Anyone know the biggest/ wides tire I could put on my 1980 1100? I've always loved teh look of a bike with a wide front tire nad would like a little more in back. Right now it has 130/90/16 on rear and 100/90/19 on front. thanks

Your rear wheel must have been changed out, because the stock 80-81 rear wheel is a 130/90/17. Your running the widest tire as it is on your bike, although I believe it just might be possible that if that is a 16 inch wheel, you might be able to squeeze a 140/80/16 Battleaxe Stone on the rear with a slight massage of the driveshaft tube because of a slightly different swingarm on the 82-83. I'd suggest an 82 or 83 front wheel using your brake rotors for the front, since you would have a little better selection for a front tire than you have now.:waving:

100/90/19 is as bis as it gets for the 1980-81. The 1982 can take a 120/18 and as far as I know that is the maximum.

My 81 came with a 110/90/19 (Same size as shownin Owner's manual) on the front, until I changed it out to a 82 wheel. But his question referenced the rear wheel also.:smiler:

Wish I would of had my owners manual. My bike has a 100/90/19 on the front so that is what I ordered and the 130/90/16 for the rear
