Hey What Kind Of Tires Should I Get For My 1997 Xr 650 L. My Riding Will Be About 50/50. They Must Be D.o.t. Approved. Any Help Would Be Great. Thank You.

DUNLOP 606 is probably the best ... stiff sidewalls, a real pain in the butt to R&R ... :thumbsup:

Yes, the Dunlop 606 will be my next tire set. My bike came with 603's but I can't find them anywhere. The 606 tires look really close.

I am going to mount some maxxis C6006 tires on my xr650r. They are a good looking street tire, rounded profile and long lasting, and also works off road. It is a 50/50 tire that i think is the best. They are like $120 for the pair shipped from www.denniskirk.com Hope that helps.

Try these, not very good in mud but do a great job on rocky / lose terrain
and work great on the road. Plus they give you real good milage.
