Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire

A true "50/50" dual sport tire, the Heidenau K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Heidenau K60 Scout dual sport tires deliver better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well.

The "chevron" style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates. This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction. A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish.

  • TL = Tubeless
  • TT = Tube Type Tire

Please Note: The K60 Scout tread pattern will vary depending on tire size.

High mileage tire with good grip. The K60 consistently gets high mileage reviews and has good off road traction as well as good performance on pavement. It is a compromise for both, like any tire. I use a TKC 80 on the front for better off road traction and the K60 on the rear for better mileage. Great combination. May 25, 2015
Great tire for ktm adventure Tire has great grip and wears well, this is my second set and I haven't found a better option overall May 25, 2015
This tire has exceeded all expectations I've used this tire both on and off road. It has preformed very well in all conditions. So far I have roughly 8300 miles them. I'll probably get another thousand on the rear tire. Without doubt, I'll buy another set when they wear out. May 23, 2015
great off and on road I put these on my BMW GS 1150. Looks great and handles awesome. I do a mix of gravel and pavement May 11, 2015
Surprisingly good tire for off road Based on the tread design, I thought this tire was designed more for the street than off-road, but found it to perform surprisingly well in the dirt. Certainly not like a full-on knobby, but pretty effective in loose sand and mud. May 11, 2015
long wearing The Heidenau K60 Scout is all I use on my BMW R1200GSA. They wear well and stick to the road. The rear tire with its center ridge is smooth on the hard roads. The front tire has great traction and wears long also but it does give you a little of the knobby noise and feel on hard roads. May 11, 2015
Excellent tire! Most of my riding time is spent on asphalt, with quite a few off road miles in between. This has been a great tire. I have close to 7k miles on this set. The front has many more to go, the rear is approaching replacement. Stable off road, sticky enough on pavement to drag a foot peg on my Yamaha Super Tenere. The only dislike, is the whine from the front tire at 70 mph. just a little annoying on long road trips, but not unbearable. April 19, 2015
Nothing better.... Ok, I was the biggest sceptic out there on the road worthiness of these tires. Looking at them theres no doubt there good off road, there just so aggressive. Our normal trip to get off road is 70 miles (only 10 on freeway) up the the twisty mountain passes to to be able to do our 75 miles off road and then back. I've been running 80/20's and found they lacked off road, but obviously I could charge up the hill. These I started off the 1st week tentatively, both because they were new and a chunkier tire. By my 3rd trip up, I'm riding just as fast as before, no sense of loss in grip. They are noisier and I get a little vibration at lower speeds (more of a buzz feel through the bars than a serious vibration) and the noise, above 55 it's lost in the wind noise. As for longevity, I can't comment. But if they last me for the season, around 5-6k I'm happy. I have meet guys on the trail that tell me 8k or 11k is the norm. I've even met 1 guy who claimed 18k, I think he must of been on something. As I say, if I can get 6k, anything after that is cream!!!!!! April 16, 2015

John L: Excellent reviews,,,also wanting an all around tire,,,,this one seems to fit the bill Feb 11, 2015

Federico P: These tires perform great for dual purpose riding Jan 31, 2015
Greg W: It wears well, had good traction when pressured low for all except deep sand (cursed be its name) and mud.

Ernest S: I have heard good reviews from friends who compliment the extended life of these tires. Jan 17, 2015
Wallace W: I used a set of these tires in 2013 for a trip to Alaska. They took me all the way to Prudhoe Bay and back from Minnesota. (8700 miles) and still had tread remaining. My R1200 GS was loaded very heavy. Lots of mud on the haul road and lots of rain getting there. I have been riding for 43 years (336,000 miles)

I still have that front tire and would venture to say it has another 3500 safe miles on it.

