It is a larger tire than an MT-43 which I've been using on both bikes for a while with great results. Have a Motoz hybrid going on the 500, and will be getting one for the 690 soon.

As an A senior rider, I'll say I'm not fast enough to hurt these bikes, and never saw any other in the class that was. South of 7k? Someone will snap it up quick.

As long as it has cush hub, and is designed to fit the 690 as 690 rear hubs are 10mm wider than 500cc and below models, should work fine.

The 690 just feels bigger, and more comfortable on long trips and any pavement riding. Doesn't really require more maintenance other than slightly more frequent oil changes.

Agreed. I really miss the grunt of the 530 motor, this 500 with exc fuel mapping is less than exciting, but hoping that a vortex ecu fixes that. Handles great though.

That would require a Clake m/c. more likely it's just clutch m/c to rear brake m/c. No manual clutch function. Works great like that, no need for clutch operation with a rekluse.
