Michelin Anakee III tires
« on: September 16, 2020, 07:08:25 PM »
Hi,
I tough I would share my experience. I bought a F850 GS 2019 new in August 2020. I had problem with loud noise coming from the rear tire (Michelin Anakee III) at 70-74 km/h and 104 km/h. Had the motorcycle check by technicians at dealer, spent few dollars on test drive and they told me everything was OK.  Could not accept that so I bought new tires, Dunlop Trail Smart, and had those put on this weekend. What a difference! Smooth ride, noise is gone, Back to smile again when riding!! So 2 Michelin Anakee tires up for sale...
Anybody have experienced the same noise?
Hope it helps someone.
Have a great day.

same noise issue, same exact speeds. Too cheap to buy new tires tho. I will change them at the end of their life. They are quite resistant and grippy tho. 10 000 km in they look and feel like new.

The Anakee III are know for being noisy... I found that as more miles were added the noise became more noticable. I liked the wear on the Anakees due to the dual compound tread so at 9,500 miles and the tires still holding decent tread I swapped them out for Anakee Adventures which although having a more aggressive tread are actually quieter.
I don't know where we are... but I have been lost here before...

I have the same noisy tires for over 10.000 km. But now I feel like i get less traction from them especially in the rain. But I still have several millimeters to go until the markers.

For our non metric friends. 10.000km =~6000miles
several millimeters = half a fingernail of the pinky
(couldn't help myself so sorry in advance)

I have blocked out the noise with a good set of ear plugs which sorts out the noise issue.

I am Just under 10,000 miles on my Anakee 111s with the front tyre ready for replacement but loads of meat on the rear. I know the fronts come with reduced tread depth, but usually it is the rear that wears out first.

As I said previously my wifes front wore more and differently on her 750 than mine did on the 850. I was just thinking that maybe the smaller diameter front on the 750 needs to complete more revolutions per mile or Km than the larger 21 inch on the 850 therefore it actually travels farther treadwise and at higher RPM in the same amount of miles. :084: Thoughts?

I saw a meme stating that the US will use anything to measure length except the metric system...so that's roughly 16500 washing machines.
As for the fear of falling...learn to love and cherish the experience. You want it. You need it. You can't wait for the next hit.

I can confirm that my Michelin Anakee 3s were also noisy at the speeds mentioned.  I had them changed for Michelin Road 5 Trail and the problem was solved.

Same here, my choice of tyre on the next change. I would be interested in your opinion.
