MotoZ Tires

Post  Rd650 on Sun Jan 11, 2009 8:31 pm

Here is my pig with some new HT Desert Motoz tires. They look very aggressive and were not to difficult to mount. I can't wait to give them a go.

130/90x 18


90/90x 21

I guess it's fitting since our BRP's squeal like a pig .

By the way it's Billy Redden...He makes a movie appearance every 10 years with a banjo on his knee.

Finally got a chance to ride the bike with the new skins. The tires hooked up well considering the fact they are a hard compound and the trail I was riding on was freshly plowed red clay. The front seemed to push some , but it is probably due to my suspension setup and technique. The day was cut short and I did not get as much riding time as planned.

My son and I had gone to a motorcross practice track that also had trails on the facility. About the third lap my son was pulled over to the side and said his KX250 TS had hung wide open. After cranking the bike and reving it in nuetral it seemed normal. So I took it down the service road and got on it pretty hard in 2nd and 3rd gear with no ill effects. At this point I went out on the track going slowly and just reving it on the straights and safe corners. About a 3rd of the way up the face a of a jump the bike reved to the moon. The next thing I knew I came down an my butt and compressed very hard. Nothing seems to be broken, but I am just now to the point of being able to walk unnassisted. Pain killers and coffee for me today.

Will not get a chance to look at my sons bike until some healing takes place.

Hey Chrimsey,

First time poster on this site, just noticed your in the SW as well? Where abouts?
I'm in Harvey. Also looking for a new tyre, currently running a flogged out MT21, thinking about another Michelin AC10.

Tried one of those before?

Hey 6Fidy im up in Toodyay, I do a few rides with west coast safaris, Awesome setup, and always a great adventure, Mate i have ran a AC 10 on my mates WR 450r only a week ago, took it for a Run out on my fave ingle tracks its very nice, Im not sure how it will handle the extra torque of the XR , But worth a Shot, i would stay far away from a Motoz if ya riding in the hill down Harvey way, im always keen for a ride if ya ever wanna come up to Toodyay area, message me
Cheers chrimsey
