Wingdawg, I just responded to your post at the other site. What year 1100 do you have? The 140/90 is OEM for 82's and newer, 130/90 up to 82.

I don't have an answer if the wider tyre will work if you have an older bike.

"Tyre?!!, good lord it's rubbing off on me!!:cheeky1::clapper:)

Hobie, continentally challenged.:)

Won't work on teh 1980 as the swingarm is about 10mm narrower, the wider tyre will just rub the swinger.
