I'm thinking Pirelli Scorpion XC MH for the front and the Kenda K760 for the rear. The Kenda is almost the same tread pattern as my Bridgestone M402 but is cheaper and DOT rated. I can't find my Bridgestone front any more. KTM now stocks my bike with Dunlop GEOMax MX51s FR and RR, but not sure I'm that interested right now with all the suggestions above.

Got my new treads mounted today. Looking pretty good with new rubber. Pulls wheelies much better too. What do I do with the old tires?

In a former life we'd drink too much, climb a giant dune, light them on fire, and chase them back down again. Not really sure why but wed have about 10 going at once. I guess it was a way to sober up for the next day of riding!!! Now-a-days I just recycle them

The recycling center at the landfill accepts tires and takes them down to Sedalia to Front Range Tire Recycling. You can drop tires off with them for free, they shred them into landscape mulch and track surfaces.

Any tire shop will take them for a couple of bucks. Last year I found an ad for BigO that waived the tire disposal fee for a weekend so I cleared out the worn tire collection.

Ok in the sprit here, and given the fact that my front tire is already laying on the garage floor, I went ahead and ordered tires last night. Neither of mine are DOT, so I wanted to legitify myself... plus new tires is cool. Decided to go Marco front/Subzali rear- Pirelli Scorpion Pro FIM and Kenda K760.

I also ordered a Bridgestone M404 by mistake, thinking it was DOT somehow (it ain't). Anyone want/need it? If not I'll be returning it as soon as it gets here...
