Michelins

As anyone run the Michelin Anakee wild tires ? I can get a good deal on a set but don't know anyone that has used them. I was going with the Karro's but tempted by the Michelins

I stuck the AT bike details in the Michelin website and it came back with the anakee's 90/90-21 54H so that's 212kg load rating and 210kmh and 150/70 R18 70H 335kg load rating and again 210kmh so I thought they would be good.

I haven't got my AT yet order 1st week of August and been told by dealer delivery mid November, I went to the Honda Adventure Centre in Wales and the Metzler Karoo 3s are fantastic on and off road on both the manual and DCT, but I have also been looking at the Anakee Wild tyres and all the write-ups that i have read indicate they are superior to the Continental TK80's and the Metzler Karoo 3's

I have over the years put a lot of faith in Michelin tyres on any vehicle, agricultural tractors, HGV lorries, Cars and Motorbikes and never been let down so its really hard to decide do i order untried Michelins on the strength of reviews or the Metzlers which i know are good and have tested myself.

The Michelin Anakee Wild is shown on the Michelin website as being suitable for the Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L. However it is almost certainly an error as when you look at the available tyre sizes there are five versions available none of them in R18.

Response from Michelin below re Michelin Anakee wild tyres showing available for Africa Twin

Our website is jumping the gun a touch by showing the 18" rear, that's not with us until July of next year 2017

I've requested that we remove the listings for the Arica Twin, you're quite right as it stands we don't have a recommended fitment for the bike.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Best regards,

Tony

To resurrect this old thread, I've used the front Michelin Anakee Wild and it is excellent.
It's still on my AT with 6,500 kilometres on the tire and looks like it'll do another couple thousand.
This is one of the most stable and reassuring front tires I've used on a dual sport bike. It really connects and grips in all conditions and is a strong road performer.
I used it on a Western Canada/Alaska journey in dirt, gravel, muck and pavement. It worked very well in all situations.
I'll be buying another one next spring to do another cross-Canada and back journey.

I just ordered a set of Anakee Wild for my AT and I'm wondering, any issue with clearance between the front fender and the tire? There's minimal clearance with the stock tire so hopefully there won't be any rubbing.

I have the Rugged Roads fender lift but I'm 98% sure that even without it you won't have any issue with clearance between the tire and fender. The front knobs are only 6-7 mm.

I know this thread is a few months old, but I have a set of the Mich Wild on my ATAS for the last 700 miles, 90% on road. I have had zero issues with them. I ride fairly hard, lean way over in the corners and generally hooligan the ATAS as much as I can. The only question will be longevity with my 90% on road usage.
