Love the TKC 80 on front.
Dunlop is almost gone at 3,000 miles
I'm going to try Heidenau scout next on rear.
It's sitting in garage just begging to be put on!!

I was just down through Florida to Daytona last week on a road bike. Where are you down there, Pesca ?

I had put TKC80, now I have put mitas E09, the mitas are cheaper and are similar in behavior and duration.

rear mitas E09 DAKAR



front mitas E09 normal







The TKC80 front just before change were worn unevenly, seemed a saw, watch this picture carefully.

That's exactly how TKC 80's wear. They wear down the rear part of the front blocks, as that's the part of the front tire that is used during braking.

hey Jezuar,

thanks fpr the pics. That Mitas front tire profile looks as it could perform a little bit better in Sand and mud. I'll try them soon.

Tires are so many reviews as people jejeje
I really went well the mitas and the tkc too.

Evidently tkc have many more reviews for many years in the market.

For what I do have noticed almost no difference, except in my pocket.

Lewiss the problem is that there is no measure for wheel 19
Metzeler sahara is more like the Heidenau K60

cold engine bad run

Hi there!!! GXers!!

I have a G650x country, 2007, 5200km.
Installed recently a booster plug, KN filter (removed the under fairing air box lid), and a Leo vince X3 exhaust.... wraped the exhaust header in aramid tape....
Since that, when the engine is cold, it runs normaly, but suddenly death... start again, runs good, and suddenly off again..... happens for 3 or 4 times on idle only... after, runs normal...

someone had the same issue, with the extras or not, how can you fixed?

regards form Brazil!!!

front fender brace

Has anyone modified their front fenders and is willing to sell the metal brace? I want to use it to stop the flutter on my Xmoto fender above 90 MPH (on the track - before anyone scolds me!). Thanks!

The battery is the first thing I would look.
It could also be a sensor that is malfunctioning

I could be the Idle actuator that needs to be cleaned or reset (Pull the throttle all the way,Turn on ignition kee,turn it off,release the throttle).
