The 110 is cheaper and the bike turns much better.

If you have'nt noticed yet, the bike already goes fast enough straight.....it needs help in the turns. :)

I have a 120, I wouldn't go any bigger, the bike seems to handle better when the 120 is worn a bit.

I just changed from a mt21 140 to a D606 120. I did this because I thought it would be better cause it's lighter. Well I am going up one size to a D606 130 because the 120 just seems to spin, lack of traction.

Oh & I also have "only" an XR650L not a BRP (R version)

running dunlop 606 120s right now. does well on dirt but slides quite a bit on the street. i might try the pirelli mt21 in 130 when the 606 goes.

Try an VE-33 on the rear. It'll be good for roughly 1000 miles of offroad thrashing.
