It would follow every track,groove or uneaven plane.
Is the K490 really that much better? What are the tires you guys like to run out there??

I have found that my favorite combo is the Dunlop D756 up front and a Dunlop D739AT out back.
That's a great combo for desert riding..
My favorite front tires are the Bridgestone 601 and the Pirelli MT44, both tires stick very well....
My favorite rear tires are the Dunlop 739at and the Bridgestone 602.
I mostly ride Mojave and Jawbone Cyn...

at 12 psi, Last time I was there I ran the 756 At 14 psi and wasn't as stable in the sand .( could have just been the psi, 12 psi is key)On the rear I had a 773 ,great in the sand but wears quick in the rocks so I went to the local ktm dealer in town and they had a kenda on sale for $29,slapped it on and had two days of great riding. It was so cool not having to worry about wearing out a $70 doller tire in the rocks, it still looks pretty good,
and I wasnt anywere close to easy on it. So I recommend s12 at 12psi front and any cheap new tire for the back

just bought a scotts dampener today
cant wait to put it on.Are the adjustments personal prefrence or is there a prefered setting people like to run?
Im trying to decide between Mich s12 front or d756.
SC, when you first get the Scotts unit you find yourself constantly adjusting the thing back and forth. Over time you just kind of put it on one setting and forget about it. To answer your question I have mine on 5 out from the hardest when I'm going fast in the desert. If I ride MX I'll dial it to 10 out because you have to turn the bike. Congrats on the new purchase... Good investment.. Let us know what you think.
