Comments about Kenda K671 Cruiser ST Motorcycle Tire:
It rides great but that makes it difficult to install if you don't know the trick to doing it. The trick is using Heavy Duty Cable Ties. This tire has stiff sidewalls making it difficult to hold the beads close together as you use your tire irons to slip them over the rim. Start by putting the first bead over the rim using liberal amounts of soapy water or Windex glass cleaner as a lubricant. If required put your tube in now. Now start pushing Cable ties around one side of the tire and zipping them tight so the beads are held close together. Push more cable ties around the other half of the tire but don't tighten them yet. Using your tire irons start forcing the second bead over the rim. Tighten the cable ties as required as you go. This keeps the bead from slipping back off the rim. You'll quickly get the hang of it and you'll be shocked how cable ties make this an easy job. Once both tire beads are over the rim you can cut and remove the cable ties and inflate the tire. If you have a manual motorcycle balancer start by putting just the wheel without tire and tube mounted on the balancer. Find the heavy point and mark it. Before you install your new tire look for a 1/4" or 3mm single round paint dot on the sidewall of the tire. Inspection stamps are usually located around that dot as well. This dot marks the light point of the tire. Align this paint dot with the heavy point you marked on the wheel. This will make balancing your wheel with it's new tire much easier if further balancing is required.

Good tire for the money
from Stanwood, Wa
People who installed the tire for me said it was hard to install due to rigid sidewalls. However, I find that the K671 performs and wears very well for my application. I did two road trips on one rear tire. I got my money's worth.

Solid tire with good tread pattern
By Colorado boy
from Four corners, Colorado
I actually have already recommended this tire to a co-worker who saw it on my bike and asked about it. Had it for over a thousand miles now this summer and it still looks good and holds as expected for a harder tire. For the price treas pattern is effective and attractive, it is not an A+ grip in rain, but that's part and parcel with a hard road tire. Not for racing, but good for everyday commute and that's me!
Harder than h__l to mount front
from Houston, TX
I finally had to take the front tire to a shop to mount. The mechanic said Kenda was a decent tire - just don't ride them in the rain. No Response from Kenda customer service to my phone call - SHAME ON THEM - Who likes to be ignored???
Service and delivery comments:
I would have rated you higher, but the phantom handling charge is not particularly appreciated. Charge what it costs you to ship with a couple extra dollars thrown in - That's OK
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
