This tire will handle anything you through at it. I ride alot of motocross style track and mountian trails with rock. Its hard to find a tire that will hold up to the torque my 525 SX puts out, but, this tire will grab anything. For the motocross track its solid through the turns and handles the triples and tables very well. For the rocky muddy or dry terrain in the the mountians its very reliable and provides the traction that you need when your climing those stephills. Recommend the set to anyone with every bike. Stay out of the roost my buddies say it hurts.
The tire is an all around great tire. I ride tight trails and love hillclimbs and this tire definately helps me get through it. I have about 6 hours on the tire and its holding up well. only thing i have against it is the beed did not want to pop no matter what i did to it, i ended up riding with it unpopped and eventually it went. its a good tire and i would buy it again
I got this tire after having used the MH3 and MS3 on My 04 YZ250 and 05 YZ450F. I don't think this tire is even in the same league... I am also somewhat confused on the size difference. I ordered a 110/90-19 this is no where even close to the same size. It is much narrower. But on the plus side I did give it to my son for his Yz250f. I have decided to try out the Maxxis lineup.
This tire impressed me on the first lap of the first ride with it. Was riding on a fairly soft track, not muddy, but soft dirt that had been watered. The tire hooked up great. Rode again last night on different track and was still impressed. Biggest complaint was that it seemed to be nearly impossible to install with my hand tools. Really wishing I had a tire changer! But now that it's on, I love it!
I bought this tire in May of '10 and I have been very pleased with it. Mud holes I used to have to scream through I just cruise though now. This throws up a mean roost! If your bike has a ton of torque you need this tire! This is the only tire that has gripped on my bike, all the others have just spun and gotten me deeper in the hole. I used to run through 2 tires a season of my previous tire selection. 1 Tire a season with this michelin, Now I've made up my mind with this tire.
