Best light dual-sport tire out there

These tires out perform trials tires in every situation. I love them, especially on MOAB rocks. In technical riding we are at 8-12 pounds depending on the surfaces. At that pressure, they're quite good in sand. Gooey rubber gives a fabulous grip. They are totally adequate on the road. You'd be a fool to push any dual sport tire in heavy cornering but I have had my bike nearly on the pegs...and the felt fine.

Hooks up on Rocks - trials like

I like running these on the slick rock in Moab. I was turned on to these tires about 8 years ago by a local shop calling these a "poor man's trials tire" The rubber is really soft and they hook up similarly to a trials tire for about 1/3 the cost especially when running lower tire pressure. I've run these on a KTM350, XR650R and KTM200 and hook up well and are quiet on the highway. The rear wears quickly with aggressive riding. I don't like how they handle if you are really going to aggressively attack corners on the Highway. However, if you are going to use them for technical rocks, they are my #1 choice. Sand & mud, performance is fair.

Works Great... love it!

Put this on my XR650L and so impressed decided to try it on my KTM 300XCW. Awesome! Four rides in the dirt now - hard pack, rocks and gravel. 200 miles about and hardly any wear, yet grips great. Would pick this over a trials tire in the Rockies. Might pack up if you get in some gooey thick mud!

This is the best tire for the money that I have found. It has a great tread pattern and lots of grip, off and on road, mud or hard pack.

Kenda 270

I have ran this tire on Kawasaki 250, Kawasaki 650, xr Honda, xrl honda. Sizes 4.60 x 17,4.60 x18, 5.10 x 18. Used this tire from southeast U.S. to the Prudhoe Bay. YES, I have had VERY expensive other tires to lay down low in the corners and go away in 2k miles. I use these for the long haul all around riding.

So far, So good

I run this tire on a Suzuki DR350. On the street it runs fine, not great but this is not a street tire. On the dirt it does well on hard and slightly loose soil. It is not great in sand but we will run paddle tires in this situation. No idea how it is in the mud since the drought has left the area around my home bone dry. Overall this is a good tire for the price if you have realistic expectations for it. Street-Good (not great but not poor either) Hard dirt- Good. Sand- Poor-Fair Mud- unknown.

Economical versatile rear DS tire on DR650SE

K270 gives good mile per dollar. Gets DR thru rough sand, mud, etc. Center knobs can chunk if abused. I often get 6K miles from 130 until about bald, if center doesn't chunk. Tends to be long-wearing. I got 3K miles on stock tire. Wasn't nearly as good dirty as K270. Sides of K270 can feel squirmy on pavement, but it hasn't ever broken loose from cornering under throttle, except in the dirt. No trouble with K270 beads, but I use lube and levers that work well.

Kenda 270

On my KLX250 the tire felt a little squirm in corners which took some getting used to, but it held traction on the asphalt. I think this is the soft knob flexing. I got over 5K miles on the set. The front is worn, but the back may have couple K miles before it has to be replaced. The only time I was disappointed in traction was in a deep sandy arroyo. It seemed to just dig compared to a D606. A wider tire and big knobs would have helped. I will be putting a set of 270s on my DRZ400E.

Kenda K70 Tire

This is the second Kenda K-70 and the first lasted about 4,800 miles. It was really worn with this mileage. As for the performance, it works very well in dirt or on the street, even wet. It wears much better than the Shinko Golden Boy and does much better in the dirt/sand. I recommend this tire and that you buy it from Motorcycle Superstore as they have great prices and service.

Great 60/40 tire. Cleans out well. Once broken in its a good, dry road tire. Good grip for lifting the front in.

Good Tire

After running the TW42 Bridgestone, going to the 270 was light stepping out of darkness and into the daylight. The difference off road is very significant. When we get any rain the clay here turns to owl snot and you might as well be riding an ice cube on a buttered butt with the trail wings. The Kenda hooks up and bites like you'd hope a dual sport tire would on the clay. Great tire, it gives up nothing at half the price.

Seems to be working well, especially for the money

I don't have a lot of hours on this yet, but so far it does what I expected. Works fine on the road- pretty good on trails and quite good on gravel roads. It doesn't have the trip of the Michelin X11 trials, but cheap and a lot better on the road. For a dual sport tire it is quite good.

Kenda K270 Front/Rear

Bought front/rear set. Price was very good. Had local shop mount them. Quieter on pavement than stock Dunlops. Bike seems more "twitchy" on the gravel roads than before, but overall traction seems good. Seem to grip well on pavement. Rear tire 'drifts' predictably when sliding corners on dirt roads. Have only put about 125 miles on them so far, so can't speak to durability. Initially very pleased with the purchase.
