DUNLOP D616 TIRES
FOR MANY YEARS I'VE USED THSES TIRE ON MY BMW R1150RT WITH AN OPTIONAL REAR WHEEL (5.5X17). WITH GREAT RESULTS, BUT WHEN I HAD THESE TIRES PUT ON MY NEW 2011 BMW RT THE FRONT TIRE MILAGE HAD DROPPED FROM 24+K MILES, TO JUST OVER 12K MILES, THE REAR FROM 12+K TO MAYBE#?) 6K. I BELIVE THAT DUNLOP HAD CHANGED THE RUBBER COMPOUND TO A SOFTER MIX. WHATS PERPLEXING TO ME, IS THAT WITH THE R1150RT I WAS ON THE SUPER SLAB 90% OF THE TIME AT 5 OVER THE SPEED LIMIT, BUT WITH MY R1200RT IT'S BEEN RIDDEN 75% ON BACK ROADS AT A MUCH SLOWER PACE!! ANOTHER THING TO CONCIDER, IS THAT BECAUSE OF THE AGRESIVE TREAD, YOUR GAS MILAGE WILL DROP BY 3-5 MPG.I wouldn't recommend this item to a friend.
Best Bang for the Buck
After spending countless dollars on sport bike tires to fit my custom chop, not one of them would last more than 3-5000 miles, tops. All were beyond slippery in wet conditions during the mid to later stages of their lifespan. (I ride 15k-20k/yr.) Only 500+ miles on this tire but Im not seeing the loss of tread depth usually seen at this point. Haven't had any rain to deal with yet, but noting the unusual tread pattern, I cant see wet conditions being a problem. A side note: this tire throws less rocks onto the back of my head at low speed conditions. So far, best bang for my dollar and will go with a matched set next time around.I would recommend this item to a friend.
It gets the job done.
I bought this tire b/c it was what was on the bike when I bought it used. The front was still in great shape and the back had threads showing in the center. I wanted to keep a matching set so I picked up a new rear. Price was better than I could find anywhere else. I would have rather replaced both with some Pilot Powers but i guess that will be next time. Seems to be a good tire though.I would recommend this item to a friend.
Fast, Affordable and Helpful!
After the local dealer sold me a bike with mismatched tires, I went looking for a stock replacement. The price and shipping were spot on. It arrived when the customer service rep said it would and it was fully $80 cheaper than what the dealer wanted to charge me. I'll be using Dennis Kirk again in the future for sure. My bike rides like a brand new machine. Thanks!I would recommend this item to a friend.
Best tire for Buell Ulysses
I have tried several different tires on my Buel Ulysses, by far this tire out performs them all. It is great on all surfaces dry or wet except for mud, but no street tire is good in mud. Overall the quality, performance and value are hands down the best for my bike.I would recommend this item to a friend.
