I also took the T63 front off of my 950 when it was not even half gone because I didn't like it. Too much squirming when riding hard... especially on downhills with the tire loaded up. Not confidence inspiring.
I'll throw it on my 500 and use the other half there.

For the price it is a decent tire. It has a tread pattern similar to a TKC80 but the tread does not go as high on the sidewall nor are the lugs as long.

Unlike the TKC it did not exhibit the cupping normally found on that tire. It is physically smaller and narrower than the TKC.

Works fine on pavement and did not have the wanders that the TKC has at speed, but not as good off pavement, especially in the loose stuff IMO.

I have run the front on both a F800gs and a KLX680. I do like the rear tire on the KLX.

T63 front and rear, Yuma to LaPaz and back. Lot's of dirt and rocks, XR650r.

2 front flats - pinch
2 rear flats - nail and pinch

Probably will not put on another set on current 690 and 990. Heard mention of flimsy side walls? Not good for rugged, bigger bikes......
