In general, will mounting tires sized (110/90 -18F) and (120/90 – 18R) make a difference one way or another if a bike has tire/rim sizes to accept (100/90 -18 F) and (110/90 – 18 R) stock by the manufacturer? No clearance issues being a prerequisite.
Wide tyres on small rims tend to make the sidewalls angle wrong and the tyre will tend to squirm around as a result. Sometimes this is not that noticeable - other times it can make a bike damn near unrideable.
What you are suggesting is not too extreme an increase, so it will probably be OK. Although I do have memories of my old GS1150 that had a 130 on the rear standard - when I changed that to a 140 it was an absolute pig to ride.
Yea, I guess it does depend on the bike. I had one bike that I had bought with an oversized front tire; dam thing wouldn’t turn until I place the correct size on it. I think that was like 2 or 3 times bigger though……
Sorry I can't answer your question, but I found this thread 'cause mine is related:
I'm looking for cool looking Enduro/ dual sport tires for my 1980 cb750 (a set) and am having a hell of a time figuring out the "range" of tires that will fit. I have the stock Comstar wheels...everything's stock but the seat, lights, and gauges (for and idea of clearance) 90/90-19 to 100/90-19 on the front? 120/90-18 to 130/80-18 on the back?
is there a such thing as a "range" of tire that fits? What are Honda's recommended sizes? What can/does work? What won't work?
Hello all............recently put a new battery in my 69 cb175. Battery died after a week or so. I only rode it for a total of an hour within that time. It usually takes 6 cranks with starter to get her going so i imagine that's draining the battery significantly. I also have an H4 type bulb...
Is anyone running an older DR650 as a stripped down trail bike or desert sled?
I am currently working on one, and trying to find a good exhaust, tire and seat setup. Open to input and suggestions.
Hey all, new here. Just got myself a 72’ Honda CB100 with a CL100 engine swap. Im replacing the lighting and fenders, but I’m running into an issue with finding compatible lights. Everything that I’ve found that is low profile runs on 12v, but the bikes battery is only 6v. Haven’t done a TON of...
Working on a bike that has a sorted history. Don't know any more about the motor other than it is a '83 or '84 CB or CM 450. Trying to figure out if we need a CDI when rewiring with a Motogadget M Unit?
Would appreciate help as we try to determine a wiring diagram.
