I had to get a new front tire to get an inspection sticker. Did my homework and found that the Kenda Kruz K673 was the one I wanted. I purchased the Kenda Kruz K673 100/90/19 front tire from Ebay for about $55.00 free shipping. A couple of days later I received the tire but it was the Kenda Challenger. Made phone call & they sent me the corret tire and a label to send the wrong one back.

Very good tire. Put it on my 81 gl1100. Exellent low speed stability & slim to none groove tracking.

I haven't heard of that tyre. How does it grip in the rain?

Nice price !



Looking at your first picture I have to ask , when did the one sided front fork option make it to production ?

The tire looks like it is flat across the top, won't that make it tuff on tight cornering

It is a rounded tire. Must be the way the camera took the picture.
