u think its uncomfortably loud. I'm in the city so really don't care. I just don't want to be swapping baffles every 50 hours like the big gun.(at least that's what I heard)

I am certainly not the well of knowledge I have been doing the dirtbike thing for about 35 years, but there are several others rattling around in here who have forgotten more about bikes than I'll ever know.

Chains... I run a DID 520V o-ring chain. I think DID has stopped making the 520V. They have pretty much gone away from o-rings and now use x-rings almost exclusively. I have not used an x-ring chain yet, but am certain that I will when the current chain throws in the towel (about 5000 miles on it and still showing no signs of wear). Make sure your sprockets are in good shape... I usually replace sprockets and chain as a set... Opinions vary on that point though.

Folds into a pouch and you can damn near disassemble your bike with it.
Breaker on one end, spoons on the other. It was a cold winters day when I installed new shoes on the pig. Both tires went on easy.

OK, thanks red. IMA jump on the DID. And get the x ring. I'll keep you posted. I bought the 650r front sprocket cause it gives less play and will replace the rear while I'm at it.

I'm trying a MT21 for the first time from a D606 myself on the rear, let us know what you find is different if any? I don't want to give my opinion of what I have found until you get some miles on it, I will then give my report so far on the switch to the Surge I front tire as well.

I've read several places that the best combo for an XRL is a 606 rear and MT21 front.

This has been my preferred tire combination. The 606 rear is a given but the 606 front wears really fast from braking and the knobs go to hell quickly. That is why I have liked the MT21 front as it lasts longer.

What I will be installing on a spare set of wheels is a 606 rear and a more dirt oriented knobby front tire. Something like a Pirelli XCMH or the Scorpion Pro. I'm not concerned with tire life as I am with grip. Especially in the turns. Dirt turns that is.

One thing about the Mt21s, the 130 and 140 series are a lot more aggressive than the 120.

A fair front match is also the XCMH front, decent street manners, no more skiing the front on thin mud.

Ive been much happier with the T63 front over the M21. With around 1200 miles the knobs have worn strange strange just like a T63 but it makes it feel funny when turning. Im gonna turn it around but seeing I did the 1200 miles in 4 weeks of "occasional" riding its a pain in the ass

If it's too loud for you you can get the quiet inserts for the DG's for about $30 each on ebay.

Several of us on here are running the RK brand X-ring chains and like them a lot. Higher strength rating than needed and works well. I believe it's called the EXW-ring.

Yes, the little keeper will be used with the XRR sprocket, and the XRR sprocket goes on flat side out (technically backwards).
