Re: KLR and KLR-X4 Tires
 
I have a question regarding foams for the KLR-M. I use the KLR-M right now, with proline dual stage front and single stage rear, on my Capra (aprox 6lbs), and they are to stiff ithink. Cause sometimes the KLR-M struggeling to find traction. So i'm looking at the Lil Nova, but i'm not sure which one to choose 4.25 4.5 4.75 ? think will go soft front medium rear or should i go better a different combination f/r?

Edmundo from CI recommended the below for my KLR golds. I provided the information below that. Granted, I haven't run these tires and foams yet, but on the bench they do seem way too stiff in the rear. I'll update the post when the pandemic lockdown ends and I'm able to test the tires and foams out on the rocks.

CWR-2025 front
CWR-2026 rear

Rig: Vanquish VS4-10 Origin Limited
Weight: 7.9 pounds
Tires: Ottsix Voodoo KLR Gold compound
Tire Size: 4.7" OD x 1.7" wide

I don't know how they perform as I haven't run my KLR/m's, but CI recommended the foams below after I provide the information below that.

CWR-2025 rear

Rig: Axial Capra
Weight: 5.8 pounds

Thanx Jato for the Info. Spot on. "thumbsup" I had first runs on them, like the performance so far. But need to change the foams to get the real result.

I think most guys are running 4.25 inners in the OG KLR golds.

I read that, but I didn't believe it would work well. Now I'm starting to believe it.

Way back when I used KLR Silvers, I found the 4.25s to be too stiff. I found that foam tuning the KLRs is a pain in the ass due to the massive amounts of ribbing in the tire.

A bunch of people said that it is difficult to choose foams. You thought 4.25" foams were too stiff in the 4.7" KLR tires?

I am running the CI single stage for 4.19Ē tires. Basically to keep the tire from folding on the side-hilling. The ribs take care of the rest it seems. The tires are still stiff, but I like them.

The 4.25" foams were too stiff in the OG KLRs in silver compound on a sub 6lb rig. The KLRs also don't quite measure out to 4.7", I think mine measured out to 4.55".

Iím waiting on a set Of KLR Golds I ordered, TOR sent ,me an email saying they were out of stock. They said a few weeks, so Iím waiting for an update that theyíve been shipped. I have a older set of that is still in good shape that Iíve run C.I. 4.25 LIL Novaís Soft/Medium in and Iím happy with that set up.
