twinshock trail tyres
Hi all
I am just ressurecting my old R60/7 and need to put some new travelling tyres on it .Does any onr Know for SURE if I can fit the new Continental as worn by Ewan Mcgregor's bike at the back. I know they do a 400x18 but I am worried about the swing arm clearance It only has 1/2 inch 15mm clearance with a Sahara (enduro 3).
come to that is there a decent 19 inch trail tyre for the front?
thanks sg88

I can't say for sure if it will fit, but I would expect it will. If you put it on the rim and it proves to be a bit wide, I have shaved the knobs off one side of a dirt tire that was to wide for my G/S. That worked fine - just don't try and shave the carcass - that could lead to a blow out. In my case, I took off about 3-4 mm of rubber which made all the difference.

I've been using Avon Distanzias on my R80ST, they work well on tarmac,even in the wet, and pretty good on trails as well. However mine is a monoshock and there is plenty of clearance.
