line, initially slides out when entering a turn, but once those buttressed knobs along the edges of the tread dig in, its on rails. I expect with your narrower size that there will be some difference in handling. Anything beats the stock tire.

    Good choice. It sure works for me. The last time I was out riding I did a few experiments with it. I let it climb up out the side of deep erosion ruts. I had to hit them at a 45 degree angle so I just let the bike roll through unpowered and when the front tire hooked up and climbed out I gave it a little gas and the back end followed the front right up out of the rut.



    Stumpy called last night and he says he is coming over for Thursday. Truelight has said he might be able to make it also. The weather is supposed to be great and with the rain last night, The dust should be settled. This ride should be a good run for your brother as I don't think there will be any goat trails. Call me and we can set up a time. When we decide, I will call Stumpy and let him know.



    Happy Trails All

    Hey guys, Hello from Western Washington. I thought I would share the best tip I ever got for off road cornering confidence. I am running a stock front tire that I knobby knifed fresh sharp edges on. It certainly helped out but that is not the riding tip. I plan to run that tire as soon as I can afford it! In the mean time this will help. A super fast guy I know told me his "crack to crack" rule....



    there is 3 cracks involved, the one on the left side of your seat (corner actually) the one on the right side of your seat and your very own crack that resides in between your butt cheeks.



    Left Turn = your crack on right crack (seat side corner)

    Right turn = your crack on left crack

    going straight = cheeks on crack!



    Once I actually moved my arse over on the seat it changed me forever. With the angle you put on the bike underneath you, your center of gravity aligns right on top of your side knobbies. Like Bagger said, weight the outside peg is the same concept. All motocross and desert racers do this. Now I feel confident round gravel curves at a much faster pace, and more importantly, with confidence.



    So git out there and move those arse!

    I just put on a Kenda 510-18 K270 6P on front this last Sunday, and I only took it for a short run down the road. Handles quite different than the stock tire, feels strange... It's balanced, no wobble, I think I must get used to it. Question, what is / are Kenda users feelings about the tire after it gets a few miles on it, or on me, will I get used to it being so different than the stock tire? Sorry, feels like a dumb question. m.

    Feel is quite easily changed with different tires on any motorcycle, much more so than a car or truck. You'll adapt. Play with air pressure. That can make a big difference.

    Thanks for that Q, I’m going to go real easy at first, so I can get a feel for it. I did notice the sidewall contact difference on asphalt straight off, caught me by surprise, spooked me a bit. I quite often go two to five miles on pavement, & then up dirt roads for a mile or more, as I use the bike to service vacation houses. I planned to run the tire at around 18-19 psi. Pretty good dirt roads, not soft or sandy, but I do have to watch out for gravel in spots. I go REAL easy there. No sense in being in a hurry to get to work. m.
