    I have been thinking of doing so - it's just hard to take off a tire that's so new! But safety first, although I have had no problems with the stock tire on pavement thus far. It does seem to washout in mud/snow/gravel etc.

    Mudbugs has the 241 on it and it makes a huge difference. I was like you, Didn't want to take off a perfectly good stock tire but after getting them changed and going for a spin I learned that the perfectly good stock tire isn't so perfectly good. Its not even the same machine handling wise. you just think you enjoy it now, wait till you have a new tire on it

    What is the difference in 241 vs 244 - I am probably gonna be about 30 street/70 dirt which one would be the better fit?

    I bought my sig other a TW last year and found myself riding it more than my other ds. Plus it was hard to stay in contact with her because of the differences. I'm now deciding if I need my "other" ds as much as I thought.
    The TW's gets taken out weekly and it's easier to go on two TW's than it and something else that isn't as fun.

    I only have experience with the SR241 on a bigger ds and it worked very well on and offroad.

    Im not totally sure between the 2, Mudbug is mostly Dirt and I know her's works very well for that

    Not sure what the real world difference is, i went based on what i perceived to be a slight edge in mud clearing based on the design. That sounds way better than i just liked the looks better, right?
    Im sure someone will chime in with actual design facts soon enough.

    There really isn't all that much difference in design, but there is in available sizes. The 244 can be had up to 5.10-18, and the 241 only up to 4.00-18. This corresponds closely to the OEM. For me personally, riding in generally rocky conditions off-road, the lighter weight of the 241 and its great performance on the road was the clincher. I tried a friends 244 in 5.10-18 and didn't like it all that much.....it was a bit more work. If I rode mostly in soft dirt and sand and little 60 mph pavement I would probably prefer the 244. Either one is 1,000 % better than the OEM.

    Just looking at the tread of the 244 vs the 241, one would think the 244 would grip better in dirt, but that has not been my experience.....I've never had the 241 let go yet. Now if you want extreme dirt performance and never ride on the street, then the Kenda 760 would be ideal.
