    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.

    Great tire on the cheap (DR650)

    I spooned this on my DR650 after running Shinko 705s front and rear. Since my 705 front still had tread left, I just swapped out the rear. Considering how much better it is offroad than the 705, it really isn't much worse on the road. These tires are really slick when you first get them, and I locked up the rear tire on almost every stop sign I came to. Once I got a couple hundred on it, it's been great. Offroad, you get a ton of traction in gravel, light sand, etc. Through deep sand, it's as good as any other tire is on my DR650, which is to say that it's still a massive pain. For the price, I'll probably wear out a few more sets.

    Not happy with this tire on my CRF250L

    After getting 4500 miles out of my stock tire, I got this one to replace it thinking that I should get about 3500 or so. I have about 100 miles on it so far and it is showing horrible wear. No broken lugs yet though. Also, it is squirrely as heck on the street. It has scared me more times in 100 miles than the stocker did in 4500 miles. I will not buy another unless I see drastic improvement soon.

    Not bad

    It takes a long time to break in this tire, about 150 miles. After that the tire is great. I have a 09 KLR with bags top case, and with a full load and me "180lbs" the tire had good grip in the dirt and on dirt roads, but when I first got the tire it was bad on the streets until it was broke in. It took about 150 miles. But now the tire is good and for that price I would get another one.

    Not for use on pavement

    I've had several sets. First, the side knobs chewed a hole on my chain guard and hit my Vance and Hines hard enough to dent the can. Excellent tire for off-road but frightening on the pavement if you ride harder than grandma. The rear tire lets go without warning once you get to the side knobs.

    good tire for a good price

    I mounted one of these after wearing out a 606 on my DRZ. I like this tire much better. I ride on gravel roads and pavement with a few occasional trails. I'll probably buy another. Thanks Motorcycle Superstore and Kenda!

    Value again

    Excellent value. Had a set of these tires on my KLR 650 and liked them, a lot, except for road noise on the highway. This set is for my DR 350 and they are terrific for it since it's used a lot more off pavement. Good traction but not destructive to our dry roads.

    Great tire for the money

    I put a set of these on a KLR650. Great tire for the gravel logging roads in our area. I got about 2500 miles before the rear tire "squared off" due to the street use, but this was expected. I just spooned on another rear as the front tire was still in good shape.

    Nice Compromise

    I mounted the tire on my '07 KLR 650. Wider than the previous tire there was some minor rubbing on the inside chain guard. Pulled the guard away and wore off about an 1/8" no issue. So far it is a big improvement off road over the Pirelli MT-60 I took off. A little buzz on the tarmac but nothing horrible.

    I would recommend this tire highly. Put it on my '04 xr650l and it blends with all conditions very well. Don't know what people are talking about being noisy.
