TE 610FE rear tyre size
« on: July 03, 2019, 11:05:47 am »
I have to put a new rear tyre on my new to me Husky. The manual states 140/80 18. Currently there is a Dunlop D 606 in 130/90 18 fitted. @chopperpilot included a new D606 in the sale but this one is 120/90 18. I would like to stick with the 606.

I understand the differences in sizes but don't know how the different sizes will affect the handling, grip and other things.

What are you running on your bikes and do you venture away from the recommended sizes?

Cheers Lars

120 or 130 D606 is fine. ;)

You can fit a 140, but not all 140s width are equal.

I have found the Michelin T63s to be slightly narrower for the same size tyre. Could be different profiles?

If you fit a 140, check the swingarm and chain guard clearance.

I have a Mitas CO2 120 on the KTM. It's width is equal to 130.

Ditto. See what suits best in width etc. Tires are not all the same.
