THe Bike Bandit guy (Dave) told me it woudl be 10mm taller, but I am not sure whether he was talkign merely SIZE (80 stock to 90 on 606....), or if the larger knobs were taken into account.
THere might be clearance problems with stock front fender(???)
Stock set-up is minimal as it is, gumbo mud or even an occassioanl rock got sucked thru mine dragging between fender & tire.

Once I get down to pick up my re-worked T-Dub at Dauntless Motors, I'll measure stock tire vs. 606.