Going back this year and believe these are the only tires that will do the job
Jan 13, 2015
George D: Have had great experience with these tires. Very good on asphalt and do well off highway. They wear like iron and stick like glue even after 8K-9K miles. Little loud if pressure not just right but otherwise I'm hooked. Jan 11, 2015
Rick M: second set love them Jan 7, 2015
John R: Wanted a proven 50/50 tire that wasn't a knobbie Jan 5, 2015
Paul A: These tires were reputed to be a good balance between traction and longevity. The reputation isn't wrong. So far I have almost 6,000 miles on the tires with plenty left. If I were to guess, they will last about 8k or more. Dec 28, 2014
Dennis R: I looked at many reviews and these are an exceptional tire. Dec 13, 2014
Jeff S: Used K60's in 2013 on a trip to Alaska and Northwest Territories. These are long-wearing tires, good for travel on the rough pavement and gravel roads found in the North country. They work best if aired down a bit on gravel roads, especially the front. Nov 30, 2014
Christopher E: Good reviews. I do like it, but its wet weather performance is not the best. Probably won't buy any more K60s. Nov 26, 2014
Thomas B: They were recommended by a friend Nov 20, 2014
Michael G: Great experience with previous set.
My 650 VStrom went from no fun, to a blast on fire roads.
It does well in gravel and mud till the front fender packs up. (don't ask)
It will do anything you sanely ask of it on the street. It has warned me when I was not acting sane.
I've picked up a screw at 6,000 miles with plenty of tread to go. If it wasn't for the rope plug I know I'd get another K.
Nov 13, 2014
A S: Bet tire for adventure touring. Allows good mileage accumulation on asphalt while providing solid traction on gravel and mild forest trails. Nov 4, 2014
Michael S: Video review Nov 1, 2014
jackie k: realy hooked up my bike gravel trals and asphalt 50 50 is about the sums up tires got about 4500 miles on rear Oct 30, 2014
G Robert D: Great tire, used last year to Prudho Bay. Got about 6000 miles on them. Oct 27, 2014
Evan F: one up'd the size to get the center strip. I feel it wears longer. Oct 19, 2014
Clifton E: I get 8K out of these tires as a 250LB rider on a BMW GS Adventure. Great on the road. Good when you need to leave the pavement for a bit. Oct 17, 2014
Dale M: They wear well. Oct 13, 2014
H E: This is my second set of these tires. I am replacing them for a trip to Mexico.Almost as godo on the street as the Anakee, but a tremendous improvement off road. Tire life looks like it will be better than the Anakee and I still have plenty of life left in my first pair. Oct 12, 2014
Z A: Almost done with my TKC80, trying K60 to see how it performs in the Qatari desert sand. Oct 9, 2014
Kevin M: Needed tires. Oct 8, 2014
Ron L: Did not want to change a rear tire on recent trip to Alaska. Worked perfect with over 10,000 miles on the tire and a few thousand left. Oct 6, 2014
BENJAMIN C: The scout is a good tire. I have used on multiple trips on rough roads. Oct 4, 2014
Monte W: because it is the best wearing rear tire for my around the Americas adventures. Sep 24, 2014

