I run 18lb in the 241 in the sand, mud and on the road. Although I hate mud just based on having to clean it
For me 18lb is fine for the front tire, in fact great, for the riding I do which is a daily (try to ride every day) mix of asphalt road at 55+MPH and Sand Roads (2-3" loose stuff) @ 5 to 40 MPH and then jaunts in deep sand (6"+) at whatever speed I can keep it on two wheels which with the 241 is now not a concern at all. I used to fear for my life when the stock tire was on there. I really can't say enough about this tire being a major improvement over stock. If I was in the deep stuff for any long period of time I would lower the pressure more but i'm in and out of it thankfully.
As far as the rear tire I have not settled on a figure yet and won't do so until my new works performance shock is mounted. I'm hoping it comes today that would be a great fathers day!
I now carry a mini compressor with me so I can tweak it trying to find what works best in the back but with a new shock all the metrics may change, we'll see....
32 psi in my Heidenau front tire. 32 psi for asphalt, dirt, sand, rocks, etc. 99% of my riding is on paved roads. Less than 32 psi and the angle wear of the knobs is accelerated. I also emphasize the use of the back brake for the same reason.
Somewhere around 14K to 15K miles on the tire and it looks like it will last a good while longer.
I’m new to dirt (street rider). If this is an old topic forgive me. I’ll be solo remote trail riding and want maximum “safety gear” within weight & size limits.
I’m not sure what they’re called but I plan on getting a “jump start battery gadget”. I was looking at a 1000mah device. About the...
Hello esteemed TWers and TWettes :)
I’m a potential buyer and while I’ve read so many pros and cons about this intriguing little bike, I figured it made sense to come to ask those who know it best.
So I’m choosing between a TW200 and a ZX-14…ok, more like a TW200 and a...
I snagged this idea from the other forum I check daily (www.infamousnissan.com) because it is super popular there.
I replaced my old grips with a nice set of Pro Grip 714s ($9.99 shipped from www.motorcycle-superstore.com), swapped out my fuel petcock because it was nearly impossible to...
Have read lots of posts on the death wing front tire. I live in Tampa area and we have a lot of SAND (yuk). Just wanted to ask specifically for opinions on what tire is best for sand? If you have an opinion and can provide detail (exact size etc) it would be much appreciated.
