XR 650R dirt bike Tire Setup

Post  babuja on Sat Sep 15, 2012 3:15 pm

It's time to change tires and wondering about this set (stock rims):

Front: Michelin Desert 90/90-21
Rear: Michelin CROSS COMP. S12 XC 140/80-18

or

Front: Dunlop GEOMAX ENDURO F.I.M. 140/80-18
Rear: Dunlop GEOMAX ENDURO F.I.M. 90/90-21

Cheers
Cesar

I've told you already, there are basic plans to head your way. Langewand/Doodsakker ("Long wall/Death acre"), the stretch of narrow beach in the South is on my 2do list, and once survived Luanda's not too far then anymore Cool
