TIRES!!??? I can't believe this...

Dunlop, Michelin, Avon, Metzler, Bridgestone, Maxxis, Perelli.... I can't find one single manufacturer who makes a decent, agressive 17" dualsport tire.
It's looking like the only option is those shitty Trackmaster II's
I have a 95 KLX650.... What are you guys using???

If you want a DOT approved D739, then this is it:

However, the 17" will take you anywhere you want to go....
Santa Cruz Mountains '07 KLR650 -
Entire Epic Ridge Series was shot from the seat of a stock '07 KLR650 with D606's.
Be advised though, they wear out quick on the street if that matters to you.

They're dual compound, and they seem to be wearing phenomenally. I use my KLR for work (lots of tilled fields, crossing canals, climbing embankments etc...) and it's not on par with the trackmaster, but waaayyy ahead of the kenda 270. It's fairly quiet on the road, the profile is also quite a bit nicer in corners, though the rear is a tad small-looking for the big bike.
