Has it always been IRC's? I'm asking cause I picked up a low mileage BRP w/ Kenda Carlsbads. I was just wondering if possibly they could be stock?

Here in the US I think the bikes come with Dunlops (mine has a 739 on the front and a 695 on the rear). I seem to remember a review by an Australian guy that mentioned the bike he was riding was equipped with IRC's(TR8's?).

All Hondas is the states may come with Dunlops but definitely not in the rest of the world. I have owned lots of Hondas and there is all sorts fitted as standard. Michelin / Pirelli, all sorts. I had a CB1300 last year and it came with Michelin Macadams but a mate had one with Pirelli tyres on, same year bike.

On the XR650R, mine came with IRC TR8 tyres, so did the last one I had which was a 2002 bike. Both were brand new bikes. But I have heard of different tyres fitted in France.

My xr650r came with a dunlop 739 on the front and a 695 on the rear the 695 is a good tire but that front 739 will get you killed in the mud it is slicker than whale crap on ice so i changed it and put on a pereli M 32 It doesn't load up with mud.
