Just a status report on my 2011 KLR650
I installed my rear tire a while ago, and the front one this week end.
Though I'd post what they looked like FWIW.
The rear went just under 4K & the front just under 6K. I could have run them a little longer, but wanted to have good thread depth for off roading this summer. If only on pavement, I would have gone a few hundred miles more.
I run 21 psi in front, and 25psi in rear.
The Duroís handle good on pavement. Iím not into mud, but gravel, rocky roads are no problem with these tires. Only had the rear in wet pavement, and it seems to grip ok. I do ride according to conditions.
I also changed oil. The usage was about 1 1/3 quarts in 2,868 miles. It was down to the bottom of the site glass with bike in upright position.
There were a few trips of 100 miles or so at speeds of 65 Ė 70 mph.
Most riding was more sedate.. 50 mph typical.
