Came on my ktm 690 r I have 4000 miles on them with maybe 1000 left. Ride it every day. TRY to stay out of the throttle. Way better then expected on road. Can all but drag pegs before sliding on pavement. A little loose in sand. No problems anywhere else other then in rain and high winds. Like I said, every day. Great hookup in almost all conditions. Will use again.
My riding partner uses the MT16 on the rear of his KTM520 exclusively, claiming they work really well and last longer than almost anything else. He's been telling me I should try one for quite a few years now. Being a hardcore Dunlop guy, I have thought the MT16 was too old school to even consider. But since I usually go through 4+ sets of tires per year I finally gave in and decided to try one to see if it might last a bit longer as he said. As much as I hate to admit it, I have found that the MT16 does work quite well, and without a doubt lasts much longer. It sure surprised me.
mounted with the proper amount of difficulty, showing the quality construction of the tire, fit properly, even with heavy duty tube ( Im sick of flats ) and looks Awesome !! Will not run it until next season, but Im still impressed just by the reviews alone.... That many people with positive reviews cant be wrong.......
2nd time for me with this tire, so no surprises.
Narrower than most knobbies, and taller too, so the bigger circumference changes the gearing somewhat.
The side wall has a step/shoulder at the rim to help prevent pinch flats, but that makes mounting a little more difficult.
The only way it could be better is if it mounted itself and lasted for 10k miles.
