I have Maxxis Razor 2's and there awesome. I just ordered the HD's for my friend's 450R and they will be here by Friday. I will be able to give you a review by next week. As far as drag is concerned, I would think maybe the MX tires(18")on the rear would be better because there smaller and you would get more low end. The HD's are made for woods riding and trails. Basically for aggrassive riding in aggressive terrain. B)

Hey Rico. How do you like those Razor 2s. I was wanting to get some but I dont want the added weight. Could you tell much of a difference. those 6 ply tires are heavy. they are like 14 pounds a piece...I ride mostly woods and trail and I dont seem to have much of a problem with the 4 ply tires. they seem pretty tough as long as you watch where your going. The only thing that has punctured my 4 ply tire is a nail, and It would have went through the 6 ply tire to. So it almost seems to me like the added weight is worth it. But since you have them, can you give your opionion. thanks.

Are stock tires heavy or light? I have great hook up with the stock ones in all conditions. No one like them or what?

thats funny, I thought the same thing. Until I strapped on a set of Razors. There is no compaison. The stock ones suck, you just dont know until you put on some good tires.... B)

The thing I would worry about if there is even more hook up is keeping the front wheels on the ground. I put the HRC kit and a 13T and it's a wheelie machine now. Which is cool by me

The stocker's are good tires for the average guy. Once you start riding hard though, the tires begin to roll in corners and that's when you can really appreciate the aftermarket tires. The stocker's hook up good and turn good. But, once you try the Maxxis or Holeshots you will wonder why you waited so long to change them. I just recieved the HD's yesturday for my friends 450R. As soon as I know I will post something about them. One thing for sure, is that they look allot like the maxxer's. The rear is beefy and the front are much narrower. They are a good looking tire and I can't wait to see how they do! B)

I'm sure it's aleast a few pounds heavier. But, the traction and streeing you will get will be awesome. My friend is putting them on today. So I should have something for you next week. ^_^

OK, we tried the HD's this weekend and they are a pretty darn good. The fronts are taller and skinner and the backs are way nobby. I would recomend them to anyone that want's aggresive tires. They really hold on to the road yet they slide really well. The steering is excellent too. Holeshot did a great job with these tires. There just as good as the Razor 2's, two thumbs up: :D
