Great over all tire

I use these tires on pretty much all my on-/ff road bikes.The tire handles excellent on pavement. Sticks to the the rocks and hard packed dirt like a trials tire. Does just fine in just about everything. Only in deep sand and i assume in a deep mud it is noticeable worse than real knobby. The tire life is okay.

Kenda 270 rear tire

For my dualsport riding in the southern Appalachians (probably around 50/50), this is a terrific tire. Works fine on the lovely paved twisties that abound in this area, and handles the forest roads and occasional single track with no drama. I've had about 5 or 6 of these tires on the back of my DR650, and I generally get around 3500 miles out of them. One summer up in Maine I got 5500 out of one. No idea why that one lasted so long! Anyway, I'll continue to use the 270 (installing a new one tomorrow), and I highly recommend them. Especially for the price.

K270 rear

This is my third K270 rear. Great traction in just about everything except ice. Very predictable on the highway, they just keep gripping no matter how far you want to lean. Mileage is pretty good for the money, I usually get about 3500 (80/20 highway to dirt) miles out of a rear and could easily leave the tire on for another 1000. I tend to be heavy on the throttle when I commute and when I'm cruising gravel roads so they hold up well. Stock Metzler didn't make 900 miles and it was completely slick. Great Tire, great price. Buy some.

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.
