Wait what?

Your rear wheel should be an 18", not a 21".

I run a 130/90 R18 rear tire, so yes. Search for tire sizes on here and you'll find what options are available.

There are quite a few options for tire (tyre) sizes that will fit both front and rear wheels (18 inch and 21 inch).  If you post what size you would like to use, we can tell you if it is OK to use.  Also say if it is a street tire or off-road tire.  For street you should stay closer to the original sizes.

A 140/80-18 is a large tire for the DRZ400 rear wheel.  OK if it is an off road knobby tread but too big for a street tire. A street oriented tire should be no bigger than 120/80-18 to preserve the profile of the tire for good handling.
