Quality in production slipping a little
I've noticed with this last set of Twin-Duro's the tread is wearing faster than my last set with similar riding and these were required quite a bit of counterweight to balance them compared to previous sets I've owned. C'mon Continental... step up your game.

Easy to mount well with tire irons and works well on dirt, gravel and asphalt
The first one seemed to work well even at 60 percent worn, so I wanted to try a new one.
Works well

Newly Installed
Ordered a set for our 2007 F650 GS to allow for more off road ventures (groomed dirt, gravel fire service roads). So far have limited mileage on pavement but the ride quality doesn't seem to be any more harsh than the street tires they replaced. Will be going to Tellico Plains to March Moto Madness to get them broken in. I suspect they will suffice as these are a popular dual sport tire used on many bikes.

Trying my hand at a new bike w/ new tires
Picked up a CB500X & could not wait to test it out on a rally ride - knew it was going to be a mudfest so went with these. Had heard only good things about them & they lived up to it.

Mud was a breeze. Surprised how well they felt on the road.

Replaced the OEM Dunlop’s on my Africa Twin for some more off-road traction and I was expecting to loose some on road performance but I was wrong. Theses tires are awesome. They turn in extremely well for a knobby. There have been numerous times where I felt I’m coming in too hot for a knobby tire and they have yet to do anything more than surprise me how well they perform on tarmac. They are smooth and quiet and work great off road as well. I’m getting about 3500 miles out of rear and repacking front every other rear. There are tons of adventure tires to choose from but after running tkc’s why try anything else.

Great dual sport tire
I have been using this tire for several years now, mostly off pavement. It is great off pavement and on, has lots of grip. I match it up with a TKC front tire. I ride two up most of the time so that might effect my mileage, about 3,000mi. I replace themlong before the wear bars. Still pretty good for the price and performance. I ride a BMW R100GSPD.

Don't skimp on tires...one accident will do more damage than money saved
I use these on my KTM 1190 even though I am on street 50% of the time and there are likely better tires for the street. Never-the-less, on street I may accelerate hard, corner in dry weather fairly aggressive and hit some high speeds and they perform just fine. My real concern is dirt.

It's a big bike and I thrash the thing pretty well even though I am not that big and strong. Since I am not that big and strong, I wanted the lower version 1190 (Standard) and immediately changed the tires to TKC 80's. I wanted as much traction as possible in the dry pack, mud, single track and sand. The TKC's are legendary for traction and reliability. Their weakness is the soft compound that makes them so good means they have a short life. In 50/50 riding, I get 6,000 miles on the front and 3,500 on the rear. I can get more off rear if I am not concerned about the dirt traction. Anyway, my buddy has an 1190R and saved some money by going with a longer life tire...he's constantly getting wiggly in the mud, getting stuck and tipping over. He's got broken mirrors, scratches on tank and exhaust and simply lacks confidence in the mud. So... he bought the baddest Adventure bike out there and then is constantly looking for the easy route because he's crippled it with cheap, long life tires! He also can't hop a log because he loses traction on the approach.

Perfect KLR650 Utah Rear Tire
Purchased this tire about a year ago and no complaints. It's great for anything in Utah: road, dirt, sand, red rock, and even snow and ice (which I don't recommend).

Good traction poor life on a powerful Adventure bike
Great traction, a little noisy but not bad. Only last 2,300 miles on my 1190R which is too bad. Will look for another tire that holds up better to my 70-road 30-dirt riding.

This is a great dual sport tire!
The TKC 80 is a very good all around dual sport tire with good traction on both wet or dry pavement and excellent off road traction in gravel, dirt or sand. The mileage isn't as much as I'd like, but the tire's versatility and all around traction makes it my tire of choice.

I have a 2017 KLR650 and need tires. But the OEM Dunlop tires are tube-type. I am liking the TKC80. But can I switch to tube-less? I'm not sure of the implications and if it makes sense.
Rick M on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will have to run a tube within a tubeless tire, since you have spokes. You could also install a "mousse" (pronounced Moose) , which is a firm/rubberized liner that takes the place of a tube. Benefit it that you'll never get a full-on flat with a mousse. Tubeless commonly only applies to a cast wheel.

Will these fit properly on my KTM 1190 Adventure? I am a bit confused about the coding on the tire size as my stock size shows 170/60ZR-17 on the rear and the TKC80 comes in 170/60B-17 (72Q). Is the 72Q a load and speed rating? If so what's the difference from the ZR and B coding?
DARIUS L on Oct 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They should fit the Q rating says dont go over 100 mph. I have though, still here! This tire has awesome grip and it really good off-road. I recently tried a Shinko 805 and I continue to long for the TKC80. Under some throtle the Shinko steps out really quick where the TKC80 has a nice predictable feel on dirt.
when i choose the correct size for my KLR 650- 130/80 17, it says tubeless. Do I need to get a tubeless rim to install this tire?
Benjamin G on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No need for a different rim, you can just use your regular 17" tube. I'd recommend replacing your tubes when you do the tire change just as a piece of mind. Save the old tube as a spare.
will this fit my 2001 XR650R ?
Anthony B on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I guess will fit front a rear wheel, just buy the correct size and the TKC80 Tube Type, cause your bike use tubes.

For XR650R It seems will be

Front Tire Size:

TKC80 3.00 -21 51S Tube Type

Rear (Tire) Size: original size is 4.5 inch,

Conversion to metric

- 110/80 -18 58Q Tube Type
or
- 120/90 -18 65R Tube Type

If you want to use Tubeless tires then you will have to change your wheels for spkoed motard wheels.
