Heidenau K76 Rear Tire

The Heidenau K76 is an Adventure / Dual Sport tire for both on- and light off-road use. The wide tread block arrangement and balanced rubber compound provides excellent traction and foul-weather grip for the road, while allowing you to peel off tarmac and attack the fire road.

Best handling, longest lasting tire I've had.
I've run a number of tires, Kendas, Avons, Dunlops, etc. I use my KLR 650 to commute to work 130 miles round trip 5 days a week. The trip is a 50/50 mix of twisty backroads and interstate. Many of the other brands have yielded less than 2000 miles before needing to be replaced. With this tire I've gotten over 4000 miles and it's just now getting to the point where I'm considering replacing it in the next 1000 miles or so. The grip on pavement is fantastic, so much so that I've started scrubbing the ends of my pegs with the more aggressive lean angles I've been able to pull off. Wet traction on the pavement is fantastic too. Off road they have respectable grip on dirt, gravel, and hard pack. I would not recommend them in mud however, the channels between the cleats fills up and it gets slick quickly. If you want to run mud put on a knobby. Overall one of the best tires I've ever owned.

This tire product exceeded my expectations.
Last summer, after running out a set of K60's I was not able to find replacements. I went to the K76's hoping the K60's would arrive prior to my departure to the Arctic Circle in mid June. With a thousand miles on them and still no K60's, I left San Diego fully loaded for the Alaskan Adventure on the trusty '09 R1200GS.
We ran in all road and weather conditions expected, from highway temperatures of 104 degrees to mud and slim as low as 34 degrees, and rain more days than not with one 8o mile section in blinding squalls.
The rear tire was changed out at 7,200 miles of GS'n with full gear at 845 lb GVW rider included.
Tire pressures were adjusted for on and off highway recommendations.
The front tire will see 9,000 miles and then the K60's will be mounted for the Baja Adventure.

Excellent All Around Tire
I purchased a set of these tires last summer. Unfortunately Revzilla was not selling them at the time, but a local shop near my house was. I had originally planned to purchase the Heidenau K60 Scout, as another reviewer as, but I was unable to get them in time. Overall the tires are a brilliant all-rounder. They may not be the best in the rain, the best in the twisties, the best off road. But they are a hybrid that does most things well, much like the Adventure bikes they are designed for. I have had them in the twisties, on the highway, in the rain, on some unplanned for slush and ice, off road some. Very confidence inspiring tire, with excellent grip. For more extreme off-road riding, the K-60 would be a better choice, but I feel this is a better all-rounder and plan to replace them with another set when it is time.

Very stable, confidence inspiring tire.
Rear tire used on 2010 KLR. Went through two original Dunlops and a Kenda 761 before finding this Heidenau. I ride mostly highway and put on 12K per year with some weekend rides on farm, fire and power line roads. I have over 6K miles on this one and may get another 500-600 more. It has worn predictably well and evenly during all conditions. I never felt uncomfortable on it through many heavy rain runs and temperatures ranging from the low 20s in winter up to 110F in summer. No cupping, chafing or burring to be seen. Pricey, but after my experience with the K761, I'm OK with that. I'll buy another one and pick up the Heidenau K60 too. Get this tire. You won't regret it.

Great value
Put the K76 on front and rear of my R1150GS ADV.
Was usingsolely the Tourances and TKC80 on this bike before.I was looking for a setup which was a bit less street in the front as the Tourance and handling gravel roads slightly better.

I mounted the K76 during July and left for Dawson City, YT riding from Sarasota, FL with some detours. This time we were two-up, fully loaded with camp gear and so on. Reaching Dawson City after 5,500 miles, the rear Heidenau was near its life, changed it at about 6,200 mls. Considering the weight and road conditions up North, this was about 1000 mls less I am getting from a Tourance. I expect the K76 to hold near 8,000 single up. The front tire is after returning (11,000mls) still in good conditions beside of course the BMW typical scaling the Tourances and TKC develop as well. The front will go at least another 2000mls.
The Heidenau handled in all weather conditions very well, on par with Tourance. The front is better on gravel than the Tourance. The noise above 65 mph is noticeable higher than Tourance but nothing annoying.

