no affiliation with the seller

I currently am running these on my WRR and for about 80% of what I ride they work out great. If I am going to be doing a long distance ride with unknown road conditions then I will put the XCHM front and my 606 rear back on the bike.
The Shinko would never work in the sand( and occasional mud) that I typically ride. The D606 is about the best road wearing/road handling "knobbie" I would get away with in the sand. The cost is just so high, I have been holding off as long as I can.

I used to run TM 2's, and they were good in the sand, but wore down fast on and offroad. I now use XCMH's( last two sets), and they work great for my offroad, but have been not too happy seeing as much pavement as they have been seeing.

seems close to what I'd pay. for reference my '09 WRR was $3,950 with 2900 miles, an aftermarket tank, bark busters and skid plate in upstate NY. it had never been offroad. it has a lot more scratches now.

Yeah I usually don't see too much sand.

You may also want to look at the Shinko 244's. I ran sand in those before on my DR650 and they seem to handle it plenty well.. plus they are very inexpensive.

Now I am thinking about heading down to south GA on weekend and hitting some of those sand roads to see how bad the 705's will be. LOL

Yeah, I did look into the 244's too. I am sure it would do better than the 705's, but still not as good as true knobbies. Both of them would be better on the street, but luckily, I ride as little pavement as possible to get to the woods, and I have a dedicated street bike, for the street.

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.

I have the YZ pegs too, but not the Ti ones.
