D606 vs D739FA

I need a new front tire. I went with a D739AT rear tire last time and even though their website says both of these fronts match it really doesn't give any info. Which one is tougher and any pros and cons? The 606 only comes in 90/90-21 which is not the oem size, any probs with this or advantages? Thanks:ride:

if your looking a a 606 front dont do it.i hated mine .bought a mt 21.w a 606 on the rear best tires for my bike

IMHO, the Pirelli 606 for the front is awful.

Try a Dunlop 952, or MX71, or Pirelli Scorpion 454 or 486

Have a MX51- run higher pressures (18). Works great. Sticks good and has extra girth- (100).

Have yet to try the 71 but I think it may be too hard for these bikes except for Baja.

I May try one on the XR.

I would stay away from the 606 except on a heavy dual sport.

952 or mx 71

I have had/have both on my bike. Right now I have the 71's and love them! I took the bike out for the first ride on them 2 weekends ago. I went out to the north scottsdale area for those in phoenix who know the area; for those who don't know, it is a rocky/ small pebbles, large pebbles, river beds, hard back, a lot of single track, etc.. area.

The tires washed out when I wanted them to and didn't when I needed grip. I could corner the bike on any surface out there and feel comfortable. From a stop to full throttle, there was plenty grip in anything. The sand felt pretty good, not as good as a 952, but still better than most tires I have tried. I rode for about 5 hours, I wasn't keeping track, but I heard close to 80 or so miles and you can tell I have some wear, but everything still looks pretty sharp and ready for my track ride this next weekend!

The 952's a great all around tire for the rear. It lasts long and gets decent grip everywhere you take it. Hard, soft, mud, etc....

Right on guys thanks. After reading this and talking to other people I'm thinking of going with the 745 or the 71. I ride all desert so these seem better suited:ride:

      Anyone having or had problems with the starter not turning over easily on the 450X???
      I have read about this problem on CRF's ONLY and not seen anyone come up with a fix.
      Problem being is that you think there is a problem with the battery, when infact the battery is OK. When you have a good fully charged battery in the bike and press the e-start, it turns over very slowly.
      I have checked the electrical circuit and it seems OK. I am wondering if it might be the starter itself - any suggestions?????

      I've studied the Jetting sticky's but still have a number of questions:
      I bought my '06 a couple of years ago and had a smog block-off kit installed and the pilot jet was upsized to a 48 and the air box opened up top only. The bike has appeared to run a little lean at times and got hot on a couple of occasions in elevation and on one other occasion. I'm looking at upping the main jet to either a 165 or 170 to help with the possible lean condition. The bike currently has a 142 main jet in it which I believe is the stock size. It looks like the most widely used Needle Jets are the JD Red, but it doesn't look like they are sold separately, is this correct?
      I was going to also get a 45 pilot to have options for further tuning. My assumption is that every bike is a little different and that where you ride is going to have a lot to do with jetting. We ride mostly, mojave desert, baja, and southern Utah with elevations from sea level to 9,000 feet but the higher elevations are generally for a short period as we generally continue through the peaks and head back down.
      I'm looking to convert from a stock exhaust to possibly an FMF Q4. I want something a little throatier but not overly loud and will provide a balanced flow of intake/exhaust.
      So can I get the JD Red Needle Jet by itself or can I get by using the stock and move the clip and be just as happy. I'm just looking to enhance overall performance of the engine and maintain reliability.
