#just-send-it! Lol. Just kidding. When I change my tires I'll leave mine stock and see what happens. I can't see these tires changing by any great degree... But you do have very valid points. I'll volunteer to be the tester

Did my first real duel sport off road trail-in yesterday and not sure i'll even need Knobby Tires after all ? .I found that since the bike doesn't have enough power to spin' the wheel anyways in soft dirt/sand or going up steep hills a knobby isn't going to be all that much help anyways . It never spun or slipped out once all day , even on the off camber slopes .. And Its not like my KLR 650 duel sport where its being rode hard like a dirt bike, the Z' is for fun/mellow cow-trailing. maybe a slippery wet/mud type ride would be the only advantage . I Just hate to ruin the plush smooth street manners the the stock tires have now .My duel sport rides are 80% street to get to 20% dirt trails type rides
.
So Ya .......... anyone have anymore input on the street performance with the knobby Tires ?

I lived in Arizona and most of the non-Jeep trails there should be fine on even the stock tires, and no tires are going to get you through a Jeep trail.

Here in the northeast, dirt bike trails are a different animal. They are just rocky and muddy enough that you NEED knobbies on most of them. I took my Z125 down an ATV trail that wasn't too bad on the stock tires, but there is no way it's making it on most of the trails that I take my WR250R on. To be fair, I wouldn't want to take a KLR650 down them either(I had one years ago in PA), but with knobbies, I think the Z125 could survive a lot of them. The stock tires really fail in any kind of mud or over even small rocks and tree limbs. I also tested them in the snow. Don't try it, lol.

Installed the M6024's on my Z and the wife's Razkull last week. Enjoying the heck out of these tires. They have a great on road prowess also, I have been very comfortable running these on the black top.
Highly recommend these to anyone on the fence about trying them.
