Love em, mainly on the rear. They last the longest, the exact miles is directly correlated to my level of anger.

They will run flat too, without destroying a rim if you aren't a whistle dick about it.

I'm in the market for a set and at that price that would be awesome. Heck even just the rear at $60, I would be happy.
as much as i would like to say there is a store selling them for this price, i simply cannot.

I found them on craigslist

I figured as much, but had to ask to make sure. Congrats on finding an awesome deal!

606

I have a set of 606's on my '07 EXC450. I;ve used 606's, MT21's and Kenda Trackmasters and have found the MT21 might get you a bit longer service life, The Kenda is the best offroad in dirt and mud and the 606's are a decent compromise between the two. I've used them all on DRZ400's, EXC450's RXC400's and RXC620's.

This.

My 530EXC has a set that was installed by the previous owner. They are perfectly fine in a straight line: braking, accelerating, climbing, etc. But have no edge grip at all, just skating around corners, and not holding worth a crap on sidehills. I attribute this to the stiff sidewalls. The 950 guys like the front 606 with the 908RR rear, and we've heard from KLR riders in this thread who like them, so it must be the weight/sidewall stiffness thing.

Granted, I'm talking about eastern woods and grass track conditions where the 606 shouldn't be expected to work like a full knobby. I'm about to swap them out for a set of Kenda Washougal Stickies.
