Motoz Tractionator Adventure Wear


Justin

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to share my recent experience and ask a question about Motoz Tractionator adventure tires. I have already put 70 km (40 miles) on them, half of which was off-road on fairly easy gravel. So far, I'm loving them off-road! However, on the road, I've noticed that the back tire slides fairly quickly and the ABS engages a second or two too late. It feels like I need 60% of rear pedal force to engage the ABS compared to the stock STR's. The front is TKC 80 and that tire still have not seen ABS being engaged.

I have a question for all of you regarding the longevity and chunking of these tires. I've only done around 70 km so far, but is it normal for the tire to wear like this in the picture? I ran 2.2 bar (32 psi) at the rear. I'm not an overly aggressive rider, at least I don't think I am, but with more road tires, I'm not used to seeing any tire wear within 70 km.

Thanks for your help and advice! ūüôā

At 40 miles, most would say they're not properly scrubbed in yet, which happens at around the 100 mile mark.  I would put on some more miles and experiment with tire pressures. I run pretty much oem rear pressures of 34-36 psi on my RallZ and they are giving me an average of 6,500 miles of 60/40 street/az rocks.

That looks like heavy braking and higher pressures.

 

My MotoZ wore very evenly without chunking in the 150/70-18 at 25psi.

Thanks guys for your replies! It is interesting to see two different approaches on tire pressures. I guess I will need to play with pressures more to see what works better. As I live in the Pyrenees mountains, I am definitely naturally more hard on brakes and harder on acceleration. @DanDoesStunts Do you run those pressures on the street as well? How much mileage approx are you getting?

I've been running the Tractionator in the picture 6,000 miles, obviously the one next to it is new. It's been on pavement and gravel/dirt, probably 40% non-paved surfaces. Measuring shows its about 50% worn on the center blocks, although it looks worse and that is why a new one is queued up. I like the tire...do think the Rallz has better performance but replace those at 5000 miles. And I'm running the DV on front, it has 6K as well but you need to flip it every 2K or the leading edge wear destroys it.

Yes mate, 25psi all year round except in special circumstances like long black top stints and sand.

 

I get about 3000km from a rear due to heavy throttle and loose ground.

Looks to be similar tread pattern to stock.   Hated those Pirellis, tho.   Didnt seem to have much lateral grip.   How do they compare?
