Yes. I have the 705s on the factory wheels and on my spare set of wheels(18" rear) I have some non DOT knobbies. I get them from a local shop. The guys that race enduro around here change tires after every race so I get their take offs for free. I don't care if they only last 250 miles.

Here is a link to a few pics of how they corner. I haven't bought them yet so I cannot load them here.

Like I said for a $100 a set price, you can't beat them.

The Avon Distanzia's have really jumped up in price. Great tires but better deals out there. The Shinko 705 tires won't last quite as long but are way cheaper. I got 5000 out of a 705 rear, 7000 miles on Distanizia, earlier Distanzia used on Cross country tour went 8000. (no dirt, lower speeds)

If I ever get a good weekend, I've got 705's on my DR, you could see how well they work on the local trails.

Mine sees about 95% street use, the other 5% being an occasional gravel road, which they do fine on. I would absolutely hate them in mud, I have noticed that the front likes to wash out on you in real slick stuff like wet grass and pine straw. (but what street oriented tire doesn't?)

What chicken strips?? Mine were gone shortly after I mounted them. I still need a good section of twisties to wear the nipples off though.
My nearly worn out boots are lacking in toe rubber also.

The 705s make great street tires. I can't vouch for them on the trails yet, but I'd imagine they would do well.

Lucky...I'm dying to get my DR out on some good trails! I'll definitely let you know if I get a free day one weekend.

Need helb with wobble

After installing new Kenda K270 tires I now have a wobbley rear tire/wheel combo. Yes the wheels were balanced. Cush drive and bearings seem great. spacers great..........until after 300 mile dual sport day this Saturday. took the wheel off before day 2 and everything looked great but the spacers on each end were chewed up a bit.

What did I do wrong?

What causes the rear tire to wobble? From a close distance my buddies said the wheel and hub looked straight but who knows?

Thanks!

I think you'll find they do better than you'd expect.
Air down to 20f 18r and go anywhere you want...

I almost left out part #19, I put it too far to the side and forgot it. I could not get the axle nut to tighten properly. Glad I stopped and walked away, found it lying on the floor.

DJ Kit

I just installed a TM40 on my DR. I have my DJ kit to sell with extended fuel screw. I am offering it here before going to the FM. PM me for details if you are interested. It will go to the FM later today.

Are you sure you got the spacer inside the wheel in? The long one that goes inside the wheel bearings.

i currently have a set of distanzias on my sumo wheels, DS compound on the rear. i found them as take-offs from a DRz and got them pretty cheap. so far i'm really impressed! they feel great on the road and i rode them about 70mi of dirt/rocks this weekend. work great in the dirt, not so great on the rocks but they got me where i wanted to go.

Thanks,
i ran the 130/80/17 Shinko for 5000mi and was pretty happy with it, they stick well in the corners but mileage was short for my commuter. i just took off the front Shinko after 5600mi and it's hardly worn (pic/right).

i swapped to a Kenda K761 (pic/left) rear and was not impressed, is squirmy when leaned over and the wear looks pretty bad after only 1500mi. but it was cheap and works well in the dirt.
