I recently put one of the on the front of my KTM 200 exc and I like it. It keeps me confident the front end wont wash out on me. The places I ride have a variety of terrain ranging from hard pack dirt, mud, sand, clay, and small loose rock up to softball sized rock and these tires seem to perform well in all of it.

I use this tire on my CRF250R and love the traction, feedback, and durability that this tire provides. I had been a Michelin S12 fan for years but my bike came with this tire and I've now switched.
My use is A class racing of Hare Scrambles and Enduros.
Great grip in all conditions and wear well
I've used this tire on soft and hard dirt and it grips better than any other front tire I have ever run!
Grip is terrible in hard pack, making your front end want to wash out badly. It all chunked very easily, which i didn't expect from a front tire. All in all, it looks cool, grips bad, and isn't durable.
Bought the combo set, excellent price,excellent customer service and most important excellent product. I would highly recommend these tires for durability, price, and performance. We LOVE Motosport and will continue to purchase through them.
I'm not the best person to rate tire performance, but the tire went on smoothly, looks good, has some agressive knobbies and hasn't washed out and dumped me yet.
I have bought several sets of the M403 and M404 tires. They are great overall performers. They hook up is nasty conditions and give the rider an excellent and confident feel.
i would consider this more a soft terrain tire...it works good on sand and soft dirt..BUT on any hard dirt the cornering grip is terrible
First time trying this tire, so far.... so good! It grips pretty well on slick hard pack clay. I like the larger tire in front, more tire surface on the ground!
This tire comes factory on the Yamaha YZ250f. It's perfect for sand. I prefer it over the Dunlop MX51.
wears well and performs great!
Good intro tire for beginners - pros on any condition track. Faster riders may prefer something else to cater to their specifc needs.
Great Traction, like them better then the MX51 Dunlops
Hooked up good when I first got them, easy to install. No complaints would rate it a 5 if it wore a little better.
The M403 is a fairly predictable tire as long as you tread lightly in loose powder over hard pack.
This tire does however, perform well in the various conditions it was designed for, which don't include sand or mud. The M403 wears remarkably well and is a workable front tire choice if you only get to pick one, but it will be the weak link in an M403 / M404 tire combo.
I love these tires but my bike (2010 CRF250)handled better with the 80/100-21 size tire than it did with the 90/100
I put this on my YZF450 to try them over my usual Dunlop MX51 (also great tire). These have very good grip in the desert and track and I have no complaints. The rear tire doesn't provide as much grip as the Dunlop but does give you a more controlled slide; predictable. I would have to say the Dunlops have slightly better grip and outstanding durability and these Bridgestones are a tad less in grip but are more predictable and controlled when you have lost traction on the gas or sliding. I can't speak to the durability yet, but they are wearing very well.
I bought these tires for my bike CRF250R and my son's bike KX85. They last a lot longer than the Dunlop tires that we had previously, and they provide just as much grip. We mainly ride tracks, but do ride the trails some too.
This tire is great, also paired with the rear as well. Get those stock tires off and these tires on. These grab great in loamy / sandy tracks, which is usually what I ride. This tire, paired with the rear, has improved my riding ten fold because I can now actually ride with confidence that my tires wont slide out.

If you want a mud and sand tire, look more at a soft tire like a Dunlop MX11.
