Hi all. I just got a set of Dunlop D606 dirt tires for my KLR. The back tire which is currently on my bike is a 130/80 - 17, but the new dirt tire is a 130/90 - 17, which I think is a little taller? Could someone please verify that the new one will fit my 2009 with no clearance issues? Thanks very much in advance.
I've used a D606 for about six months now, and by coincidence, I spooned a new one on today! I have a 2009, and it fits fine with a 15t front sprocket. It is a bit taller than stock, so it's a hair closer to the swing arm. I don't know if you'd run into trouble with a 16 or 17t, but it fits fine with the 15t. Oh, and ps, I love the tire. Traction up the ying yang.
Fast, good, cheap - choose two.
