With what Kenda calls a 20% dirt / 80% street mix, the K761 is the more street focused tire in Kenda’s dual sport tire lineup. Able to corner and brake like a full street tire, the K761 is nonetheless capable of comfortably exploring gravel and dirt roads. Exactly what an adventure touring tire should be like.

  • Remarkably durable nylon ply construction delivers total riding confidence
  • DOT approved
  • Heavy duty construction designed to withstand the demands of off road riding
  • Advanced compound design for extra braking and cornering traction
  • Tubeless type

High Milage, but Slippery When Wet

Pros: 8,000-10,000 miles easy, Durable for light off road use, Deep Tread Pattern Cons: Lack of traction in wet conditions can be hazardous, Takes 10+ miles to warm up. This is a good tire for touring and commuting. But if riding the likes of the The Dragon go w/a softer compound tire.

K761

These tire were on my KLX650 when I bought it and had ended up replacing them with 60% tread left due to the constant spinning and slidding. They hook up good on dry clean asphalt , but anything else was just plain scary , wet was outright dangerous , just too hard a compound . If you stay on the street and in good weather they'll work good and last a long time , just nothing I'd want for dual sporting . Hardest tire I've ever taken off.

K761 is a long-lasting affordable rear tire

I used 130/80 K761s on DR650. Got 6K+ miles of abuse. Traction is ok to move you in sand or mild mud, but this is no knob. Pair with a mild front DOT knob and explore all over. These rears resist the chunking and squirm that kills knobs and semi-knobs. This is a great affordable rear tire for a long DS trip.

Slippery when wet!

I've got 3,500 on the rear tire and it is wearing well. These can be forced to slide at will when dry and will surprise you when wet. Clean dry pavement is just fine but they seem to slide on the paint and any sand on the corners. I've actually grown to like it and spin it a little whenever I get a chance. I ride 99% street so can't comment on dirt. Good tire for the price.

Kenda K761

One of the strongest sidewall tires I've ever used. Had to ride it about 15 miles with a flat and the tire still did not break the bead.

Virtually impossible to install- had to take to a shop. First wet day I slid twice. Not too happy with it so far.

Good tire

I have 3600 miles on 761's right now. Just finished a 1000 mile four day ride in VA, NC, and TN. All curvy pavement. No slides or surprises. Very predictable. I have also found these to be really good on DRY dirt. And pretty darn good in gravel too. On pavement I run 28 lbs. rear and 26 lbs. front. For dirt I LOVE their 760 TrackMasters. They really hook up great in Colorado rocks and SC dirt trails.

Decent street tire for my KLR

I've got two sets of rims for my KLR. One set has full knobbies and the other is meant for my road tires. I was putting high dollar road tires on but I'm now commuting with it so I figured I'd save some money and try these. So far, so good. They are smooth on the freeway and also grip and corner great for spirited weekend rides in the twisties. I wouldn't hesitate to take them on the trail as long as I'm not expecting extremely loose conditions or mud.

K761 Rear Tire

Got 16,000 miles on the first one on my KLR650. This is the 2nd one. I'm a conservative rider and use my bike for my daily 50 mile round trip commute to work. 100% street riding in every kind of weather. But I've had the same problem as others have reported with the 761 front tire cupping out. I'm running the 761 on the rear with a Shinko tubeless on the front. Working very well.

K761

Great tire, I haven't ridden in the wet yet but the dry traction is much, much better than the OEM tire. I put this on my KLR the day before my motorcycle safety course. I had no issues in stopping in the required distance. I will purchase the same tire for the front when the original wears out. I run 28 psi on the back and that seems good for my weight and riding style.

Just like it said- unbeatable on and off road performance! Amazing on the road, and pretty good on the dirt! I am very happy with this set of tires.

Air them down for wet and dirt!!!

Had these for about 2,000km now. Air them WAY DOWN for dirt and wet and you will be pleasantly surprised. They are VERY responsive to tire pressure changes. I run 22, 26 on the street/hwy (cold) - this runs it up to about 26, 32 when hot. A little rough but no evident wear at this point. For fire roads I take it down to 14-16 front, 18-20 rear and it makes a HUGE difference for traction and ride. Night and day.

best tire per $$

Second time I bought this tire after trying several others I am back to buying the Kenda. When its new it hooks up well, the wide profile corners better then other tires giving more road performance to my KLR. At the low price I buy two for the price of a Scorpion AT and get more miles / $ while getting new tread more often. No chunking, cracking, or uneven wear, even fully loaded on a 3000 mile mexico ride with dirt trails, gravel roads and tight asphalt corners.

Ok in the dry

I had a pair of these mounted on a bmw r80. The front is great and still usable after 5000 miles but the rear is getting pretty worn. I ride a lot of gravel which they work fine for but the wet traction is awful. I ride pretty conservatively in the wet but these tires are still very unpredictable.

They're cool looking!

I bought a pair of these to put on a 1973 CB750 Honda all black MadMax bike I'm creating. They were the right size and they look Cool! Who could ask for anything more?