Ricardo K: Perfect German tire. i like german! Sep 16, 2014
David J M: Higher mileage tire. Sep 4, 2014
scott s: Based on the reviews and experiences that other riders I know have had. These tires are great so far. Little more noise but seem great on and off road. Aug 25, 2014
MIKE M: 2nd time running this tire. Aug 25, 2014
Hugh D: Trip around Trans Labrador Highway in Sept. Aug 20, 2014
Keith M: Friends using them and happy so I thought I would give them a try. Aug 15, 2014
Jason C: This tire lasts roughly twice as long as other ADV tires. It has good dry grip on pavement and doesn't shred too bad off-road with 100 HP spinning it up. Only drawback is poor wet pavement traction. Aug 12, 2014
Javier R: good reviews Aug 7, 2014
David B: I have them on my KLR 650 and like them. Aug 7, 2014
Khanh B: 50/50 Aug 3, 2014
William G: Great tire for putting lots of miles on. My rear lasted 12,000 miles on my F800GS. Not too shabby for light off pavement work, but it's no knobby. I'm using the 150, so there is a center strip present. Aug 2, 2014
gerrit m: Past experience, long life(14000 miles) and duel purpose because of the tread pattern Jul 29, 2014
Marvin B: recommended by friends and the many good reviews Jul 27, 2014
Jill O: I went 11k miles on this tire! Well, it almost looks like a slick down the middle. The rear is not bad on the street or off-road. For a 2012 BMW G650GS Sertao, I do not recommend the front tire. The tread pattern is horrible in the dirt. The tire is too skinny, and you need a more aggressive knobby. Jul 22, 2014
Mike S: Best I have found for my BMWR1200GS. Great in all riding conditions dirt or pavement, wet or dry. Jul 22, 2014
Thomas B: Best, most effective, longest riding, dual sport tire I have ever ridden on. Jul 21, 2014
Tim G: I need a more aggressive rear tire with bite for my Tiger 800, as I use it more for fire roads and camping, state and federal land riding off pavement....though I live in a urban city, the bike is mainly my weekend escape vehicle. Jul 21, 2014
Peter S: This is an all round amazing tire. It's a great on-road/off-road tire. Jul 19, 2014
Dave P: Every seems to like these tires, but i wont be able to say untell i get a few miles on them Jul 19, 2014
Mark B: Handles great off-road and on-road. Tire lasts 6500 miles Jul 17, 2014
Jason H: I have heard nothing but good things about these tires. I wanted to try them out for myself. Jul 14, 2014
Tim G: The reviews on these tires were very good so I tried them and I did not like them. On the road they did not feel good when riding aggressive and they vibrated quite a bit. Off road they did ok but not as good as Continental TKC80. They seem to ware like iron but not worth it to me. Jul 12, 2014
David C: I needed a tire that could function effectively on road and off-road. Other dual purpose tires were either too road oriented or had bad road manners. Jul 12, 2014
Garrett C: Good reviews and a friend has had these and come highly recommended. Jul 12, 2014
fou d: Heard lots of good stuff about it. Durability mainly. Jul 9, 2014
Eric S: Multiple reviews, (including revzilla online review), and recommendations Jul 8, 2014
Raymond W: These tires are excellent off road tires that provide a hard sidewall and a center tread that is solid for highway driving. They are just as aggressive as the TCK 80's off-road but give you a more pleasurable slab ride. I highly recommend them as all my buddies do. I will soon install them on my GF's BMW GS. Jul 7, 2014
John S: Worked good the first time around, Ready to do it again. Jul 4, 2014
Matt O: Needed a tire for my DRZ400S Jul 2, 2014
Alan A: I needed a tire that would go atleast 10,000 miles.This did 13,000 miles and still going. Jun 29, 2014
Mark G: works good last long time Jun 17, 2014
William d: Great tires. Replacing one that I've wore out! Jun 17, 2014
G R: These tires are great for mixed riding. I completed a 2k mile trip with slab, tight turns, sections of rough rocky dirt and ball bearing gravel roads. it handled well on everything, i was able to wear off the "chicken scratch" on the pavement and keep traction off road. Jun 13, 2014
PIERRE D: BOUGHT THE SAME TIRE LAST YEAR.
LAST OVER 15000 KM, GRIP IS EXCELLENT, SO IS THE FEEL.
VERY FORGIVING TIRE WHEN PUSHED HARD.
Jun 7, 2014
Chris C: Surprisingly sticky for a high-mileage dual sport tire. My current rear K60 has over 8600 miles with probably about 1k miles left on it. The only reason I'm buying one now is that I've got a 2k mile trip planned on a heavily loaded KTM 990 and I don't want to run out of tire on the trip. Also feels good on fire roads, marbles & rock gardens; sand & silt not so much. May 31, 2014
Jerry S: Traveling to Alaska and by all reviews this is a good 50/50 tire with good mileage ratings May 27, 2014
David Van R: Good off / On Road for large Adventure bikes & Long tread life - IE: 10K Miles rear & 20K miles front May 27, 2014
Edd M: long life and excellent traction. May 24, 2014
andres v: recomendacion May 24, 2014
donovan g: enduroearth
im riding my motorcycle from alabama to the bottom of south america. i needed a good 50/50 tire that would do high mileage
May 24, 2014
Mark S: For a dual sport tire, I got outstanding mileage (12k miles) and the traction in the dirt was quite good. A little noisy on the highway but still tolerable with minimal vibration. Highly recommend this tire for the adventure/ dual sport riders. May 20, 2014
paul m: Look very aggressive. Read reviews. Bought. May 12, 2014
