Great tires

You can run these front or rear. There are arrows located on the side wall or walls. One direction for front the other direction for rear. Be sure to mount them in the correct direction. My front tire was originally mounted in the wrong direction, it caused a mushy feeling when breaking. Much better when correct. I found that the air pressure is a little more critical for a nice ride than a modern style tire. Just bellow Kawasaki's recommended air pressure was best for my 78 KZ650. I got 6500 miles out of the rear before replacing and I should get 12K out of the front. If you only want performance and not a vintage look I'd go w/ a set of Bridgestone BT45 Battleax tires.

Great price and it came quick. I've been buying k-81's since 1976 for my Norton. I have never felt the urge to try another tire. I know it's a very old tire but I like the tread design.

K81 Dunlop

I've got this tire on the rear of my 81 BMW R65. Went to the north GA. mountains 2 weeks ago and gave it hell, 2 roads in particular one was HWY 129 between Cleveland and Blairsville, the other was Wolf Pen Gap Road between HWY 129 and Suches. The tire worked really well until I got it hot on Hwy 129 at high speed then it got kinda unpredictable in high speed turns. With that said I would buy this tire again but not expect it to handle like a Michelin.

Good thing they work well

I'm glad that these tires perform so well being that they're the only tires I can find in 4.10 19 for my old Triumph.

The way to go !

Having had no faith in the stock Avon's that came on my 2011 Royal Enfield G5, I put the 410 K81 on the rear and the difference was like night and day. Couldn't be happier!

Makes an old Brit bike handle in the manner that God intended. Not crotch-rocket sticky, but light, nimble, and tough enough to go anywhere. Go try wet grass under fat crotch-rocket tires.

Nice fit

Mounted on the rear of my CB 750 - 600 miles on this tire in both wet & dry conditions. Hangs on to the road well.

Dunlop K-81 rear tire

Put the K-81 rear / and K-70 front on my 1974 650 Yamaha. During our old race team era, we used the K-81's on our endurance road race bikes. The tires worked perfectly in all types of conditions. For vintage middleweights this is one of the best.
