Dunlop Elite 3 Tires on 83 1100 Aspencade

Postby vaughn » Sun Jun 15, 2014 5:30 pm



I need new tires and have been running the 491 Elite II's.
They are hard to find now. Will the MU90 rear tire clear the drive shaft and the brake bracket alright?

It will work fine, I have used the 3's on my '82 Wing for several years.

I have the Elite 3's and Dyna-beads - love them and I getting lots of life out of the tires - of coarse I went from old Dumlop Qualifiers to the E3s...

I mounted a new elite 3 on the rear with Dyna-beads and it handles like a new bike. The steering head wobble is gone on decelleration. The front tire still has some life left and the elite 3 front tire is on back order. Can't wait for the front tire.
