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
  • H Speed rated for speeds up to 130 MPH

 

**Note: Size 100/90-16 is P-Rated for speeds up to 93 MPH

Kenda k761

So far I am very happy with the tire, I have about 250 miles on it with no sign of wear. I was off road in Michigan this week end, had no trouble climbing rocky hills or riding rough trails. Did not do as well in soft sand, or it might have been operator error

Nobody will beat this tire!

This is the first rear tire I've purchased aftermarket since purchasing my KLR650 new in 2007. The price I paid, plus the dual-purpose design, makes for an excellent buy. It's too soon for me to really rate the tread life on this tire, but the overall handling and stability with this tire is ten-fold compared to the OEM tire that came with my original bike purchase. I'd purchase another tire like this one, but I don't have much need for a second until this first one wears out.

Really good mostly street tire

If you ride mostly on the pavement and you don't want to spend a lot on tires, these are for you. These are great for the price.

Perfect choice

Great price, great all-around tire. Quiet on the road. Stable in the dirt. I found the best tire for my KLR.

dual sport

I am trying these on my BMW R80g/s. They seem to be good, lower tire pressure for dirt and they are good there. I have run a few trips loaded and a few 90mph spurts on the HWY, and they seem to be wearing well. They are fine in the rain, corner predictable along with high speed cornering. Tire pressure is a must. I am running stock pressure and 20-25psi ish, in the dirt.

I'm Giddy !

Last year I put a set of Kenda K270's on my KLR650. I was riding the Rubicon, Mendicino Nat'l forest and the wide open spaces of Wyoming. Great tire in the dirt but because of the aggressive knobs it took all the fun out of the bike on the road. Any lean angle at all was like riding on giant marshmallows. The tire wore well considering so I'm trying the K761's. Talk about a fun little bike now! I can drag the pegs at 55 mph on tight cloverlead on/off ramps and take giant swooping corners at 90mph. It’s like I'm riding on rails. I've only had the tires on for two weeks but I've clicked off 2,000 miles - all highway with an average speed of 80 - 85. Here's the trick to all these tires. If you're going to ride on the road you've got to keep the air pressure up around 32 -34 psi. Tube tires lose air a lot faster than a tubeless tire - mine drop 3 psi/week so it doesn't take long before you're bombing around on 18 psi tires wondering why they don't handle well and wear out quickly.

Update

I have now clicked off 4,000 miles in four weeks on this tire. Last weekend I had an opportunity to spend some time in the Tahoe National Forest. Much of the soil looked like thick moon dust. I thought for sure the tires weren't going to get me up the trails. The KLR 650 was working hard in first gear and tires never slipped - couldn't believe it! Rear obviously showing some wear but I'll bet I get close to 10K out of these tires. See my comments below under "I'm giddy".

Excellent tire!

I'm very pleased with this tire. Great performance on the pavement and off-road. Equal to or better than the Scorpions I had on...at half the price. I've got about 4000 miles so far...not even through the wear bars. This tire will go anywhere I have the cojones to take my bike. It's a true dual-sport tire.

vehicle test driver for chrysler proving grounds

Rear tire has good grip even at 41 lbs of air in sand . corners fine ; not as noisy as Kenda brand made for dual sports, no problems on wet pavement , feels very safe even running a little hot in curves, close to 1000 miles with no signs of wear at present time; easy to mount by myself with mechanic supervision as it was my first time ever mounting my own tires!...Kim Jennings

Amazing Tires!

I would give this tire superior marks. Great tire for the money! I ride a KLR650 which can feel top-heavy but with these tires, I never fear flying around corners, even on uneven backroads. They grip great! I have only had them for a few months so I can't answer to wet riding or tread life but I expect them to be consistently good in all categories listed.

Oh Kenda K761 How I love thee

The Motorcycle Superstore is the best. Super easy online catalog with 1000's of products. I found these Kenda K761 tires, and they are awesome at half the price of other tires. As they say "Mother will only ride on the Kenda's". Thanks Motorcycle Superstore, see you soon.

Kenda K761 Dual Sport Rear Tire, Great Bang for the Buck

I ride an XR400R and this is a great tire. Bought both front and rear at the same time, under $100. I cannot tell the difference between these and my Avon Gripsters. These are great tires. I waited to for the rain (light rain) to review these tires and rode around on road at about 75% throttle around the corners. The tires didn't break loose or slide. The tires feel solid. The tires have decent bite on loose dirt, good enough for level treks but not if you are doing anything serious. Looking at the tires after mounting and spinning the wheels the sidewalls have some deflection but it doesn't affect performance. Can't say anything about the tread life but seem like they will last.
