    Hello Everyone. I have been trying to get a rear Dunlop 908 for the SE, but seem to be struggling. The 150 is available but the 140 looks to be either no longer available, as advised by one store. Or, available end of July as advised by Fortnine.
    Anybody know of somewhere with stock, or whom can supply. I am going round in circles on the net. I cannot even find Dunlop Canada's phone number and the US number is always an answer machine. The 908 was my go to tyre for the Adventure and I would like to put it onto the SE as I know what to expect from it.

    No one I have contacted now has D908in the 140 size up here, most saying maybe available again after July. I think I will be trying the a new tyre now. A first for me in a good few years! I am just looking through the MotoZ stuff, specifically the Enduro or Desert options. I will be dropping Triple Clamp Moto a message next week to see what they can supply as they show both types on their website.

    Both 140 in the picture. Motoz is shorter and wider than the 908. Would not fit without hitting the chain. FYI.

    On my Africa Twin, I ran the 140 motoz instead of the 150, and it was still wider. Meaty tire.
