Stock Dunlops? I am a tried and true Michelin S-12 man myself but they are a soft terrain and fairly fast wearing tire. The Dunlops are a decent All Terrain tire I suppose but nothing puts the power to the ground like S-12's :excuseme:

Maxxis IT, (Especially Desert IT's) will last along time but not alot of people care for the performance of the front :bonk:

And it sounds like people are suggesting the Maxxis IS for the front?

(i'm going to make my first tire purchase and am just starting the research)

I went through the stock rear tyre in about 400kms (250 mile). It was really crap with no grip. Being a FIM tyre, the knobs are shorter to start with.

I get about 1500km (950 mile) out of a Dunlop 952 in comparison, with 10x the grip everywhere! The 952 front kicks ass too!

Change your tyres, the stockers are crap. It is one of the best mods you could do. Especially the front tyre!
