New Conti tyres on my 2019 800 XRX
« on: March 17, 2021, 11:56:46 AM »
Hi all,

Just had my first ride on new tyres, fitted my tiger 800 xrx with Conti-Trailattack-3 (rear and front)
Front the radial 110/80.

Was not so happy with the original front tyre, not bad but at cold rainy weather no good feel about the front tyre.

First impression ; quickly on riding temperature (ride at 8 degrees C), and easy smoothly into the corners.

PS in many tyre road tests Conti Trailattack 3 : top of the list.

cheers
Hans

Just an advice, don't trust the stock pressures, every front tires have specific pressure to feel best,
my current Michelins like 2.35bar best even 2.3bar when warm weather.
The 2.5/2.9 stock pressures don't always give the best feel, just experience within 0.2bar this won't
make any troubles.

Thanks for your advice/tip

The original tourance front tire, after some wear, was only rideable in corners with 2.8 bar instead of 2.5
