good idea to change the mounting side for the rectifier, much more cooler on the left side for the RD04 too

Those look like a nice tire. I put the 3s to work this past weekend. In a straight line on dirt the back was pretty solid. The front is not so great in gravel/loose stuff. On the road manners are great. Wear wise they are looking really good. I've got over 1300 on them and the center is only slightly showing wear. Hoping to get well over 10K out of them.

I'm pretty sure I will be running the new Metzeler Karoo 3 in the spring as I'm hearing good stuff about them.

Yeah...trapezoid-shaped knobs on those Karoo 3 . It's amazing the choices we have today when choosing a dual sport tire...enough to make your head spin.


The trapezoid-shaped knobs have an innovative geometry which ensures progressive off-road traction at various lean angles. The “V” shape of the pattern provided by the knob arrangement optimizes power transmission and wear. The center knobs are larger, which reduces their mobility to enhance stability at high speed. The knob-spacing varies from the center to the shoulder: at the center the knobs are spaced farther apart to guarantee better penetration in soft terrain, offering better traction off road, while on the shoulder the knobs are closer together in order to guarantee more rubber on the road—and more grip—when leaning into a curve on asphalt

I was just commenting on the Karoo 3s. I have the Anakee 3s. Haven't had a chance to run the Karoo 3s. I've heard people complain of noise with the Anakee 3s, but I'm not one of them. They stick really well on tarmac. Great cornering. Spent two hours in rain and one hour in freezing sleet and they didn't slip at all. Just a little time in the dirt. Front is not good in deep gravel/soft stuff. Rear hooks up pretty well.

My impression is that they're bloody EXPENSIVE !!

I don't see a knobbly tire lasting much more than 3000 to 5000 miles on any Dual Sport bike that sees a lot of pavement.

Given that, I've had great performance from Michelin T63s for about $70.00 USD for a rear, as opposed to $190.00 USD for the Karoo.

FWIW, the Mitas E07 on my AT are now around 4K kms and still no noticeable wear, after 95% use on pavement. Last summer did a 2-up trip of around 2k kms and full cargo. I'm sold!
