    To all you duro power grip enthusiast I believe your right with this tire for an excellent off road tire. I have not ridden on the street with it but off road its just bites and keeps going where I know the stocker would of left me stranded or the need for speed might of compensated but its more fun being a tractor. Installing this tire is pure Hell! I got the feeling I was actually going to end up using this tire on the dock for a boat bumper. 2 tire shops and no luck...I finally did what I didnt want to do and I skimmed the bead area with a dremel like tool on my drill. Barely took any rubber off but enough that when I went back to the tire guy it popped on with a loud bang and brought dirt down from the rafters. I definatly didnt compromise the tire in any way doing this as I was very light on the removal of rubber and made sure I went slow and even. Fits the bike excellent, looks excellent..just need a bigger rear sprocket as it is a taller tire so my gearing is taller. With a 50 tooth sprocket its way to high geared now. Going down a steep hill I had to ride the brakes where as before I could of used 1st gear with no brakes. Thinking going for a 60 tooth, as I am not looking for highway speeds. Had a chance to ride it in the snow and it grips excellent. Definatly got a few looks and had one person snap a picture of it!.So just thought I would share this review, hope it helps.

    What PSI did it pop at?



    I would choose a bighorn over a duro due to its square-ish tread. I may be wrong..but if it works for you great!



    Post up some pictures!

    i have a 70 tooth sprocket and love it...if youw ant a lottle more top end 60ish will be your friend.

    Hey Capt,



    I've been running my Duro for about 1,500 miles now with most of that being on the road. It works well for me. It feels a little "gravelly" just starting out, but once you get rolling you don't notice it. The tire is pretty square and it takes a little extra effort to get the bike leaned over. This can best be described as it makes the bike want to go straight ahead.



    I am currently running dual rear sprockets, the stock 50 and a 47. This combo is nice because I can get by with the stock chain length for both sprockets, but it is geared a little too high for serious offroading. I am thinking about changing the 50 to a 60 when I replace the chain and get a longer chain.



    You are right about the Duro getting a lot of looks. When I ride the TW to work I can see it from my office and I see people stopping all the time and getting out and looking at it. I am hoping that it never wears out because I am definitely not looking forward to having to change it!

    Are you running dual sprockets on the same hub? Do you have photos? Even more to envy on the best looking TW out there.

    Hi Gerry,



    I was going to dig up some photos for Brock, but after reviewing your thread again I realized that I had already posted information about my dual rear sprocket setup. Thanks again for the inspiration for this mod!

    Just for the record, I tried to mount a my Duro last week and the tyre formed a bubble in the sidewall once it beaded.



    The first time I tried to put it on, it wouldn't bead. Then, I cut the bead a little with a knife, and then the bubble.



    I threw the tyre in the bin! I wish ITP Terracrosss were available in Australia; I had that on it before and it was excellent. Probably lasted 10,000ks.

    Having dual ratios with a single chain length is a good idea. I crunched the numbers on dual sprockets front and rear, trying to find the maximum ratio spread with the same length chain. Try 15/50 and 13/54, with 12mm difference in axle position.

    The issue I found with the 13 tooth is that it does not bolt to a keeper plate, rather it uses a clip. I guess the reason is that the reduced diameter will cause the bolt head (keeper plate) to interfere with the chain properly seating to the sprocket. In looking into using the 13 tooth sprocket, I realized/thought I would need to come up with another method of mating the two primary cogs. Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........
