Anyone have experience with Heidenau tires on rear of MP3 400 or 500?

General thread claims very long life on their smaller tires. I found some German reviews which google translate yielded that they experienced long life on the K-64

I ran a K-61 on my 250 rear and liked it.

I just ordered a K-64 in 150/70-14 size. None in stock in U.S. so 6 weeks or more befre Moto-Amore gets it. They have the 140 in stock but I decided to wait for the 150. Says they have sold some 140s for MP3s but has no feedback specific to MP3.

Thanks for being the guinea pig yet again. Can't wait to hear what you think of them. Hopefully they'll last longer than the PP's.


Cheers,

Icky poo!
I did NOT like the Heidenau on the rear of my 250.
No grip, no grip, no grip.
I think it was the K62, but could have been the K61....
I just got rid of it and put on a PP.
The Heidenau was squared off at about 3000 miles.
