This bike is so beautiful.
I do not know how wide of Shinko MT90-16 E240. is bigger than 150?
I got another bike is T100, the rear tire I use 150/70-17 (wheel 3.5j)the original tire was 130/80-17. The dealer told me 150 is biggest size I can use. or I need to change another wheel "Excel or Kineo"...the Bobber rear wheel is 3.5J too...but just 16 inch...So I want to know....160 is safe or not?


My project is to change to the Shinko MT90-16 E240 in the back and with Bridgestone Accolade AC03 100/90-19 in front.

According to jpcycles.com the tire size of the MT90-16 E240 is 130/90-16 thus 130. But that fits well as old style is more towards narrow than wide tires

It's all down to choce, I popped a 190 on the back of the 955 triple, expensive mistake as it came off again 50 miles later, felt like the bike was wallowing in corners, that extra little bit on the profile was a turn off for turnins.
