Comments about Pirelli MT 16 Motorcycle Tire:
I ride a Honda XR 400 R in New England for Enduros and Turkey runs. It has a White Brother's exhaust system and an Edelbrock "pumper" carb. I use the Perelli MT 16 tires in the front and rear. For the early spring when it's wet and muddy I use the 120/10-18 on the rear; when the season gets dry I switch to the 110/100-18. A few words of caution; these rear tires are bigger than the standard Dunlops even though they have the same "size" rating. I changed the stock 45 tooth rear sprocket to a 48 tooth to compensate for the larger tire OD. Also, the stock rim lock can't handle the traction, the tire will slip on the wheel; I replaced it with a larger size. Finally, for changing these rear tires I use 3 MotionPro spoon type tire irons ( from Bike Bandit) and Windex for a lube. View the BB video on tire changing, it's very helpfull.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have this tire on a WR450F 05 and I tried a lot of tires on this bike and this is the one!! I went up to the 120 -18 for the first time, and it hooks up. I ride in New England and we have a mix of rocks TONS of roots and MUD this year!! I have not once got stuck slid out or had a scary moment. I came back to buy and other to get ready for next year. I ride 2 times a week about 3 solid hours of ride time, and this has been on for almost 9 weeks and is half worn. I came off the 604 it was BAD news.. I can do crazy wheelies now when I use to spin.. BUY THIS TIRE!!
