    Tire/Tyre Description

    The new D408F tire is made for 2009 FL touring models, and therear tires feature Dunlop’s advanced MT Multi-Tread technology. MT Multi-Tread rear tire incorporates a tough tread compound in the center that runs cooler to provide stability, excellent traction under braking and long life, and to each side is a section of lateral-grip compound that enhances traction at higher lean angles for great grip while cornering. Reinforced multi-layer tire carcass gives the tire maximum strength for long life and provides great handling at all speeds and lean angles. Bold, angled lateral grooves in the tread pattern evacuate water from the contact patch on wet roads. Developed and tested jointly by Dunlop and Harley-Davidson engineers in the lab and on the road. Available from OEM dealers only.
