Rear - 120/90 - 18 - ran at 32 psi
Were no rub issues front or rear.
Not to hijack.....................but
I too am looking for dual purpose tires but for a 1981 R100.
I live in Northern New Mexico where dirt, gravel and forest service roads are unavoidable.
Pavement 70%, off-pavement 30%.
Here's the "new to me" bike.
So, moosehead, you had "no" problems mounting the larger than recommended tire sizes?
What's the advantage to the larger size? What's the disadvantage?
How's the mileage?
At this point,
I would go with 110/90 - 18 rear
100/90 - 19 front
Motog...............Thanks for starting this thread!