Joseph G: I feel that Heidenau has a tire that will satisfy everything I am looking for in an Adventure tire. Traction on and off the tarmac that other tires just can't do. A big block tires may be superior and more aggressive in mud and loose dirt and rock, but suffer low mileage on the highway. To me, this tire is the best compromise of both worlds. To be able to ride 70/30 with better traction and longer mileage then the best competitors tires. May 10, 2014
Jeanne A: Recommended to me by other adventure riders with my particular bike BMW F650 GS twin. May 7, 2014
Leo S: Wanted a 50/50 tire for my trip to Alaska - still have it on after 8k miles May 6, 2014
Marc W: Reviews for these tires have been outstanding usually 5 stars. I'm trying to find a 60/40 set of hoops, I know I won't be disappointed. May 6, 2014
John K: Good choice for a trip to Alaska. Apr 29, 2014
Gerral S: Better mileage than d606 and still good performance offroad. Apr 26, 2014
Daren T: This will be my 2nd set of Heidenau K60 Scout tires. The current set, has over 14,000 miles on them and still enough wear for another 500 or more. These are good, all around tires. They will keep you planted to the pavement, but allow you to jump on a fire road when needed. I took them up along a number of passes in Colorado, without incident. Highly recommend them. Apr 22, 2014
brian h: good online reviews and friends that currently run this tire Apr 20, 2014
Robert C: I read blogs regarding the which tires are best suited for on and off road riding. Apr 20, 2014
Jack M: Have 10000 miles on the one I have on would probley do another 2 to 3 thousand more but going on a long trip want a fresh rear tire. Apr 19, 2014
Frank W: I am a Metzler man by experience (Tourance, Marathon for street bikes, and many dirt tires whose names I can't recall...), but these Heidenau's had exceptional reviews from well over 200 folks. Apr 18, 2014
Dale M: Research for tires, to replace the tires that came on the bike, I wanted a tire that provided more versatility. The tires seem to be highly recommended. Apr 18, 2014
Keith L: I choose the Heidenau K60 as a result of many good reviews. As with anything you'll always have some bad reviews and felt I needed to try these myself. I'll soon be leaving for the Arctic Circle and needed a tire that could go the distance and still be acceptable for running the Haul Road. Hoping these fit the bill. I'll gladly give a full review after my return. Apr 15, 2014
Kelly P: After doing a little research I could't find many complaints about the Heidenau products which is reassuring. They are a little expensive but if they deliver as advertised I don't mind spending more. Apr 11, 2014
Samuel T: Supposedly long life, aggressive tread pattern. Apr 10, 2014
Philip N: This will be my third Heidi Scout - 24,000 miles and counting on the first two. I'm so happy with it, I'm just keeping a fresh one on hand from now on - no more comparative shopping every time I need a rear. Apr 8, 2014
Robert D: Reputation regarding durability. Sounds like it is a good all around tire. Looking forward to trying it out. And who can beat Revzilla's free and quick shipping? Apr 7, 2014
Mark D: Fast service Apr 4, 2014
Daniel S: My friend made me do it. Good Tires. I got almost 7K miles out of them Apr 2, 2014
Hunter B: Long treat life, great 50/50 tire Apr 2, 2014
Ralph P: Best tire for trip from California to Prudhoe Bay Alaska Apr 1, 2014
scott c: ran them on klr liked ride traction & wear on & off road good balance . Mar 31, 2014
Expressions in glass M: I need an off road capable tire for my Yamaha Super Tenere, and the Heidenau K60 fills the bill! Mar 30, 2014
Luke L: I'm hoping this tire will have low road noise and better handling on the street compared to my nobbies but I don't want to have to change my tires to go off road. I want the complete tire that will let me ride for 200 miles then cruise straight up a hill side. I like utility. Mar 26, 2014
D I: Needed a 50/50 tire that would last as long if not longer than a standard road tire. Mar 25, 2014
Falcon B: Fantastic tire. Long life and great off road and on road capabilities for my F800GS. Mar 22, 2014
James K: I got over 15,000 miles on my last set of K60's. They are a great 50/50 tire and they do everything great. Last year I put a set of these on before I left for Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, 10,000 miles later i was home and still on the same set of tires. I used them for another 5,000 miles commuting. These are my go to tires for ADV riding on my Tenere. Mar 22, 2014
Terry B: Have used these tires on my bmw gs for a couple of years. Far and away the best product out there. Mar 20, 2014
Patrick A: Prior experience. Very good wearing tire. Predictable both on and off-pavement. It will even work in the sand. We've had no issues on wet pavement unlike some of the reviews. And we have actually done many miles on wet pavement. Mar 19, 2014
John D: Because I can do a 8K mi round trip to Inuvik on same tire Mar 17, 2014
Chris O: I bought this tire for the more aggressive tread and the longer tire life that I read others were getting. Mar 15, 2014
Jeremy B: After researching the tires that fit on my BMW R1200 GS i found that this tire will work well for my needs. Mar 13, 2014
Charles G: Longevity and durability performance Mar 8, 2014
Andrew S: It came highly reccomended by MOAB local KLR650 guru Fred Hink I bought a set from him in an emergency in moab and bought another set for my bike once home Feb 25, 2014
James M: reviewed video Feb 21, 2014

