I've got the 150/70 Heidenau K60 on the back of my XC, can't see any reason why it wouldn't work fine. Ken

The stock Battlewing is a 150/70/17 so...

That's a good looking tire. I was planning on the K-60s but, This looks nice. Choices are good.

I just ordered a set for my Sierra trip later this month. Both tires with free shipping came to $144.27 US Dollars. That is so cheap. As long as they last trip i'll be happy!! I'll report back how they did.



I got them from http://www.kgmotorcycletires.com/

Haven't heard of the Full Bore tires. I wonder where they are made? The tread pattern looks familiar ... sort of like a Trail Wing, Avon Gripster or MT60 Pirelli?

IMHO, not nearly aggressive enough for the dry, loose and rocky conditions in the Sierra in October. I would be running a TKC80 up front and run low pressure on the Full Bore tire out back.

Let us know what it says on the side wall (Made in ... ? ) My guess is it's made by Duro , Cheng Shin ... or ??

I tried to find a site that had TKC 80's and the M40's so could order them together but didn't find one.

That looks like a rebranded Shinko 705. I've got the Shinko on the back wheel of my XC (with a Kenda Big Block knobby on the front).

XC in the Pyrenees.

Just been on a swift trip to explore the eastern end of the Pyrenees. Based ourselves in Le Boulou and had done some research on tracks to use (Mapsource and Google Earth) and rode generally southwest from there.
The XC did very well all round and the Heidenau K60 scouts were superb. In amateur hands (like mine and my mates) this bike is the equal of the KTM990ADV.
Came across some of this....

And this....

Defeated by this....

The photo doesn't do it justice.

Thanks! Much better than I was, back at work, etc; but I'll be waiting a while for this damn femur to heal before I can start riding again. And of course this had to happen just in time for me to miss my favorite season of the year for riding...

Could have been worse though... thanks to good gear, my head is intact -- and I wasn't riding the Tiger that day, thank god!

Has anybody cracked into the gauge cluster yet? I'd like to disable the idiot gas light cause I'm not an idiot and I can read the gas gauge and trip meter. That thing is bright and annoying at night. I just took a quick peek at it and I didn't see how it comes apart. Removing it from the bike doesn't look hard, but getting to the guts may be a different story.

How about putting a piece of tape over it?
