Default What type of tire do you use on your enduro bike

Just wondering what the ratio is for Enduro motorcycle riders across the country/ world.

Trials on the rear. I swap from a knobbie on the front depending on
where I plan to ride. Moab, Utah, slick rock. Trials on the front too.
My present tire combo is a Dunlop 739F on the front and a Dunlop
D803 on the rear. I have run the IRC trials tires in the past and like
them very much.

You know, I have heard a few guys around here saying how good those are, especially for the money.

I have yet to try one, or even seen one!
I get all my tires through my sponsors and they don't carry those.

A guy in our club runs a front trials tire for technical trail riding also.

I get them from Taskys in Everett or on the web. They last a LONG time. I have had my front for a year and a half riding it at least weekly. It just threw its first knob. When I used to run Michelins they would throw knobs off the front within ten rides.

I've used a few Sakura Dirt Sharks - great tire for the money! $60 for a rear knobby is a great deal especially since I can't get them to throw a knob.

That said, I usually run Maxxis IT or SI tires. Usually an IT front and I switch between the IT and SI rear depending on conditions. The IT rear is better in rocky/rooty technical trails, the SI is better in soft conditions and the motocross track.

I also just switched to a D803 trials tire on the rear. Wow, this sucker is amazing on rocky singletrack. I have to keep my head over the front wheel otherwise I'll loop out a lot of the time. Traction is unreal!

I'm running a Maxxis IT on rear, but I'm thinking of picking up a D803 as well.

Steve, are you running two rim locks?

Nope, just 1 motion pro or honda rimlock (can't remember which one is in this wheel). Doesn't look like it's slipping at all.

I can't get over how good the trials tire is. Stock, gasgas makes the best bush bike (IMHO), but now it's even better. Believe the hype about trials tires, and rekluse clutches.
