Good Tire
Just finished up a 700 mile 50/50 trip running this tire along with many others too. I was on an XR and others were on DR and KLR.
It's a nice tire and held up really well, but had a tendency to wander a bit more than I would have liked in softer conditions. It handles bumps, rocks, roots, etc. very well and ran extremely well on the street. Tread life is great after the ride and I would definitely run them again and again at this price. One guy on our trip had 2 flats on his front, but no one else had any issues with it.

My experience
I ride approximately 70% gravel and dirt/rock roads and currently have over 4500 miles on my current rear tire including the New Mexico Back Country Discovery Route. My bike handles, turns and stops better with these tires than any others I've tried on all surfaces. I have already purchased my second one and will probably never purchase anything else as long as these are available.

Great tire very smooth on pavement and grips well in dirt, not bad in mud but not great, if riding in a lot of mud recommend more aggressive tire

Great set of tires
Haven’t installed these yet, but I liked them on my XR650. Got about 5000 mike out of the last set and they work well for what I ride on when off road and handle about like any knobby tire on the road.

Very nice off road tire
Very nice tire for the off road/trails in the western part of Washington State. It is very wet and rocky here with mountains to climb. I was totally shocked at how well the tire preformed in this terrain. All my riding buddies thought there was no way this tire could provide the traction required for our style of trial riding but it did. Also, most people think the tread loads up with mud/dirt and looses traction, I did not find that to be the case. Although the mud in the mountains here have lots of sand in it so it does not pack or stick as much as the mud in other areas. Overall great tire, tread life is great, still have it on after about 700 miles with only a small amount of wear showing. Braking performance is excellent as well, off road and on road. I ride 99% off road. Anyone who rides behind me says the tire throws a large rooster tail of dirt/rocks/terrain so let your buddies know! I have the tire on a 2015 KTM EXC350F

great tire and price
Replaces stock trail wings with the kenda 270 and the 270s are a night and day difference better and make my dr650 much more enjoyable offroad. Great tire, especially for the price.

For the 3.00x21 (57P) Tube Type Kenda K270 Dual Sport Front Tire. How deep is the tread on it when it's brand new? When I bought my bike it came on it and I'm not sure if I should replace it.
Seth P on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They come with quite a bit of tread if there's still the dimples in the center of each of the knobs you should be ok. This is a great tire but the front doesn't clean out well in heavy mud otherwise it's awesome tire for the money
What size would you recommend for Husqvarna fe350s 2016?
Terry H on Jun 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We'd recommend the stock tire size.
Stock tire sizes are:
front 80/100 R21
rear 110/100 R19
What is the equivalent size for a 80/100-21?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: 80/100-21 converts to 2.75/3.00-21
According to the Kenda site, their 3.00x21 tire does not come in a 57P, rather they have a 51P. Do we assume that the 57P description here at Rocky Mtn is a typographical error?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Run the tire that works for the rider. 3.00 is fine, have fun we are.
Should I get a 2.75x21 or a 3.00x21 for 06 crf450x it says 2.75-3.00 but which is better / closest to stock?
Brannon H on Sep 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You will want to get the 3.00x21, which is the stock size for your machine.

BEST ANSWER: I have KLR so not able to answer your specific question. I did have to replace my K270 front early due to severe cupping and severe noise.
One full knob one half knob and no knob. Repeated all the way around. Started at about 2500. Suffered with it until 5000 and replaced it.
What is the equivalent size for a 80/100-21?
Jason Y on Mar 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It looks like 2 3/4"-3.00", I tried to put on a link, but this site won't let me. Google transcamimports tire size conversion.
2015 klr stock tire is 90/90/21 is 300x21 same size or will it work?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 3.00 is equivalent to a 90/90 so it will fit.
What sizes does the front K270 now come in? Your web page doesn't show the available sizes without entering in the bike that it is intended for. This is a problem since your site will only show me street tires for a dual sport bike.
SCOTT W on Jan 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It looks like we only have this tire in a 2.75 x 21, 3.00 x 21, and 3.25 x 21.
