  2. When to change tyres

    Transalp
    I'm currently running on a pair of Anakee 3's on my XL700 Transalp which have been great. I've just had my MOT (failed on headstock bearings and too much play in the clutch) and as an advisory they've stated that the tyres are worn close to the legal limit. Now, I'm going to query this when I...
  3. Tyre Wear

    Varadero
    My previous tyres were Bridgestone Battle Wings which lasted about 5000 miles. After consulting the great and wise on this forum I switched to running Metzeler Tourance Next which I'm pleased with. I have about 4000 miles on these at the moment and about 3 mm of tread on the front and back. I'm...

  9. Try these Tyres for the FMX650 !

    Dominator / FMX
    I have rarely posted a thread on the forum, but really believe I should share my experience with the Avon Distanza tyres I've been using on the FMX for the last 4 months. Maybe other FMX owners have experienced front wheel slip out when cornering and the same on rear occasionally. I have been...
  10. What happened here?

    Varadero
    What I think happened is that I had a slow puncture (thanks to the visible 'dig' in the tread) and because I was running slightly flat the tyre wore more on one side. Any ideas? This is the tourance which was new for my Morocco trip last year and has done exactly 10k.

    Read some discussion on this issue, but can't find the tread. Where do I get gaiters 43mm/63mm and 195mm long of Honda OEM quality ? Anyone fitted to Varadero ? Anything to look out for when disassembling the front legs, could they become different length / not aligned ?

  18. Heidenau K60 Scouts...

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Just took delivery of my k60 Scouts... First thoughts are, WOW, these mothers have serious amounts of tread depth. The Tourances I have fitted have lasted well with over 7,000 miles on them and probably a few more to go, but I was disappointed with the amount of tread depth on them when new...
