Whats your rear size choice, and I aint talkin brunettes ;)

Recommended Posts

Hello All

I run my 650L 100% on road.

I'm gonna (try to .. heh!) figure out what is the widest tire I can fit (that I would benefit from) on the back withour scrubbing the swing arm?

Any suggestions? Or just for the curiosity if you run dual or street, what do you run (tire wise and sizes?)

I'v been runnin the avon roadrunner (model - AM21)120/90/18 (w/ metzler tubes)on the rear of my xr650l. Am going to switch to the Bridgestone BT45 on the rear, and keep the avon AM20 RoadRunner 21" on the front. (it's nice & sticky(

I just cant afford to go to 17"s yet..

Think I'm kind of liking the Bridgestone BT45.

My choices from www.mawonline.com size-wise are:

I use the 150 on the rear of my 650L to me the 160 is just to wide.Try the Conti Super Motard tires.They might not last as long as the street tires but man do they grip.But if you do not do any curves that will not matter.

He's talking about tires for the stock 18/21" rims. I ran the Avon SuperVenom 120/90H18 rear and RoadRunner 90/90H21 front with great results before converting to 17" wheels.

maxxis maxxis maxxis! dtr 3 on the rear pro grip front. you can also go softer on the rear. dtr 1.. nothing we tested works better! and the price is right.. depending on your discount.. 230.00 to 260.00 a set. :cry: a set.. i think the rear is race only.. it is a flat track tire and looks a little strange mounted on a stock rim. but! man do they hook up!!! :cry:
