Will a Dunlop D606 130/90-17 fit my 2011 KLR?

Just wondering if a Dunlop D606 130/90-17 fit my 2011 KLR? Currently the tire I have on is a 130/80-17 so I know the Dunlop will be a little taller that what I am currently running. There is a local guy selling one and I just want to make sure it fits before I buy. Thanks..

Perfect. I was thinking it might be to tall and rub. It's used but he is only asking $50 and looks like its barely been used. I'm gonna pick it up and install it tomorrow. What's a good front to go with a D606? Thanks for the fast reply.

It will fit, and using a 15T, 16T countershaft sprocket, but not with a 17T c'shaft sprocket, ( std. chain length) it will rub on the swing arm pivot area, the 17 T moves the rear axel forward...

90/90-21 up front for the d606.


Be sure to install a new rim strips when changing your tires if its looking worn.

I took delivery of my new 2016 with Conti TKC80s and the outer knobbs on the rear tire rubbed on the muffler. On advice from forum members, some spacers fixed that issue. Last month we were running D606s in some aggressive offroad environments and they were fine; no rubbing anywhere. However, I still have those spacers in there so you may want to take a peek and make sure there's no rubbing on the muffler.
