I'm actually using a TKC in the stock size... 120/70/17, and the Full Bore in a 150/70/17. The Full Bore is almost identical with the Shinko 705, but with a higher speed rating.
When I get home, I'm eventually going to raise the front fender, and try a 120/90-17 on the front. Outside diameter will be a nice compromise between a 17" and 19" wheel.
Dave is unbelievable. He'll be in Whitehorse tomorrow. I think he's ahead of schedule. I'm not sure why he didn't take the side trip to Hyder/Stewart. The bike must be running okay-
