Also, what sizes are you guys using? The yamaha book has them listed as 80/100-21 front, and 110/100-18 rear. But the catalogs/sites have sizes like 4.00 , 4.50. 5.10 I guess those are inch sizes.
Have any of you tried the IRC-110 ?

If you want a smoother ride, then Shinko 244 (rear only), Pirelli MT21 or Dunlop 606. I like the Shinko rear with a Metzeler Karoo T front for a smooth ride. the Dunlop and Pirelli are a little more aggresive, don't wear as evenly, and are louder on the road.

Michelin X-11 trial - like super glue, not so great on road, but doable.
Pirelli MT43 - super awesome on street, good on trails, but not quite the glue. Still better than a knob on dry trails.
Maxxis Desert IT - I have run it flat all day, lasts on street a bit longer than D606, still grips well if you air way down
I was tempted to run a motoz but the guy who sells motoz by me said the Deserr IT will last longer on the street.
If you think a d606 is hard to mount, slather it up with boat loads of soapy water or wd40. Makes all the difference.
