Welcome! I dont post much but lurk daily. I have an 09 KLR bought it new in 10 and have about 13k on it. I ride about 70-80% dirt roads. My .02 on tires: Ran stock tires 2 rear to 1 front. Tried Shinko E700s.Good traction (way better than stock) but the rear wore out at 1800 miles. Put a Shinko 244 on the rear and still have the 700 on the front and wearing well. Have about 3800 on the 244. Good traction in dirt, again way better than stock and some better on dry pavement but it is loud.
