I picked up some MotoZ Tractionator DOT tires for my next rubber. Front is an 80/100-21 and rear is a 120/90-18. I got the harder compound ( 50/50). The rear was $85 at Royal Distributing in Canada http://www.royaldistributing.com/Cat...ng-Fall/m/#294

I priced a 606 and it was retarted! I'm replacing K270's so I should notice a difference! I mounted one on my buddies XT 350 and he loved it. Much tougher to mount than the Kenda. Next step is to see how it wears.

Yeah, I am curious about those tires too, AND, how much it would be to ship to the US? Good thing about US to US, most online places do free shipping for tires.

Dual sport armory has them, I think.

Scrooges!

Why are you guys so damn bothered about saving money on tyres?

Everyone's throwing money at sparkly things and gadgets and then you scrimp on the only thing that gives you traction!

In Oz I pay equivalent of about $100-130 for a rear D606 ... it's about the best available so the price is irrelevant. Are you paying that much more?

Foot pegs

Just out of curiosity, what are you guys using for aftermarket foot pegs?
I'd like something larger for a more stable and comfortable platform while standing. Pivot Pegz look nice but spendy. Are there any other pegs that are working for anyone?

Good point Reeksy. D606 rears cost $99 at Motorcycle Superstore right now. The US pays less for anything moto-related than the rest of the world.

Perhaps it depends on how many tires one wears out in a season. For me, doesn't matter that much, because I usually get 1 or 2 seasons from a tire, but I agree, I'm more inclined to buy my tire of choice and skip the aftermarket exhaust system, or whatever.

Fastway F3 footpegs


On a side note I was just looking for the post on wrrdualsport.com and it looks like someone didn't renew their domain registry. It would be a shame if that site is gone -- so much good information there.

I'm using a set of Titanium OEM YZ pegs bought used off eBay, paid about $30 for the pair. Highly recommended--wider and stronger. You'll have to grind a bit off the peg where it hits the stop to get similar folding action, but Ti grinds pretty easily.

Must be different economics down under, but on this side of the globe, its simple. Something that is going to have to be replaced multiple times through the life of the bike, we try not to spend more than we need to.
We get the tires that will do the job, but try not to spend more than we need to on them.

Do all the yz pegs need to be modified? Are they a lot bigger than the WRR pegs?

The Fastway pegs are more what I'm looking for, but $$$.

I heard something about modding the pegs, but mine swapped right out...easy peasy.

I'll check my ebay and see if I can figure what year they actually were.
