    That’s the size that I was interested to try, but convinced myself that it wouldn’t fit.
    Does the tyre still clear the exhaust hanger and are you able to retain the centre stand? (Not that last bit is relevant on a combination - just achedemic curiousity!).

    No mods. No spacers. Just mount and go.  I run the tire at about 40 psi to keep the tpms from squawking.  I barely notice that it is there.  I've run 2 Iron Butt Rallies and an LDX Rally on them.

    Would you mind taking a photograph of it please? I’m keen to see how it compares.



    Unfortunately, I'm stuck in a hotel in Dallas with Fauci's Murder Virus.  Let me look through my photos to see if I have a suitable photo.

    Looking for others.

    Note that I'm double-dark with a rear Bridgestone BT46 on the front. Mounted forward.  The front does require you to fab up some spacers to raise the fender to clear.

    EDIT:  Note that I have a 3rd party silencer.  This did, unfortunately, require a pad to be installed to keep the center stand from coming up too high and rubbing the tire.  The stock silencer does not require it.  It really is plug and play.

    Sorry to hear about your Covid. I was there myself (as was the rest of my family) just a few weeks ago 🙁

     Red Merle, sorry I haven't got back to you earlier. Away on holidays with the wife. tdragger has answered for me, a 205/50ZR17. Straight on, the only difference is I'm running 32PSI in the rear. Mine is a Hancook, not a run flat, so I have a bit more flex in the sidewalls. I tried the 40PSI and found it to harsh a ride. And unlike tdragger I'm not riding in any IBA sanctioned rallies requiring the TPMS system to be functioning.  Red warning light is always on, I just covered it with a piece of tape. Old school I know, but I've been riding long before TPMS's were invented. As I said, sorry for the lateness. Cheers.  :028: :028:

    Thanks for coming back as well anyway!
    All my measurements suggested 205/50 R17, but there’s so much to sort out with the handling of the bike I’ve put a standard tyre in for the moment while I work through everything (it’s one less variation to alliw for from standard).
    The leading link forks are now working well and there’s a new sidecar specific rear shock being built now 👍
    I’ll look at the rear tyre again when the rest is sorted.