Roger S: I liked the tread pattern for my type of riding. Seems to be above average quality. Time will tell after putting some miles on the tire. Jan 31, 2014
Charles T: Great pattern and dual sport use. Rode 23,000 miles in South and Central America and never had a problem. Got up to 9,000 miles per tire and still had tread. Had to change rather than getting more miles because of logistics. Gripped well on and off pavement. Used on KTM 990 Adventure Jan 30, 2014
Michael M: Great Dual Sport tire for my KLR 650. For an aggressive tread dirt road tire they handled like a road tire on the asphalt. I can drag the foot pegs with theses tires not even trying and never a slip. Great tires and the tread life is long lasting. Jan 29, 2014

Scott K: Replacing first set with 6,500 miles on them - rear has around 1-2K left on it at best, front good for another 3-4K or so. Work very well on all off road conditions, particularly gravel; and work well on road. Tires have been about 90% road, 10% off road. Had Tourances before - these are a a huge upgrade, particularly off road. Bike is a BMW F650GS Twin - love this bike! Dec 28, 2013

Charles T: A year ago my friend and I rode KTM 990's through all countries in South and Central America. We had the K60 Scout tires on our bikes. While one can do most of the trip on pavement only, if one goes all the way to Ushuaia, Argentina, there will be some gravel portions. The K60 Scout tires were excellent. I got close to 9,000 miles on the rear tire one time. The front, as with most motorcycle tires, can be switched with every other rear change. We traveled over 23,000 miles on the trip and twice changed only because it was convenient to do so with the tough logistics of getting tires and changing them during maintenance stops. Jul 12, 2014

I got 7 thousand hard core miles out of mine and probably could have squeezed another 1 thousand out em but had a fresh set of TKC in the garage and a ADV rally to attend so I changed em out.

