    Good value

    Pros: great traction on the street and off road. Cons: short(er) life span and slight freeway growl. Overall: better than any other option.

    The name say's it all

    Bought these for my KLR. The first thing I tried was hard/emergency braking. The gripster outperformed the Shinko, Kenda and Bridgestones I've run in the past. The rear tire gripped very well unlike the TW22's. I haven't run them long enough to give a more detailed review but so far I am very happy with the tire.

    Great tire for DR-650

    I have had these tires on my Suzuki DR 650.This tire has been great on the street and on forest service roads. If you ride in the mud you need a different motorcycle not a dual sport a least not a 650. So the Avon Gripster is a good choice for pavement and gravel roads.

    These are by far the best tires for KLR. I've tried different brands with none lasting more than 3,000 miles. I'm going on 6,000 now and still have half my tread left. I'll be buying another set when these are done.

    I have a 2005 KLR 650 which I bought new which now has 34,000 miles on it at this time. I have tried several brands of tires, all gave me only 3,000 miles at best. I switched to these tires two years ago and they are great. Sure grip in all conditions, even with a passenger, and you will get about 5,000 miles plus on them with tread left. Will get another set as soon as my current ones wear out. Best tire for the KLR 650's. Period!

    I used it on my DR650 for long time on XR600. XT600, then switched to other brand tires with my KLR. After performing my own R&D I came back to these, due they are proven tested and always the same, great in almost any conditions, wet or dry traction is great. For the price and mileage out off these, is a bang for your dollar. Great in off road conditions except in deep mud. My big singles loves them.

    Excellent Value

    I have a set for a 2009 KLR. Significant vibration and slight rpm reduction at highway speeds. Good Forest Service Road tire. Expectedly wonky in sand and gravel. Excellent 75/25, excluding mud. The name says it all on the road: Gripster. I'd vote these over comparable Metzler & Pirelli! Current set has 3000 without noticeable ware.

    Avon Gripster Rear Tire

    I've ridden this tire for over 11,000 miles on my KLR650 all over Korea, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. This tire holds well in all conditions. I do wish it could handle a bit more mud/dirt. If you are like me and ride 70/30 HWY/Dirt then I suggest this is a good tire. And yes the last tire lasted me over 11K miles.

    Best tires so far!

    Have had these tires for 2 years and they are the best combo for this bike. I ride mostly on the street and it is tight on the corners. I had to change the suspension to be a bit stiffer so I could feel the back tire on the corners but it has worked-out well. Love the front tire and would tell everyone who buys a pair to have them balanced and installed by a pro. They tend to be stiff at first and they are a totally different tire with proper balancing.

    Great for their intended purpose

    I've got a '98 KLR650 with Gripsters front and rear. As a 90/10 tire these are great. No strange cornering behavior on pavement, great traction wet or dry, quiet even at speed and they last forever. Off-road they're passable but not great--the nice road performance doesn't come free.

    great tire but watch for knobbe splits

    I'm a diehard KLR650 gal that goes practically anywhere and everywhere on my bike including the rockies -I'm not talking just fire roads here and when I'm with the guys we hit 120mph. I got the heads up about these tires from a guy that has circled the globe on a KLR and he was right that these are by far the best tire for the money. I've tried the Saharas and Tourances and they went bald in about 2000 miles and had thorn punctures that finally killed them . Not my Gripsters! 4 years and going with thousands of miles and finally I need a new back tire. My big complaint is that the carcass knobbies split in two spots and were superglued together with no further issue-I was told it was a tire mold issue that wouldn't affect the safety. My next 'test tire' will be the Shinko 705 series.

    I won't ride with any other tires

    The Avon Gripsters are the best tires you can get for the Kawasaki KLR650. I ride 100 miles a day to and from work, my KLRs sweet spot cruising speed on the highway is 80 mph. These tires are smooth and grippy, no sliding around like those old Dunlops. The Gripsters handle the twisty mountain roads with no problem, always firm and steady, for the KLR650 the Gripsters are the way to go, try them out, you can thank me later!! Thanks Motorcycle Superstore for the best price out there.

    Avon Gripster rear tire

    Have only had the tire for a little over a month, but first impression is good. The tire looks good on my KLR and the bike seems to handle better in the turns, and ride smoother down the highway than the factory tire. I hope it will prove to be more durable as well. I got 4,600 miles on the factory tire.

    I have used Gripsters on my KLR and Transalp for quite some time. Decent mileage, good grip - good compromise for on-road and off-road (avoiding mud) for both bikes.
