I am running a 15T countershaft sprocket and I find it beneficial in the dirt. You definately use the clutch a lot less in the really tight stuff.

I have been running a Dunlop MX71 Front (90/100-21) and a Mitas E-09 Dakar rear (140/80-17) but I am looking to try a D606 front this week as the MX71's are just chewing out too fast. They work brilliantly on the dirt and are quite respectable on the road for a full knobby but I find the knobs are scalloping out really quickly. I figure the 606 is still fairly dirt orientated (I have run them on DR650's in the past) but with a bit of luck it will hold it's profile a bit better. Time will tell I guess?
