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.
