I've tried them a couple times, doing about 90% dirt (sand road/gravel road), on a 650R and can't get comfortable with it. It's just a bit too unpredictable in the dirt for me.
If you're doing more pavement it might be fine. It wears super well.

I've never tried one, but Dunlop recommends a 3.50 rim and your bike only has a 2.15. Seems like it's a bit too oversized to me.

I ordered a set but they sent me an Enduro D908 (non- Rally Raid) rear by mistake. Totally different tire dispite the almost-the-same name.

The front I recieved is an RR. It is SUPER stiff. I can barely deform the tire by pressing down on a lug and it's not even mounted yet. For my riding I like the looks of the tread pattern on the D908RR rear but wonder if it would be too stiff. :lol:

Well looks like its back to shopping, maybe the 606's but I'm a 80 street 20 dirt rider right now so any recs would help.

I have been running the 606 for about 1200mi & have been happy with them, Im expecting to get about 1800-2000 mi out of the rear. I ride about 80 to 90% dirt. I am going to try the Kenda K760 Trakmaster II on the rear next. I have heard it's better off-road but still has good road maners.
