Are the AT rims designed for tubeless tyres? I see that the OE are tube type tyres.

The rims look like they are tube type.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than to seek permission.

You are right. The new CRF1000 comes on tubes again. I don't have any problems with tube tires, both my XLV750R's have tubes, and David's Transalp hibernating in my garage, has them too.

On my Varadero's I had more punctures (tubeless) the last 200.000 km than in the 200.000 km I have driven tubeless predecessors... ;)

Yeah, the D610 is bad on wet tarmac.

AT has tube type rims but you can always use tubeless with tubes, only repairing them on roadside would be harder as tubeless are harder to take from bead...

Had some 'Oops' moments with the Dunlops on wet tarmac as well. On dry they are 'razor-sharp', but even with the slightest hint of moist, they tend to go slippery...
Buying a new CRF and living in a damp climate? Negotiate to put it on proper rubber!

I've heard the same in this part of the world. Seems the OEM choice of Dunlop tires is not a good one.

Think my dealer have mounted Trailsmart on its own (6000 km with D610); some report soon ...



I've tried the d610 under rain today but very carefully !(I rode) and no problem for instance  ...  VCIF_salut

I had some ride on wet surface too, TC goes on at 130 km/h on acceleration, but craziest it is on engine braking!
