Old thread revisited by newbie...

17 years running Duro Median HF903/904 on my KLX650. Dual sporting with others running Kendas and Bridgestones as well as playing supermoto with friends on DRz400, XR650R, and even an Aprilia 550 without any problems. Tires stuck well on pavement and had decent mud/dirt/gravel performance. I replaced both front and rear at around 4000 miles, the rear not digging in as I wanted and the front cupped bad enough to be not worth trying to push for another rear.

So the Duros are a consideration for dual sport. I now have them on a KLX250S as well and may try them on the Zuma 125 although I am tempted for a set of Kenda 761s on the scooter - I took a new set off the 250, no way they were a good tread for off road based on both my opinion and others. They look like they'd be good on the Zuma though.

Not so sure I want a pure street tire.

So I gues, what's new and gives best wear performance for the money?

Road, sport and "dual sport" An update is needed.

Just replaced my back tire from a bopper to city grip and I have to say I am really enjoying the stability of the city grip better than the bopper I had previously.

Hello guys...……

I have a 2017 Zuma 125 and like to know which is the best tire for the streets (where I live , there are some pot holes and black snakes on the streets) but most of the time I managed to avoid them. My bike is 99 % use on the city streets speeds ranging from 0-57 MPH so what is the best tire for my bike 1) Michelin city grip or 2) Michelin Power Pure SC ? I just got a OEM Kenda tire gone bad 2 days ago as it was losing air as it was plugged twice last summer and has 3,100 miles on it. I am looking to replace the tires soon for my safely.


Thanks guys

Since nobody responded to my post so I went ahead and ordered the Michelin power pure SC tires and 2 weeks ago received them. I was surprised that the tires are of much higher quality than the factory Kendas as you can tell by carefully looking at the construction done inside the tires and the beads as well as the side walls and threads. The new tires are "reinforced" but not sure of what that means. The Yamaha Zuma and Honda PCX are quality made bikes and its well worth paying extra to put on quality or well made parts for them resulting even higher quality scooter.
