@SpookDog on the rear of my friends DT50 I have and I have to say I liked it. It’s a little expensive however they make a front and back that for once are the perfect, factory spec sizes, they have a really even curve between treat and nice contact patch.
I think if you consider something like the Bridgestone Trailwing or the tradition Kenda ‘trail tire’ then Pirelli’s Mt21 seems like the natural step up. In my Opinion there’s not many tires that’ll actually hold up to the mark, especially when it comes to their 60/40-50/50 specifications.
I genuinely would say it’s a true 60/40 tire that
Much nicer chunky, spaced knobbies without sacrificing rolling resistance or fully committing to the drawbacks of a full off road knobbly tire.
I’m looking to get a pair myself providing I don’t just go back to old school trail tires
Found a set of wr125x supermoto wheels from the 2009-2015 model was wondering if they would fit in the standard 2007 DT125RE forks?
Easier job if you have the forks to match - this is how I did the DTR SM I once had but that was with DTX forks so I cant say if the WR ones are the same diameter as the RE ones you have to enable a straight swap
@Jgb19830 i think you should get one from a dt125x i have a supermoto converted dt125re and the speedo shows around 15-20kmh over what you are going. though my speedo doesnt work anymore since the wire broke and i cant be arsed to buy a new wire
On DTX SM rims I run 120 front and 150 rear Conti Attack SM tyres, you don't really wanna go much wider than them on standard rims as the profile is pretty agressive, takes alot of lean to get full use of the curve but they feel very good on tight mountain roads.
@Bluestoesonnose@Glynn123 is correct, front hubs are very different. The only way you could have two sets of wheels and one set of brakes is by swapping the forks from another bike like a KTM. As caliper brackets to convert enduro brakes to larger SM brakes are more plentiful with KTM's. You would also need a custom spacer for the headset and you might have to fanny around with the wheel spacers as well, but they are relatively small problem's to fix if you plan on achieving your goal.
