Question Dunlop K695 Tyre

     

I was wondering if anyone has used this tyre and what are their impressions of its wear characteristics and durability in different conditions.
It is a intermediate terrain tyre so should be good for my mainly dry and hard dirt, as well as looser, loamier soil.

This tyre is for my rear end. So if you could post some opinions on this tyre..
Thanks

Geoff,

It came stock on my '02 when I bought it and I think it blows. It would hook up okay, but it wore fast and once you lost the square edge it was almost worthless. IMHO, if I was spending my hard earned dollars on a tire it wouldn't be this one.

I have to agree...The 695 hooks up pretty good when new, problem is that new only lasts like 2 days then it's old.

Spend your money elsewhere IMO.

Here's what mine looked like after a week of riding;




Just kidding. I didn't like this tire that much, so this is what I did to mine after it was toast:

Stand up, don't sit. Hold the front brake, dump the clutch and get it spinning. If you're not quick with the clutch it'll usually loft the front end and then you're going for a ride. Practice make perfect.
