Easier to do than explain.

Yamaha also likes to use a plastic rivet with a turning center piece. You turn the center 1/4 turn with a phillips screwdriver to release tension. The trick with these is that you often need to hold the outer edge of the rivet so that the entire rivet doesn't turn as you turn the center.

Installing is the opposite. With the center button pulled out as far as it will go, insert then fastener and then press the center button till you feel it click in, securing the fastener.

Thanks guys. Worked perfect.

Heidenau K60? I saw there is the K60 Scout, is it the same?
Other option is the Mitas E07...

Thanks!
Try the Mitas E07. I have a set on order but there is only 1 North American importer out of Canada, and they are waiting on a shipment. You should be able to get them much more easily.

I've been running the K60s. Best tire life I've ever had. I don't know if they
have a 21" front for that S10KTM thing you have created.

Karoo 3's Installed

No dirt time yet but they're fine on the street and look the business.











The change from the OEM Tourances reminds me of when I put e-rated tires on my Xterra. It is noticeable but not objectionable on the street. A slight hum and buzz at low speed that dissipates quickly. I'll accept a little low speed noise and feel on the street in exchange for some traction in what I encounter offroad here. FYI- I had 5250 miles at the changeover with a little wear left on the rear and probably another 4k left on the front.

Hitch mount

I'm in the early stages of planning a hitch for my bike so I can trailer my DR650. I have wolfman side racks installed and can't lose them. Do you think these open holes on the pillion pegs will be secure enough? On the right side there is 2 open holes if the peg itself is removed.

On the left side there is only the one you can see.

Will this work and be safe? Or, is there a better location? Keep in mind that the wolfman racks bolt into the pillion pegs on the upper side.

I've read that the central solid stripe make that they don't have much grip in off road ??
Are both (front and rear) good?

You're going to trailer your DR650 behind your S10? My initial take is that this is simply way too much weight/bulk to be trailering behind any motorcycle, although I'm sure it has been done.

As to the attachment points you are contemplating, I'm sure they're very substantial, but they're also not designed to take anywhere near the loads you're considering, so I wouldn't even consider it. But then again.... see above.

I'am definitely going to try Karoo 3 after my next two up trip in August.
It should be pretty dry in that period, so i guess it can also be done with Anakee type of rubber.
I was also planning to do some off road in alps next summer, but it's still far to say when exactly. Then again there's this xt800z story...

I am as well. Not sure where yet but I look forward to more input from the masses.

I've read some complain about less traction on wet roads without a enter slot to disperse water.
Personally I've never had a problem on or off road. I'm on my second set. Not quite the street confidence
but they are okay.

You should PM Thagua He has been working on both the hitch and some trailer ideas.

Scroll down a little on this page....

New, reasonable price.

Used, make sure you get two keys. It's about all they need.

The front is good all around and the rear is good until it gets slippery (mainly and issue if going up hill). A dry base layer with a slick top surface is tricky, snow becomes a battle and on ice your done - no go. Not sure what the Alps will present this time of year, but the K60 should work fine for the most part.

"...a man in his fifties lost control of his motorcycle while traveling on Interstate 77 near mile marker 106.
The motorcycle was towing a trailer at the time of the crash..."

"...he just got off to the side of the road and lost control by himself," Lyons said. "There wasn't any other vehicles involved."
