    i'd like to but i'm a bit broke after buying it in the first place

    planning to change the stock tyres for pirelli sports dragons next week but i might even hold off on that because the stock tyres don't seem too bad
    Pirelli Sport Dragons are a splendid tyre....

    Replaced the standard IRC tyres on my CRF250M with them - 100% improvement...

    3900b the pair, fitted...

    agree - 1,000b fine here....

    But i fitted an IXIL LX3 pipe (8,900 b from K Speed)...only a tad louder than the stock pipe, but much better looking..

    been stopped a few times and never a problem

    I have a few bikes and unless I ride them hard I cannot see the difference
    You can have the best tyres in the world but it will be made nil and void by the state of the tarmac you are riding on, spend your money on the right gear in case you have an off
    Good luck with the bike cmn and ride safe mate

    The IRC's take a long time to warm up, and the grip diminishes shorter into their life.

    They've also got far less grip in the wet.

    Was there a performance improvement that was noticable?

    The new ones are quite nice, but the first thing I would do is change the pipes. I would think a set of strait pipes would sound nice with the 650.

    I have a Scorpion taper red with baffles out. Never been stopped and a quick rev bomb is much more effective than a toot of the horn. Never been stopped for the exhaust.

    Pirelli Dragons on CRF250M

    I read with interest the comments on how the Pirelli is a great improvement over the stock IRC tyres. Do people stay with the original sizes i.e. 110/70 and 130/70 or go for a 140/70 rear?

    Many thanks.