Thomas B: You cannot go wrong with the Heidenau K60 Scout on any pavement. You will get high mileage with this tire overall, and when the going gets rough you will have the confidence that the tire will perform when you need it in the gravel and dirt. It's a great tire. You would burn up three TKC-80 tires to one of these. Jul 4, 2014

Jeff K asked: I'm looking for a tire to get me to Alaska and back on my Vstrom. I hear this is a good tire for the 8,000+ miles of asphalt I will be riding, but wanted to hear more about riding on very wet roads or the mud that may be on the Dalton or the Top of the World highway or on other gravel/dirt roads. How does it handle on non-dry roads? Thanks! Jan 28, 2015

Joel M: The tires have a lot of grip in the turns and good smooth ride on long highway runs with very little nose. I ride a Yamaha Super Tender XT1200Z. I believe the tire tread for larger CC bike is different then the smaller CC bikes. If you have The 1000CC you will most likely use the same tire I have. The tire has a solid band down the center to handle the big bikes power. The grip on dirt roads is very good but when it's wet muddy road in can get a little squirrely. They are 50/50 and very good at it but they are not TKC80. It's a very hard decision to pick a tire the does both road and dirt in one tire and get grip, traction and high mileage, but I think the K60 Scout hits the mark. I have every 6000 and they hardle show the wear. I don't ride hard and I'm not on the throttle like some of the young riders so I believe I will get At least 10k out of them. Hope this helps.

Don D: It will cover the mileage easily, but don't count on it having any traction in the mud. Tires are ok on dry off-road or gravel. Once you arrive switch to real knobbys front and rear. The rear carcass, not front, is very stiff which makes for difficult bead breaking if changing on the side of the road. Street grip is compromised as you may imagine by open pattern and harder compound.
Have a great trip.

Jeff K: Just to edit my original question a little, I usually ride with Pilot Road 4 tires. They are great for long distance and dry/wet riding, but imagine they would be much worse on dirt or mud roads than the K60s. Jan 29, 2015

ROLAND B: I think the K60's are great tires. Off road you need traction on both tires. Personally I would not mix tires. I would switch out the front Tourance to a K60 and keep it for an all road trip later. I have a front Battle wing that I pulled off when I put on the K60s. If I ever do a long trip 2 up I will switch tires. IMHO the K60s are great on road and off. Feb 4, 2015

Fernando T: Hi Mavis:
You could do that, but something to think about: Loosing your grip on the rear is no problem, but loosing your front is 90% sure you'll end up on the ground. Any how manufacturers don't advice doing it and mostly because ABS won't work.

Andrea W: I don't really see why not. I guess my question comes down to what are you doing with the tire. I would suggest airing down the tire when going off road, before you scrap it and replace it.

I run this tire on two different bikes and I love it. I have a DRE640 and GS1200. I have noticed that it wants to slide out a bit if over inflated on the front, but you will find that on any tire.

Just my 2 cents.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jack F: I have found that the Heidenau is an excellent tire in the wet/rain. I have had two of them on my 2009 BMW R1200GS. Last year I made an 8,000 mile trip to Alaska and back. This trip included a run up the Dalton highway to Deadhorse, a run across the Denali road and the Top Of The World Highway. When traveling in Alaska you quite often ride in the rain. I had no problems what so ever. I started on a rear tire (Heidenau) that had 6,000 miles on it when I left. Rode to Fairbanks and had a new Heidenau installed. This tire has about 7,000 miles on it and I plan to run it this next season. As long as you ride in control, you should not have any problems. I ran Metzler Tourances for a number of years before I switched to the Heidenau and I can't see a bit of difference in the handeling. There is a big edge in wear with the heidenau. It will out last the Tourance about one-and-a- half times. They can be a handful to mount, however. Good Luck! Apr 27, 2015

Daniel H: As an everyday rider, I have had good luck in the wet with these tires. They aren't Anakee's by any stretch, and if you open it up w/ GS torque they will spin. Also, if I am going too fast while turning I can definitely feel the shoulder of the front tire trying to hang on, however in my opinion the rear tire is stable. Being an all-terrain tire, normal to slower speeds in the wet on road cornering is in order with the K60 Scout. Apr 27, 2015

Andrew S: When I put the 140/80 - 17 size of the k60 on my klr 650 it had the chevron pattern, it also was that way when my buddy put the k60 on his klr. I have also used the 140/80 - 18 on a couple bikes and have never seen a solid center.

