After switching from Yamaha to Suzuki there was a huge difference in handling/cornering. Suspension setup is really crucial on the Suzuki or the bike can be really twitchy and overly sensitive. I still have the woods tire up front on my RM it's okay (brand new when purchased). Had a few sketchy moments in a high speed section when braking hard tire broke traction. Side knobs are already cracking and I have about 10hours on the tire. :cry: I'm such a miser that I'll run crap until it's shot. Every time I look at my ugly orange clutch cover I want to puke.

You are absolutely retarded. What exactly makes this tire shit???? This tire is made for hard pack conditions, and it will last alot longer than a mx32 or mx3s (New 32). The tire is not shit, maybe for you because you may not be riding hard pack conditions and may be riding a soft track which then it wouldn't be as good for you and you will then want the 32 or 3s. So may i ask again how exactly is this tire "Shit"

The 52 is shit because the 32 still rides better even on hard pack lol

Thanks for all the comments guys! Red really wasn't my choice it's my Dad's bike (although I ride it more than my own :lol:) but it's grown on me, I like it!

I've ridden with the 52's for a whole spring and they weren't terrible, but when I switched to the 32.. wow. Huge difference, but no matter how bad the 52 seems compared to the 32, if you are not a big tire guy you can make a 52 last ALOT longer than a 32. I'm with Hoffman though... the 32 is still better even on hard pack, they get roasted fast, but they are better especially the front tire. I won't say it's a shit tire by any means, but the 32 is just the much better. Would be crazy to see what the pro 32's feel like...

Anyone notice how much more of a PIA Dunlops are to put on to any other tire? I hate putting tires on in general, but man it's a recipe for a bad night when I gotta put a fresh Dunlop on.

My tire changing skills improved since we were in California. Lay that bitch out in the sun for a bit, and it's easy as hell even for my fat fingers.

One thing I realized I was wrong about tires was setting the correct PSI. Too low a pressure could lead to premature chunking of the tire. Some of the woods guys I know run really low PSI with the correct tire and the side knobs still crack and chunk. I just feel the MX52 front for the price is too expensive and works well on a very narrow terrain (mainly hardpack not well on intermediate as claimed). The performance of the 32 compared to the 52 is way different and you expect much more from Dunlop. Luckily there are so many different tire brands out there, but then choices :/. A lot of the guys around here are running Golden Tyre. Heck even some of the Chinese/Thailand tires aren't that bad just have to experiment.

I'm very happy with my X40 rear it's holding up very well.

Extremely impressed with everything that Blake does! The applicator was a big help and I am loaded up on stickers! The material is sturdy, but easy to work with, and the adhesive is awesome. I recommend FAMmx to anyone looking for graphics. Big thanks to August for designing the graphics, and big thanks to Blake for the awesome material and work!
