The only catch is that it is Bridgestone M401F rather than Dunlop. Bridgstone has this size. I bought mine from Rocky Mountain ATV, but I would imagine the TT guys have them as well.

When mounted you can see a big difference in size. The sidewall appears much higher and the tire is at least 1/2 inch wider.

I have not been able to test it other than riding on some frozen dirt in the neighborhood. The tire feels better than the 756RR that I usually buy. Your supposed to run it with the wider 120 series rear so I suppose I will get one of those next.

This is the front tire Suzuki is putting on their new RMZ 450. I think that in time this will be the stadndard front tire for all ooffroad/motocross bikes. Over the last 20 years everything on our bikes has changed. Stronger and forks, frames, and more powerful engines. It is odd that tires have not changed. The same basic tire we could buy in the 70's is still being sold.

The tire corners very well. I think it will be 6 months before I can try it on anything but frozen dirt!
