Correct, and they came with the bike stock. Very happy with them as my on/off road usage is about 90/10. Offroad usually consists of gravel or compressed sands and some trails, I do not do mud. As far as I know, that's about what they were designed for.

Did you change your front wheel to a 19" rim? If so, there are a couple threads in here on that subject, do you mind adding your experience (and a few pics!!)? Thanks!

It's an 18". I got a used hub from Reaver's bmw supply and a wheel and spokes from Woodys



Woodys sent me a superlace kit but next time I think I would request the standard. The big diameter spokes and 3 cross lacing looks badass but I think makes the spoke holes in the rim the weak link. It's much easier to replace a spoke than a rim, and I am unaware of any spoke failures with the standard lacing. The tire is a dunlop 606 in a 120/90. Pirelli and heidanau also make a tire in that size and shinko makes a couple, a 244 and a 700, in a 4.60x18 which would be the same height as the stock 90/90x21. The 606 is about 1/2" smaller radius so it gives a little more fender clearance for the bigger knobs.
I haven't gotten to ride it a lot but I rode thru some sandy washes that I always have trouble with and it seemed to track a lot better than the skinnier 90/90 which always seemed to want to plow unless I was on the throttle. I'm not a racer and usually poke along so I think I'm going to like it.
It is a little vibey at interstate speeds but not enough to be a problem, it's a knobby. It doesn't make my rotors chatter like the k60 did and I hope it will wear longer than the tkc80. It took a few minutes to get used to not falling into corners as the 21" did, but I tend to like a bike with shorter trail anyway.
So it's an experiment. I still have my stock wheel if I want to change back but so far I think I feel more confident on this setup than on the previous one.
I chose the 18" over the 19" because most of the 19" tires are more road oriented and smaller and that wasn't what I wanted. As far as I know maxxis is the only one making a knobby in a 120/90x19 and that wouldn't have given the fender clearance I wanted for the times when the knob spaces pick up rocks and I like the low fender
