Hi Freek! :-)
Of course it is just an advise... I'll tell you more: here in Italy, in the papers of your bike are stated just the measures... but...
... the real question is: "who makes rear tyres 150-70-18 70V"?
In my Adv 640 M.Y. '01 papers, the measures allowed for tyres are:
front: 90-90-21 54R, 120-70-17 58R
rear: 140-80-18 70R, 150-60-17 66R, 160-60-17 69R, 130-80-18 66R
Anybody knows why KTM, on the Adv 950 M.Y. '04 allows just 90-90-21 54V (front) and 150-70-18 70V (rear)?
In this measures I can't use Michelin Desert-Baja, and is a pity... with those tyres is impossible the easiest off-road! :-/
Don't you agree?
