Dude is your final drive pissing oil? Looked like it was leaking out the top and around the hub.

Nice tires BTW. I think I'm getting those or the K60's when the Metzlers are worn out.

$CA284.90 (about $US280) delivered for the pair of Mitas, vs $324 for the pair of K60s delivered from Revzilla. You might find them a bit cheaper than that, but as far as I can tell there is little discounting going on with the Heidenau.

I don't know how long the Mitas last - I have a K60 rear that will go at least 10,000. The Mitas will hopefully go somewhere close to that, but I don't know. Can somebody who's used them chime in?

This from the Central Oz ride report - yes that is gear oil around the hub - apparently a temporary condition, a result of hundreds of mile of corrugated roads...

This tire looks like the older K60 and not the Mitas E-07 in the link They may have not updated the website? But a good looking tire. I would like to know how they last. Cost looks good.

Trevor Trevor Trevor, Now look what you gone done

That bike was traveling for about 130Km over washboard, When you hammer the rear drive constantly for two hours over wash board some oil escapes through the vent, because it is being thrown all over the inside of the hub, instead of mostly sitting in the bottom with a nice arc going around the drive cog.

There were two bikes, along, both S10's and both did the same thing, They put a couple more cc in the hub, just to top it up, and continued for another 2000Km.

BMW guys get really excited for a little while when they see that pic.

I notice you carry some read and black farkles wrapped around the crash bar Bob,

Hows the starting going?

And for everyone else just double what SSBob gets from his rear tyres.

Just a pipeline but a little muddy and some rocks, but hills up and down. I have a PR2 on the rear for the winter, did not plan on any off road.

Bike ate it up. I was standing and running pretty hard, did not notice the lights, but in lots of the pictures my TC light was blinking. He said that I was throwing a very small roost as the bike struggled for traction in the loose stuff. Really neat bike, and yes the UBS ABS is superb off road!

Yeah I knew it was risky posting that pic, but it was the best I could find of the tyre. I DID put an explanation about the oil, but knowing that SOMEBODY would just look at the pic and go off.

I'm betting that A19pilot is a KLR rider - which might go some way to explaining his poor attention to detail

In those conditions, try it in TC2 instead of TC1. It will allow a little more wheelspin and the traction control won't cut in so early. You'll get a smoother ride due to more consistent power delivery.

You still have to check the seals on any shafty subjected to that kind of environment,
In the battle between a rubber seal and grinding paste the grinding paste will slowly win, the key word there is slowly.

That guys seals were still OK.