So statistically I would say you answer is chevron for the 140/80-17

I've now ridden these tires on my BMW R1200GS for about 10K miles. At first I was very careful on them until I got them scrubbed out sufficiently (because I really enjoy riding very sporty), but to be quite honest, I was amazed at there ability to hold at a very hi lean angle, mostly do to the comment if rider friends following me.
That all being said, I trust my Michlien Anakee 3 more on the road at higher speeds and lean angle, but they're more of a road tire.

The tire does great on the street. I have done a track day on a K60's (front and rear). I have gotten hard parts on the ground more than once on them riding my 12GS BMW.
The one thing to be carefull of is you will be close to the traction limit. So there is not a lot of traction remaining for breaking or acceleration. You must be smooth.
Hands down the best tire I have run in my almost 50k miles on my BMW.

I've had these tires on (mountain twisties) and off road (COBDR) in Colorado and I was impressed with the grip and smoothness. I had TKC80s on my last GS Adventure and they were a handful in the rain. These performed well in the wet as well as dry conditions. I would say that, on my big-bore adventure bike (R1200GSA) they have exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend these tires.

Charles W asked: I have a 2007 F650GS and am replacing the rear Metzler Tourance with the Heidenau tubeless. One of my questions has been answered, which was can I run a tube inside the tubeless tire. Answer, Yes, but the speed rating goes down from 118 to 112 mph. That's not really an issue for me, since I'll never get there on my bike. My question is about mounting the tire tubeless. My bike has spokes, so should I just put a tube in it? If mounting it tubeless is an option, what do I need to do to accomplish that mount. Which direction (with tube or sans tube) is preferred? Thanks! Jan 19, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James L: Charles, when mounting tubeless to achieve the best balance possible, I will use the green slime mounting solution from any auto parts store and a compressor to seat the bead as quickly as possible. I currently run a heavy duty tube in my k60's on MX rims (ktm 500) so I don't worry about tire/rim balance as much. But, if running a tubed tire make sure to run the strip of rubber between your spoke adjustments and your tube. Jan 19, 2015
Reply to James Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Dave E: When you take the Tourance off, you'll find that it has a tube already in it. You'll also find a "rim strip" or piece of rubber covering the spokes. The rim strip keeps any sharp edges on the spokes from poking holes in the inner-tube.

Your inner-tube may be good for more miles or you may want to change it. I generally inspect the valve stem and area around it since that's usually the first place an inner-tube will show signs of age. You may want to have a new inner-tube on hand so that even if you reassemble with the old one, you'll have a spare in case of flat,

In short, you should be able to take the Tourance off then reassemble everything exactly the same except putting K60 in place of the Tourance.

A shopper asked: Does the K60 scout fit on the 2013 R1200gs?? Apparently the Tyre sizes have changed from the previous models Sep 12, 2013

Carson S: I am not familiar with the fitment for the 2013 model R1200GS, but I will tell you I am very pleased with the performance of the K60 Scout's on my 2009 R1200 GS Adventure. The original stock tires that came with my GSA were great for the road and were not too bad for a RawHyde off-road clinic. The Conti TKC's I replaced them with were great off-road but noisy and had lots of vibration on-road as well as reduced high speed cornering. I've been running K60 Scouts for a year now and find them a very effective balance of on-road manners, off-road grip, and bang for the buck. Good luck! Oct 28, 2013

