Thanks and sorry to hear about the deer

I would say there is about 3/4 inch space between flap and tire. Axel is back about 1/2 inch from forward position. 49 tooth sprocket. Not sure about chain length, a size up from stock though.

Lol. All I can say is I ran both. Prefer the 110 over the 120. Had two bikes one with each size on it at the time.

Well now we're talking about 3 different sizes. I wouldn't put a 100 on. 110 would be fine. If you have a 120, just try it. I think you are over-thinking it.

The truth is tires very a great deal from one brand to another when it comes to size.

A 120 T-63 Michelin is the perfect size. Other tires might be different. A lot people make the mistake of thinking a "bigger" tire is better and get one that is way to big. At least you are thinking smart and not putting some huge tire under the back of your bike that will cause clearance issues. I doubt any 120 will do that.

While doing the EXUP removal a question came to my mind. For those of you with an FMF header and can, did the can come with a mid pipe? The header only gets to about where the EXUP valve is.
