Tires. Honda specs the CRF450 with a Dunlop D756 on the rear and a D742 on the
front. This is a paradox, because we wouldn’t choose to run the 742 under any
circumstances, but we love the 756 (as both a rear and front tire). Amazingly, you
cannot buy either the 742 or the 756 at a dealership. They have been discontinued. We
opt for Bridgestone 403/404 tires or a Dunlop MX31 front tire mated with an MX51 rear. We
never run a 120 width rear tire on the CRF450—preferring to stick with a 110 width.