Too early to tell for sure, but feels good so far!
It is early for a tire review and I only have a few hundred miles on the tire, but so far the tire seems pretty good. It is a tick vibey on the pavement between 20-30mph, but disappears above that. Off road this tire does provide better traction that a lot of the dual sport tire. I would still say this is an 80/20 tire, mostly a street tire, but decnet for light off road duty

Really not impressed
Just finished my first 2600 mile week traveling Utah on my new K76. Rear tire has cracks in the body of the tire around the lugs. Almost looks as though it is starting to fail. It seems to be wearing normally but no something I will trust for more miles.

Heidenau K76 is a great tire for the Adventure bike owner.
This review is the same as my review of the front tire; with the addition that rear transmits power to the dirt smoothly, and predictably breaks traction with power. Makes backing it in to turns easy with my low powered KLR.

This tire communicates well, with plenty of feedback on tarmac conditions. It gives a smooth, quiet ride and transitions into lean angles smoothly, something the Dunlop 606s, that the Heidenau replaced, couldn’t do very well.

Off road, they handle fire roads, hard packed and loose dirt with ease and were very predictable on the marble gravel I ride here in Alaska (I work in AK, live in AL). They didn’t like the slick calcium chloride mud that you find in the far North Slope as well as the Dunlop’s, but that’s down to a less aggressive off road tread pattern than a design flaw. The Dunlop’s didn’t play well on asphalt, but loved the dirt. I’ve put about 3000 miles of dirt and gravel exploring and another 1000 miles of on road commuting on this set of tires and they haven’t begun to wear.

These things are great.

Great adventure tire
I replaced my worn Conti's with these because I thought I was riding more road than dirt. I just finished a two week tour of Colorado and I was probably 60/40 road/dirt, time wise. Wow, these did great on the dirt roads, surprisingly good on the 4WD roads complete with stream crossings, steep baby head infested hills. I only missed the knobbies when I found myself on greazy mud (no surprise there). The excelled on the asphalt twisties like no knobby could.

I have the Heidenau Scout K60 on my bike front and rear and they work fine on the street and off road, but I find I am not taking my V-Strom off road as often as I thought I would. I want to try the K76 tires because I want to see if they are better on the road than the scouts and see how they wear. My Scouts have 12,000 miles on them now and looks like they will last another thousand.

Looking for a 80/20 tire for Kawasaki KLR 650 that provides good performance on the street as well as the occasional fire road while providing good wear qualities. From the reviews I have read this tire should provide all I'm looking for. Bought the matching front as well.
Randy P on Mar 23, 2016
I wanted tires that were a good 70/30 tire and I wasn't all that impressed with the old Metzeler Tourace and I didn't think that I was really going to need knobbies. I also wasn't too sure on Shinkos yet since they were still newer. I had read up on Heidenau and their blend of rubber from their days in east Germany. Very interesting story. I have about 8-9K miles on them and they are still in great shape. I expect to get another 5-6k out of rear and another 12k out of the front.

Radials wear terribly on my 2005 VStrom 650, especially the front. The radials leave plenty of tread depth, but cup, step, and other deformities. Eventually can feel the lumpiness on smooth roads. I've tried several different expensive radials over 43,000 miles, all with same results. Going to try these Heidenau K76 bias ply this time. I always change front and rear tires together.
Gary A on Jun 18, 2015
I wanted to try a bias ply tire on my dual sport. These came highly recommended by lots of different people on multiple dual sport forums.
Paul L on Jun 9, 2015
On my BMW R1200GS ADV so far I had Michelin, Continental TKC 80 Twinduro (very good tire!), Shinko (2x), and Metzeler tires.

A rider in Cambodia recommended HEIDENAU and that's what I got.

I will take the tire to Cambodia in a week from now to put it on my bike. Motorcycle tires of this size are almost impossible to get in this part of the world.

Please make sure the tire arrives here before my departure!
Thanks!

Needed a new rear for the KLR that would still give my daily commuter enough traction on dirt/hard pack gravel roads to go fishing.

Will this tire fit on 2014 BMW F800GS ?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Check your owners manual for proper tire size and then match it up. I mounted it front and rear on my 2010 1200 GSA and loved it on the front but did not like it on the rear. it had a very strange wear pattern on the rear.
Can this tire be used with a tube?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use a tube in a Tubeless Tire with no problems. You cannot however, use a Tube Tire on a Tubeless application wheel.
