Great advice from Planalp. That's definitely a tire designed for use on the front. As Planalp said a rear isn't made in KLR sizing.
Here is some info about the tire I found.
Brand new from Pirelli comes the Night Dragon, the first pavement peeling muscle tire dedicated to V-Twin cruisers, customs and choppers. Driven by racing technology, the Night Dragon is aggressively designed for PERFORMANCE and styled for stance; the Night Dragon intimidates when prowling or parked.
The Night Dragon is a unique, premium product oriented to Harley- Davidson® and metric-cruiser riders demanding gripperformance with forceful style. Today's custom cruisers and hot-rodded V-twins with increased engine sizes, more torque, more horsepower, and upgraded suspensions, create a combination demanding tires dedicated to driving that performance to the pavement of America's highways.
The Night Dragon's street-wise tread pattern blends biker style with riding performance by maximizing the contact patch for fast warm up, quickly giving the rider confidence of stability and traction. The hydrodynamics of its groove placement ensures efficient draining in wet riding conditions; the Night Dragon's front tread design cuts a path through water for the rear, and the calibrated grooves of rear tire disperse the residual water, for controlled grip in all conditions.
