The Pirelli MT21 on my DR650 behaves similarly to your description of the Kenda front on the DR350. I read once where someone thought the 650 was too heavy for the MT21. When it wears out I think I'll put a T63 front on.

I haven't had the 350 long at all, but have been in some deep sand and plenty of post-snow & ice slop, and the Scorpion Pro front has been fantastic, along with the Trakmaster II rear.

You should've come on my "dirty road tour" two weekends ago with the state ride-to-lunch crowd. That was my shakedown ride on the 350, and I grinned so much that my face hurt.
I have run the perelli scorpion pro front tire on my 650 and liked it better than ANY other tire I have had on it. It will behave like it does on your 350 so if you like that I would recommend giving it a try on the 650 as well. I have heard bad things about the T63 front. I have a T63 rear and perelli front on mine right now and it is great. It makes grave roadl feel like you are on rails.
