Any tips? Saw the KR133 slick idea, but looking for something with some sipes/tread in the carcass. 110/150? Or 120/160. It's for my DRZ supermono, with RS125 (2007) running gear.

Thanks

Off topic:
Doesn't the DRZ have the drive shaft on the left side? Is the '07 RS125 different from the '09 in regards to drive shaft side?

Post some pics........'been day dreaming for weeks now about grafting in a bigger motor.

I've run the Michelin Power Race (now Power One) on my DRZ with good success. I went with the 120/150 combo.

If you aren't using warmers you'll have to adjust pressure downward to try and get the tires to reach usable temps. Even with warmers you'll probably want to run a couple of psi lower than "normal".

I'm starting to think that the rolling chassis is that of a DRZ.

Ha!....my bad.

Here is my blog -- the frame is a tigcraft I bought from the man Dave Pearce for 200 pounds on my European trip last year. It was intended for an SZR600, and had only the main tubes and steering stem in place, along with the swingarm pivot. The rear swingarm is a pegaso swingarm, flipped to work with the LHS DRZ400 chain run. Rear wheel, forks, and front wheel brakes and triple are 2007 rs125. Oil tank custom, fuel tank from a zzr250. Tyga rear subframe, Ducati tail section and seat. Front Fairing will be Aprilia RS50. That's it for now, hope to turn it into a fun trackday toy that only needs one set of tires a year, and can embarrass the bigger bikes in the corners.

There's also my Ducati Project on the site:
