Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.
The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.
Comments On Jan 22, 2012:The K-70 has been around at least 50 years for a reason...It's a great tire, with a universal tread that works for about every use a normal rider could encounter. In the 60's, 70's and 80's THE street /trail tire of choice was the K-70 for everything from 250's Scramblers through Sportsters, touring BMWs through AMA open class flat track miles. (I still have one on the rear of my '63 Sportster!) Ground/burned down to a flat tread profile, there was no better tire for street class NHRA drag racing. In the curves and hills around old Austin there were none better for playing Sunday morning road racer. Long wearing, great traction, all surface and all weather tire... Simply one of the classic best all around tires on the market. Hunt elsewhere for other sizes...
