Continental Twinduro TKC80 Dual Sport Tires 4.5 5 49 49
TKC80 good choice for KTM v-twin dual sports My new 2014 1190 KTM Adventure R gets very good grip in loose dirt, gravel and crushed stone with the Conti TKC80 tire. I pair this tire on the 21" front with a Heidenau Scout 60 on the 18" rear. Important: don't lower tire pressures. The stock wheels on these bikes can't handle it. You'll get pinch flats and dented wheels if you do. The Heidi front wears much better but won't get you the grip you'll need up front. So I put up with the reasonable Revzilla price and buy two TKC80 fronts for each Heid rear. Both tires are tubeless and rated for 100 mph. Ted in Chicago April 21, 2014
A little squrily at first! These are really nice tires, but you need to get through a couple hundred miles before you can really test them. When new they tend to "wander" a bit on the road, but that feeling calms down after a while and they pretty well planted. Awesome on dirt, good on pavement. Best to keep the bike under 90MPH to keep things sane. I can already see some Wear on the rear after 200 miles but thats just the sharp edges of the large knobs being sanded away. I expect to get vabout 3500 miles out of these with a 80/20 (road/dirt) terrain combo April 21, 2014
Great tread pattern! So far I'm loving the TKC80! I have them on my F800GS and they preform Awesome! March 16, 2014
My second TKC80 rear tire I have these on my 2012 Tiger 800xc (great bike). The first one lasted about 2500 miles in good shape and about another 1000 in decline. At the time I replaced it, it was still handling fine on the street and light gravel roads but I wouldn't have attempted anything more sketchy with any confidence. I honestly only spend about 10% of my miles off the pavement, but when I do get off road I try to make it count. So I want a capable tire and i've been very happy with the TKC80. I'm still running the same TKC80 front tire and it is wearing very slowly. I'm pretty sure it won't be due to be replaced until the rear is toast again. Overall i've been very happy. Which is why I stuck with TKC80 again instead of trying something different like the Scout which I considered. However, if you are coming from heavily street biased tires you will definitely be giving up a lot of feel. I hated them at first, they felt like they were half filled with water haha. but once I got used to them(and scrubbed in) they will actually do most anything you ask of them on the street and crazy a lot more than any 80/20 tire is going to do off road.

Just the truth I bought this tire to put on a bike I was selling, because I know it is extremely popular and gives the bike a rugged off road look. It is not my personal first choice so I bought it for cosmetic reasons. But I have put 800 miles on the tire and can give you my impressions. When it was brand new, there was an obvious quickening in the turning in characteristic. The tire is VERY rounded and gets the bike "over" quickly. As it wore in during the trip that diminished somewhat. When riding I try not to over-scrutinize new items. Instead I ride my normal style and see if I notice anything different. I rode paved mountain curves in the rain with confidence, Went on some 4WD roads and a couple of limited trails and the best thing I can say about it is... I didn't notice it. Which means it didn't dissapoint nor surprise. I've been running the Heidenau and was satisfied with this tire. The TKC80 looks great on the bike and delivers on performance. It does however have a traditionally short lifespan, which is why I choose the Heidenau. If wear length were equall, I would have a hard time choosing between the two. November 26, 2013
Good Traction, Marginal Tire Life Finding that combination of an adventure tire that offers decent traction off-road with good tire life is always elusive and I gave the TKC-80 rear a try on my Husqvarna TR650. Off-road performance was good and better than most of the stock offerings on adventure bikes--especially when paired with a front tire that's a bit more knobby like (in my case a D606). On the road I found the TKC 80 to wander a bit at 70+, but decent overall. It seemed fairly well planted in the rain as well. My only real complaint is the on road mileage was far below what I was expecting (or hoping). The first 1000 miles wore the tread down to about half--which surprised me. The last half seemed to wear a bit better at about 2000 miles, but in the end I'm faced with a tire that only gets about 3000 miles before it's toast. A competent tire I can recommend with a big qualification on road mileage, but my next try will be a Heidenau K60 Scout rear. October 28, 2013
Outstanding Tire Running this Running this tire on the front with a K60 on the rear. Just got home from a 300 mile jaunt, two up, 60% forest roads (mixed sand, mud and gravel). All of our time on the tarmac was spent in the rain and about 15 miles of light snow. The tire held well, handled the forest roads like a champ and stuck to the wet/cold hardtop like it should. Some low spend chatter and vibrations, but above 40 mph the tire smooth’s out. Will definitely keep the TKC 80 on the front. tire on the front with a K60 on the rear. Bike: 2012 Vstrom DL1000 September 30, 2013
GS friendly Best for on / off tar use... secure in the dirt and surprising in the twisties. Another option is the K60 Scout Rear and TKC80 Front for best wear mileage... September 16, 2013

