So Spud, do the D952's last as long as the D606's overall? And how do the T63's fare against the other 2?

So while we are on the subject of tire, I am planning on trying the D952s also. Which front tire is a good match? I am afraid that the D952 front would be sketchy on pavement.

I didn't point the finger at any particular individual, but you seem to feel you're included in a general statement.
Your post is a fine example of the attitude that has become prevalent here. The threatening behavior while on the other side of a computer monitor is one reason I don't post much on here or TT anymore, because I'm not going to get into an online argument with some loud mouth who doesn't care to be rational.
I really don't remember having any problem with you, ever, and though some of the things you brought here are useful, I won't soon forget your attitude now.
All of the childish responses go a long way in showing the character of people on here. A lot of the spelling and sentence structure is terrible too.

Onederer- I don't know who you are or what your trying to do, but I appreciate the guys on here posting up different things they do with the 650's. I take what they do and say as their personal opinion and not the only way to do things, because I also have my own opinion. Nobody had an attitude until you posted and bad-mouthed the group, since you didn't pick out one particular person, then I'm not sure exactly who you referred to in your negative post. Maybe a better way to get your message to the individual you intended it for would be to PM them directly, but that's just my opinion.
Maybe by posting this, I have drawn attention to myself and you will say something negative towards me, but I don't hold grudges and neither should you.

I have to ask the collective the question....why the DOT? Do you guys really have a problem inspecting tires at the shop or are you afraid of the law? In my many years of riding, no one ever paid attention to my tires including inspection stations....[New Jersey might have a problem]...what gives???

The only reason they pull you over is that you did something stu-bid. A non compliance tire is minor!?? Suckitup.

If your shop will not inspect your bike because of a tire,,,find a new shop!!!

eee

If your state requires DOT tires for inspection, why not install a cheap DOT tire for the inspection, then put a good, non-DOT knobby tire on the bike afterwards.

I like the tread pattern of the D952 rear tire much better than the tread pattern of the MX71 rear tire. Also, I believe hard terrain tires are usually manufactured with a softer rubber compound than intermediate terrain tires. The D952 tire is constructed of a nice, hard rubber compound similar to the D606 tire, so I get excellent wear from my D952 tires. Therefore, I'm done experimenting with rear tires; I'm sticking with the D952.

Incidentally, I've tried the MX51 front tire on my 200cc trail bike, and I liked it. However, I don't think the MX51 front tire would last very long mounted on the XR650L.

I'm running D952's front and rear. Can't believe how well they handle on pavement, except for stopping. The back tire just slides when braking aggressively. The back tire howls like a banshee at around 45 mph. It does get quieter after about 55 mph though :) Dirt performance is great though. The D952 front works great on both dirt and pavement. I may try a less aggressive rear like the Kenda 720 just to see how it wears and if it is any quieter.

My D952 rear tires have lasted much longer than the D606 rear tire. Both tires are manufactured from a similar rubber compound. However, if kept inflated at 26 psi, the D952 tread pattern wears much more evenly than the D606 tread pattern. Therefore, the D952 will keep hooking up off road for a longer time than the D606, and the rounder profile will corner better on pavement for a longer time.

I was very disappointed with my T63 rear tire. The T63 was awful in any kind of mud, and I was surprised to discover how quickly it wore out. I won't be buying any more Michelin, T63 tires.

My CST, Surge I, front tire works very well both on pavement and off road. Although this tire is never advertised as such, it is DOT approved.





I stocked up on the CST, Surge I, front tires when Chaparral was selling then for $37, delivered. However, when my stash of Surge I, front tires is used up, I plan to try the D952 front tire. Thanks for the good report, Jay.

Spud

There are states that require inspection? I live in Stupfornistan and we don't have inspections here, cept for when you leave the dealership. But if its at the dealership its in DOT form anyways. You would think that if they required inspections anywhere, it would be here.

I'm curious as to what these inspections are like. Anyone want to explain?

I would suspect that it would never really matter unless you got into a wreck. Then you might get phucked.
