Heidenau K76 Rear Tire The Heidenau K76 is an Adventure / Dual Sport tire for both on- and light off-road use. The wide tread block arrangement and balanced rubber compound provides excellent traction and foul-weather grip for the road, while allowing you to peel off tarmac and attack the fire road.

I bought a K76 to replace a K60 rear that I wore out in only 3500 miles, so I am running it with a K60 front. After a couple hundred miles I'm am very pleased with its grip on fire roads, broken asphalt and twisties back roads I ride in rural NC. I can't say how many miles I'll get out of it but I hope it will last longer than the M60 did which I think it should just do to tread design.

I am going to run this tire on the rear of my KLR 650 along with a 244 Shinko on the front. I have been running 244s both front and rear but am eating up the rear pretty quick in mixed 50-50 riding so I thought I'd try this combination
Yes, I recommend this product.

I just mounted this myself on my wife's suzuki C-50 and it went on easily. It seems to grip in all conditions very well and it typical Shinko fashion is a fairly soft compound tire so I'm not expecting a lot of miles but I think it's a great tire for the money
Yes, I recommend this product.

Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire A true 50/50 dual sport tire, the Heidenau K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Heidenau K60 Scout dual sport tires deliver better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well. The chevron style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates. This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction. A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish. TL Tubeless TT Tube Type Tire Please Note The K60 Scout tread pattern will vary depending on tire size.

I just mounted these up on DL1000 so I am not sure how long they will last. But grip on gravel roads and asphalt back mountain roads are excellent. I am very happy with these tires so far.
Yes, I recommend this product.