A shopper asked: I have a Triumph tiger 800XC. The owners handbook says I need a tube type tire. I'm interested in the Heidenau K60 scouts. Do you have these for my bike? Nov 15, 2013

Jason R: I had a 800gs and ran the K60 scouts on the rear and the TKC 80's on the front. It was a great combo! I got almost 12000 out of the scouts and the TKC's really bite where I needed it off-road. At real slow speeds (like putting in traffic to get to a traffic light) the scouts can feel a little weird and wiggly, but I found this to be pretty normal. I have a friend that has the tiger 800xc and did the exact same thing and he loved both tires. I will do the same for my new Yamaha Super Tenere. You can't go wrong with this combo. Nov 17, 2013

Josh K asked: Do Conti TKC80 tires come in a Tube Type version? I only see a 90/90-21 TL 54T listed on your website? Can a tube be placed in a tubeless style tire? Apr 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Keith M: Funny you ask. I carry a tube with me even though these are tubeless tires because one of the service guy's at Bob's BMW suggested I do this several years ago prior to a trip across Labrador during which I bent a front wheel and it would not hold air. The tube saved my trip and ran for another four thousand miles without vibration or problem until I got the wheel straightened at Woodie's in Denver. I always carry tubes when traveling to remote places with tubeless tires. I'm not sure how I will use them on the new GSW wheels though as the valves are in a funny location. Apr 9, 2014

Stuart H: I use the tubeless type on my KTM with tubes, and have done so for years . Only a few spoked wheels out there factory made for tubeless applications (BMW and I think the Aprilia Capo Nord, and I think both rims are made by Behr). Would not recommend going the other way- using a non-tubeless tire for tubeless but using a tube on a tubeless tire no worries. Apr 9, 2014

Andrew G: Even if tubeless you can still throw a tube in it. My F800GS has the 90/90-21 on it right now with tube in it. Apr 24, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm looking to put the tkc 80 on the front of my 2013 F800GS. Can anyone answer what the difference is between the 90/90-21 TT 54S and the 90/90-21 TL 54T?

Stuart H: KTM 990 ADV. TKC-80's getting 2500-4000 miles on rear depending on how "sporty" I get in rocky terrain. 5000 on fronts. Fronts cup after 3000 if you don't keep the pressures at recommended levels. They're fun and versatile. Not noisy or too vibrational. Still my go-to choice. Nov 8, 2013

Mark K: I have a KTM 990 Adventure

I've put about 1500 highway miles on my Conti TKC 80's they haven't worn that well, but I've put about 500 miles of Trail Riding on them....they've been great!

It really depends what you plan on doing with them.

Roger Z: About 4500 miles is what I got on the Conti...that being said 2200 of that was pavement. It was just at the wear bar and could have run probably another 800 to 1000 safely. I don't wait until the last minute to change. Nov 3, 2013

A shopper asked: Ok this may be a stupid question but my cousin runs these on his ducati and he loves them. I just got back into the dual sport scene after an accident. Just got alittle cfr250l. Yes I know its a womens bike but it was cheap and I would rather wreck that then a big money bike. I understand these are made for bigger bikes but is it possible to slap them on a 250? Apr 7, 2014

Chris Van M: Yes if you have the rim size that they sell. Also be careful with the width. These are for the bigger bikes with wider swing arms. So measure the width of the swing arm up front, check to see if it will clear your chain, and not be too wide for your rim. Apr 15, 2014

Stuart H: I have the 150/18 and they say 99mph on the side. Don't know about the 180/17 for sure. The codes listed on Conti don't differentiate specifically, and the # codes are very similar. All that said, hard sayin' not knowin'... Nov 8, 2013

A shopper asked: What size should I select for my KTM 500EXC? Oct 7, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stuart H: I think you only have the one option for the front if you're running a 21" front rim. For the rear, I'd opt for the 120 on the width. A 140 MIGHT fit in there, but your lack of horsepower (vs a 690 or 990 KTM) may have a hard time getting the 140 spinning the way you're used to off road. The TKC will likely be heavier than a dirt tire as well. Plus, an OEM dirt bike rim may do funny things to the 140 anyway. I'd guess you usually run a 110 rear for a normal dirt tire. You'll lose some height on the TKC's vs dirt tires too. Please post your review of the tire as I've always wondered how the TKC would be on a small dual sport rig. My guess is you'll have an all new appreciation for what your 530 can do. Oct 8, 2013

Jose L: 120/70Z-17 in the front and 180/55-1B7 in the rear,but I would go with a Metzeler Next 190/55R17 75W since you have a tubeless rim and you want to be safe having the right size on it. Sep 16, 2013
