Look at the profile of the rear tire. I guess 3.000 km done so far. Must be good for another 10k I guess.

Dunlop D610 was like this after 9682 kms



And became :




For me the first roundabout was a bit confusing, I was afraid to find the bad feeling of "falling in bends" that I had with Tourance EXP ... And then after 3/4 turns it is indeed a sense of ease in setting the angle (probably increased by a fine of 90 tire); compared to the original Dunlop. The setting angle is super easy effect; a little more difficult to put online the bike (but not worse); the back seems to hold well and poses no problem ...
So we load to go in the Alps and off we went; along the kilometers that lightness to set the angle becomes an asset.
In conclusion, on dry, wet or soggy not the slightest stall; soft coil coatings and fittings are not a problem either; no problem on the track, no tripping TC in acceleration: excellent traction! stones and rocks even inflated to 3kg not wan ... to confirm to the last conditions if I find the time,I'll put the wheels a little bit more.

Excellent grip !!!  ;D

Hi Zebulon,

Are you still satisfied with your tck's?
Did you use the standard innertube or a special one wich can cope with radial TL tyres?

Still perfect  VCIF_ThumbUp done a little bit of fesh-fesh track this week, and no problem. I plan to try on some Cevennes ' track soon .
Mounted with the previous inner tube because not used enough ; you can mount without problem Bruno ! And keep us posted about your impressions .

Some of my friends have mounted Dunlop Trailsmart ( more road profile) and enjoy it on any condition . D610 problem is because of Japanese Dunlop independence. They have made a special tire and certainly some errors in rubber mixture .  VCIF_ok

We've done some more kils this week end; gone to Cantal to have some recognition for a next meeting. Have ride in undergrowth on dead leaves, both friends with Tourance next have lost their rear wheel for the BMuu ADV and front on Tiger Explorer ... absolutely no problem with TKC !!!  VCIF_ok

Hi zebulon. I'm enjoying your updates on the TCK70 tyre.


With the distance you have now put on these tyres, how have you found the front in wet downhill riding? Plenty of grip?  As mentioned previously I have these on my 98 Transalp and found them good, and I have the 70 on the rear of the VFRX. The front tyre is now getting to the point where I need to change it (have road pilot 4 on at present) so am looking to see how the tyre performs downhill in the wet on a larger bike.


I'm assuming form your comments above you've had no issues with the 70's at all?


Cheers...

Absolutely no problem with these tires; front and rear haven't done any fright to the rider (nor the pillion) . We've done 200 km today with Rainer/Meine dicke  VCIF_a095 on  stunning turning (narrow) roads, up and down ( but dry weather) ; and perfect as usual  VCIF_ThumbUp. There was a guy with us with TKC on a 1190, seems not so happy then me with front .... He have some staircase, perhaps the roads rided . I can only speak about my own experience 90/90 21 front, it is  VCIF_ThumbUp
You can report about the use on the CT.  VCIF_ok

I swapped the OEM Dunlops for K60 about a month ago but changed them to Conti Trail Attack 2 last week, because next couple of months I will only be giving road training and I want to spare my K60`s. First ride was towards the Eifel yesterday and it was a blast, had great fun in the twisties with these TA`s!

Perhaps a complete advice on both Heidenau & Continental ?  VCIF_salut

I am very happy with them. Better on tarmac than OEM and some confidence on the loose stuff. I did not get as much loose stuff as I wanted but it was ok for the time being. More when muddy seasons starts.

I made some 6k km on tarmac and they are on half I think...
