Hey guys! I am new on this forum just as I am new to a motorcycles. Currently restoring a Dnepr K-650 and soon I will need to buy some tyres as the ones that are on the bike at the moment are 30 or so years old ... wouldn't risk riding on them. So I have started to look whats available to buy and discovered to my surprise that there is not many to choose from. After spending hours reading every piece of information on this forum I am still not sure what to do... most of the posts on tyres here are over 10 year old and many of the links are not working...
So to the point: Have found to buy Mitas SW-07 3.75-19 61 P Rear TT NHS (https://www.oponeo.c...ASABEgLBuvD_BwE
) which are the right size but will the load index 61 be enough for a heavy old motorbike and a heavy rider? What tyres are you riding on? any advice will be welcome
At the Speeds the Dnepr will attain, I would run old tires till they wore out..
I have even older tires than that on the Farm here.... they are weaterchecked terribly... I never had a WeatherCheck tire Fail except by Nail or Road Hazard...
Don't go over 100MPH tho!!! LOL
Let me add that I have ridden on Flat tires with my Dnepr... If the Hack tire is Flat... it will be difficult to discern.
if the front tire is Flat... about the same... but it will stear Heavy..
Flat rear tire... dances quite a bit, and ya Know something is amiss... slow down, and ride it on home.... deal with the Broken Spokes later!!!!
