I bought my MotoZ tires here:
what is the model of the tire you show next to the lame tkc80?
ps: i assume it is a Tractionator
@edwin Tractionator is not a tire rather a series tires by MotoZ as discussed above
It's the elusive Tractionator Adventure I mentioned in post 1..
There's also a Tractionator Adventure GPS that looks interesting for long distance travel
Right-o Jackalsour. my bad.
i am now itching to try the Adventure
We have a few MotoZ's in stock and can get them from a new supplier now. If you are in Langley stop by or shoot us a request via this web form.
I'm considering the Motoz GPS for my 2013 GSA. Any concerns with traction on wet pavement? Out here wet pavement is normal pavement...
Those tires are new so not a lot of info out yet, but RTWpaul has a good review of them here (at the very bottom)
Depending how far the ADV goes I might look for the ADV GPS to finish the ride to AK
Looks like the Adventure version would of lasted long enough to make the trip to Tuk and back.. My current tires with over 5000 km on them which is about average total lifespan for a knobby tire on my bike. These ones are well above average
Looks like I could get another 4 k km out of them.
I just ordered Motoz tires from Burnaby Kawasaki. Apparently there are two distributors in Canada. One doesn't have stock, but the other one does.
MotoZ Tractionator Adventure has held up well for over 4500kms of 50/50 riding fully loaded. It's now my go to rear tire
FortNine now has the Adventure and Adventure GPS available online. I just drop shipped myself a spare to haul north to Alaska
The current tire could likely make it to AK but I'm adding a lot of kms on side quests and don't want to get stranded
sub'd to this thread
+5000 kms of trans Canada highway, gravel, forestry road, rail beds, grid roads, double tracks, quad tracks, snowmobile tracks, washouts, sand and beaver dams
This one was only $139 closeout sale and now they are back in stock on FortNine at $188. Local shops quoted me $285
Winnipeg dealer claims they couldn't balance them but they also recommended K60. I noticed they are noisy on pavement but I'll happily take that for the traction
Yours looks better at 5000 KM than mine, it still looks like you have half life left..
I’ve been trying not to spin the back too much and stay on softer surfaces if possible. It may well make it to Alaska but got a spare in case. Hard to source tires en route
A lot of our gravel roads on the Island are made up from blasted rock which tends to cut down a tire pretty quick...
has anyone had any luck finding these in stock in 140/80r18 in Canada? Everywhere I've looked online seems to be out of stock....
What one do you want? I can look into it once I’m back in the shop on Monday.
I’ve been trying to find a motoz tractionator (non gps) tube type 140 80 18.
There are several suppliers that I have found that sell them but everyone has been out of stock.
I just had Brian at the Bikesmith in C.R. bring me one in a week or 2 ago.. He was able to get it pretty fast so there is stock out there..
That would be typical. And why the last supplier stopped carrying them. They have always had a supply and demand issue.
