I am hoping to respring mine, I weigh 50 pounds more than the bike
Any other K-pipe owners out there have a suggestions on tires? While I don't want dirt bike/ trial tires I am coming up with nothing in the dual sport range. I want to stay tubeless.
I don't have any suggestions for tires yet... but I will say, the stock tires aired down are extremely compliant and do pretty well in the muck. With the limited power at hand, it doesn't take much to get a grip in anything but mud.
I have done a ton of internet searching and haven't come up with much that is OEM size, tubeless, and would hold up to pavement use... I cant even find a spot to order the front stock tire online. I have found some tubeless trials tires but I don't think they would last for much pavement use.
What about the Pirelli SL60?
I am running them on my Cali Classic with good results they are oversized and fit with no issue.
Shinko 244s may be a option for street knobbies if you have some clearance.. I didn't find your exact size. They're my plan for a small bike I have.
the K-Pipe has 17" wheels, it is not a scooter
I kinda wanted to avoid putting tubes in it if I can stay tubeless. I am sure the 3" would work on the front but I am not sure about the 5.10 on the rear...
After spending some miles on dirt with the stock tires I don't know if dual sport tires would make much of a difference. 125cc 4 stroke has all it can do to spin the stock tire in sand. Knobby tires would make a difference off road but I do enough miles on pavement that they wouldn't last long for my use which is really 75% pavement 25% dirt.
I have a lot of fun riding this bike!
my concern is keeping speed in corners, oem tires work great on pavement, but I do want something more aggressive
