Personally I've had great success with the Duro HF903/904, but I don't know if they're available in the correct rear size.

I have always wondered about the GP110 myself. But the Duros have done so well both on and off road, that with the price they are, I just won't change. Oh, I run them on a 650, was just nosing around in this thread.
Hello Mark,

Thanks for the clarification, I believe I have seen your avatar on some RR's and 650 forums
ps the Motorcycle-superstore still sells them: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ront-Tire.aspx
