January 20, 2014Had the dunlop 404d on for 1yr 3mo with about 2600mi put on them driving mostly on chip and seal roads. The tires are worn down the middle with no thread left. Dealer told me about another 500mi or less before I will be showing the belt and needing another rear tire. Never again for rear tire. Jury is still out on front. Original dunlop that came with the bike with 10mi lasted close to 9300 and 2 1/2 years but it was a different model.
Dunlop 404 didn't last 3000 miles
October 06, 2013I had a new Dunlop put on rear of my Harley in march. The tire is shot after 3000 miles and flat wear pattern across the middle. I checked the air pressure before each ride. These tires are junk. I will go with Bridgestone from now on. STAY AWAY FROM DUNLOP!!!!
No more dunlop 404 tires
July 16, 2013I had these same tires on my old 500 Kawasaki and got about 12,000 miles out of the set. On my vl800, I've had two sets and never gotten more than 7,500 miles out of them. They grip great for the first 1,000 or so miles, but wear rapidly and performance goes downhill fast. Never again with these tires for me.
Done with dunlop
July 01, 2013Had Dunlops in past that gripped and wore well. These 404's are the worst by far I've ever rode on. Front and back both have 6K on them and are nearly bald. I usually get 8 front and 12-14 back. Will now buy anything but Dunlop for replacement.
Piece of crap.
June 07, 2013I replaced both tires on my 2000 750 Honda ACE with 404 Dunlops. Within a matter of 2000 km, I noticed significant wear on both tires. I conferred with my buddies and they advised to run 4-5 psi above recommended for the bike. I am a new rider ( pleasure only) 155 lbs, solo, mature and sedate ( mostly) and not a risk-taker at 60. I don't like this tire at all.
I am on this site to check out my next replacement, and I am glad that I have this opportunity to warn others to stay away from this tire ( piece of crap ). Your money is better spent elsewhere.
March 24, 2013Tire bald after 2750 miles!!! I'm a stickler for proper tire pressure. Now that's an expensive piece of junk!!! Have noticed, since running Dunlops on my bike for 79,000 miles (usually Cruisemax) over a period of 11 years, the mileage has been getting less and less per tire. Used to get 12000 miles on a tire. Now, not even close.
D404 not for harleys
October 25, 2012On dunlops web site, I did not know this. Two shops said there was not problem running this tire on a dresser. Scary!!!
Is the D404 an acceptable replacement tire for use on Harley Davidson models?
The D404 is not meant to be used on Harley Davidson motorcycles. In many cases the D404 does not have the load carrying capacity for use on Harley Davidson motorcycles. Most D404 tires are intended for lighter, cruising motorcycles and are constructed for use on those bikes. D404 tires are bias tires, not bias belted, and do not have additional supporting plies.
Motorcycle tires differ from each other in their size, their load carrying capacity, internal construction and the intended type of use. For example, tires for sport riding compared to tires for long distance touring may have different compounds, constructions and tread patterns.
Always fit the correct tires to your motorcycle, and for Harley Davidson motorcycles, never fit a D404.
Edit: I found the rated capacities.
D404 67H 661Number (at)41psi
D401 73H 805Number (at)41psi
D402 74H 827Number (at)41psi
Tire is junk
July 02, 2012Went in to shop that installed and sold the Dunlop 404 150/80 rear tire less than 1000 miles, 75 percent or more worn out. I ride single weigh 189 lb don't abuse my eqip. Really this pisses me off. Had them installed an good air pressure no more Dunlop from Indonesia.
Dunlop 404 tire
November 07, 2011This tire was great coming out of the gate. But like a five pump chump, it didn't last long. What a waste of time and money. Do not buy this tire!
July 22, 2011Worst tire I have ever had on a bike. I hope this is not indicative of Dunlop as a whole.
