New Tires

About to replace the front and rear tires on my YZ400. Going to try Dunlop 952 front and rear... I noticed today that my bike's previous owner put on a Pirelli 90/90-21 in front. Thinking about going back to the stock 80/100 but not sure how this will change my ride. I ride mostly technical woods trails - a lot of tight, rocky areas with some sandy stuff mixed in. Anyone else running a 90/90?

No but let me know how the 952 is I would stick with the stock width on the front tire.

MICHELINE!!!! No Question bout it IMO-The best hands down. MS3's :lol:

I run MS3's also just curious about the Dunlop 952. . .suppose to last forever.

Choice of tires depend mostly on the dirt you run them on. Consider that when you see recommendations from areas with much different terrain than yours. The 952 is a lower priced, very versatile tire that wears well. That from a SoCal rider.

Not trying to jack the thread.How does the 952 hold up against chipping?Like from gravel roads? I ride gravel alot to my riding areas and need a tire that holds up to that. Thanks.

Anyone know when the Dunlop MX51 will be available?

Motorcycle Superstore had them listed on sale, but said the rear tire was unavailable

It is a little more susceptible to block chunking or chipping (but not the complete tearing off of blocks) than a Maxxis IT, but it hasn't been a big problem for me. Where I mostly see that is on sand climbs that have buried rock in them. Rocky trails themselves don't seem to be a big deal.

I was told from my local dealer yesterday that they will have the geomax tires in three weeks.

Dunlop Geomax MX51 tires are in but am a little concerned where they are being made. Indonesia by Sumi rubber, still remember when Michelin S12's went to Thailand and the tires did not hold up. Looking at a new Dunlop 756 I have waiting to be mounted its made in Japan by Sumitomo rubber industries.
