I know.. that's weird. I have a set of them on my bike right now, and I was confused when I first got em.

Are those your hacks?

The yellow one looks like it has the 244s and the red looks like it has trials tires?

If the yellow is yours would you post some more pics please?

No. Those aren't my bikes.. I WISH! I just found it on a different thread..
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=371634

You're right though, but both bikes have the same combination of tires.
The rear is a Kenda K270, and front is Cheng Shin Trials.

On my bike I have Shinko 244 on both the front and the rear. I'm looking at picking up a Shinko SR241 for the front. I always find the front tire doesn't have enough control for moving in the direction I wanna go... But damn does it have traction for a dual sport tire.

VERY FUN!!!

I was looking at using the trials tire but I was concerned with the longevity of the tire. You go first

Have you found the 244s to be stable on the road at speed? (So far so good here).

BTW

What bike is that??

That bike is a 2007 CBR125.. It's probably the most reliable on/off road bike I've ever been on. Such a fun ride off road because it's so damn light, but it handles the road excellent too, and is surprisingly quick for a 125. Ask anyone.

The 244s work great on the road. My steering was a bit off when I first got them installed.. it was almost as if the front wheel was lagging behind and I had to counter steer to go around sharp corners. But other than that, the traction is phenomenal, even in the rain and mud.

I've currently got 46,xxx klicks on that 125, and that's in 4 years. Such a reliable, not to mention cheap, way to have fun. I've had the 244s on for maybe 2,000km, and there's maybe half a millimeter of wear after 90% road use, 10% off road use. I think it's mainly due to the fact that the 125 is so light, so there's not that much force acting on the tires themselves

I live in Canada and the CBR125 is not available in the USA. Unfortunately.

Cbr 125

Interesting machine your CBR. My VF500f weighs a lot for a 500. I'm figuring on these tires burning down pretty quick, but the Battleaxes I had on before didn't last long anyway. So, I figure the fun factor and the versatility will make up for it. Plus, at $26 for a 244 vs $70?? for a Battleaxe I can go through a few before I feel bad .

I'm LOVING the bike with the DS tires. It's like a new machine.

A friend is machining a set of riser for my bars so they come up 2.5" and back about an inch. It's just a split collar with a step back to the shock tube OD.

On a CBR125 forum, there's a guy with a sweeet setup on his bike

They aren't pictures.. they're links for them. For some reason, the thread wouldn't let me take direct links.

Canada gets all the cool bikes. When clicking on the links, the pics don't come up either.

Hmm.. weird. I think the cbr125forum is ridiculously secure, so it doesn't let anyone who's not a member see any of the pictures.

Anyway, I'll just reupload them myself.

Yeah, well the bike itself gets 110 miles per gallon and costs $3,500 Canadian brand new. You can't ask for much more than that! On the top end, the highspeed usually depends on the weight of the rider, but I've gotten mine to nearly 90mph
