Rear tire mounted backward

Modern tires have there internel belts run in a way to handle monster power from braking and acceleration. Basicly the rear tire has the belts run to handle acceleration, the front tire has the belts run to handle breaking forces. You can run a rear tire backward on the front wheel , but it is not recomented to run a front tire backward on the rear, and NEVER run the tire backward in its intended location. Make sence? Probably never be a problem if you never accelerate heavily or break hard.

Bi-directional tyre O' rhone illegitimate one
Heidenau k60 rear has no direction and I find perfoms best like this. front is directional.

I’m sorry my friend, you isn’t the first person to put a tyre on the wrong way nor the last.

The tyre doesn’t need a big arrow saying mount this way, if you know the prices of eggs.

The V shape pattern on off road tyres tread, whether it is a truck, tractor or bike is designed to be a self cleaning tread pattern in soft muddy conditions. As the tyre removers mud by forward rotation it squeezes it away from the tyre creating a new contact surface and better grip.

Heidenau K60 is the tyre used by the British army on all their bikes and I’ve never seen one mounted the same as you’ve done.

Now go and take it off and put it on the correct way round and stop being so silly.

We have chooks so I have no idea of the price of eggs.

Please feel free to ride yours backwards with below avaerage traction on the power, and poor braking, I'll ride mine the right my way with fantastic traction on and off road, with excellent mud shedding characteristics, and enjoy it thoroughly.

Don't knock it 'til you try it sonny...

So you’re telling us that you have done comparable tests with the tyre the correct way round and on backwards. Resulting in better performance by running the tyre backwards?

I haven’t tried the K60 yet on my 950, but I’m looking forward to. What I’m most interested in is that you state, the tyre is made and designed as a unidirectional tyre.

Not that I’m distrusting your comment but can anyone else confirm the rear K60 is unidirectional?

Those would be the fork protectors from the Touratech 950 high fender kit.

Or you could do what at least two of us have done and cut the fork protectors of the factory front fender. Super cheap and solid after 10k miles.

The KTM 85SX fork protectors are what I used. Worked out well and they aren't THAT much $$$.
I used the boys 250SX front fender just because it was sitting around but the 85 SX front fender will works also.

Yup! Tried both. This way is better by a country mile. My tyre guru told me it would be, but I didn't believe him. Proof of how little I really know.
