HOOZ THE IDJIT ?

He is recommending the Pirelli MT-83
as an all-round woods/mud/trail tire at about 120$ fitted !
I have a Bridgestone at the moment which is melting before my eyes. I dont know which one but it sure is wearing fast.
Any comments ?
Airbox Lid - gone
Throttle Stop - shorty!

Personally, I was unhappy with them. At first, they were great compared to the stock 739's in mud. However after two rides both the front and rear showed signs of wear, and sure enough on the third ride it was slide city again. I just don't think the 756 is as good as a tire as some do. If you can find Michelin S12 or M12's, consider this combo too.

yes, it is classified as a softterrain tire, but asside from working well in the mud, it is excellent in the hard pack surface of my local track once the lines are worn in...
the s-12 front i would not recommend if you plan on doing any track riding... it has a major tendancy to wlk in the turns...

s-12 in the rear
best tire combo for any riding condition
but don't confuse those... if you run an s-12 front and 756 rear, you'll do nothing but pick the bike up after the front end walks out on you in the turns... the s-12 front is not a good track tire.

I ran S12's on my Husaberg and they wear like IRON and will get you over ANY terrain you're interested in with authority.
The 739's on my new WR suck. Hell I've only ridden it twice in dirt and the leading edges are well worn off. I think I'll take it Chadwick, MO and grind it to pieces then get an S12!