Don W: I installed a set of K60 Scouts on my 2009 BMW F800GS this year. The rear was a 150/70 17 and the front was a 90/90 21. They replaced some TKC80s which were a little more aggressive. I like these much better on the road. They do well on dry dirt but I have not been in much mud with them. The first front tire had to be returned due to a defect. The handlebars bounced like crazy no matter what I did. The replacement was perfect and they are wearing well. Revzilla took care of it for me. Sep 9, 2013

GSAddictions: The best answer is to go with the factory specified tire sizes and they are designed and engineered to work best with your bike (for the most part, there are several exceptions, however if you knew what those were you wouldn't be asking this question). As for your bike there are 2 F650 models from BMW for 2005 the CS & GS. The CS has a Front 110/70-ZR17 & a Rear 160/60-ZR17 (both tubeless). While the GS has a Front 100/90-19" & a Rear 130/80-17" (both tubed). Best of luck. Mar 31, 2013

Gregory C: I don't know about the tread pattern, but be advised, this tire is a big, square profile tire with a tall sidewall. It would probably handle really strangely as a front tire.

A shopper asked: Regarding the Heidenau scout in 140/80 x18. Wondering if it will fit a 2012 Honda XR650L which came with a 4.60 x18 tire on it.

Looks like it would be about .4" less overall tire height, and .4" wider than the 130/90 x18 D606 people say works on the bike. D606's work great for the bike I am sure, but they always wear out too fast for me but I have seen the scout make it 8000 miles on a loaded wee strom. Any idea?

Rob H asked: I have a garage find perfectly like new 2001 BMW F650GS. I like the CC size.

I do not like the rear tire as I believe it is too small (skinny).
Without buying a new rim what is the widest tire I can fit?
Right now it has: Michelin T66X Sized: 130/80/R17 Tubeless

The tread while being new has no off-road capabilities from what I have found.

I like this pattern and a 50 50 tire. I will be primitive camping (not in campsites) and need to get into the woods at night but spending the days on the road.

Last question - These stock tires look to be balanced on the rims as I see counter weights. Should I get them professionally installed and balanced?

Thanks

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dave E: I have used the K60 Scout tire on the front and rear of my KLR650 with tubes.

The rule of thumb I've heard is to de-rate the tire one speed rating because of the extra heat that can be caused by friction with the inner-tube. For a KLR 130/80-17 with a speed rating of T (118mph) you should ride like it's a speed rating of S (112 mph). Not a real issue with my KLR even with the 705 piston.

Perry O: I have 150/70 18 rear, 90/90 21 front, It's a completely street legal dual sport tire. Great wear characteristics with solid on and off road performance. I run them on my KTM 990 and have been extremely happy even whe loaded down - 700 lbs. I ride 60/40 on/off road. I have run tire pressures as low as 18 psi and up to 36 psi depending on road/ terrain conditions.

Not the best muddy tire, but still good in all but the sloppiest conditions.

4200 miles on my set and they hardly look worn.

anyone interested can look up the ratings for all of heidenautires.com ... its pretty straightforward...

there is also a pdf file you can download, not sure why this info isnt on the revzilla site... anyway, im going to try these out on my trip to yellowstone and see how they fare...

A shopper asked: I'm considering the Heidenau K60 Scouts for my Triumph Tiger 800XC. The issue is that in the appropriate size (150/70-15 rear and 90/90-21 front) the K60's are tubeless ["TL" designation in the part number], whereas my rims require innertubes.

My question: Is it OK to run tubeless tires with tubes?

KaHOnas: I have done so several times. There's no problem with doing so. I will say, though, that you should NOT go with the thick, super-puncture resistant tubes meant for off-road use only (like motocross, etc).

Keepiton: depends on the rims. Some conversions require spoke hole sealing kits, others don't have sufficient RIM for tubeless sealing. Rim locks can also be an issue. Don't just trust your dealer to know correct answer. TaLK to the rim manufacturer's tech dept. Bad info can be very dangerous. That said, last weekend I saw a Scout on a very well accessorized and obviously dirt ridden Tiger. Didn't notice if it had suck rooms though. The tire is ABSOLUTELY worth investigation!
