larger rear tire for '86 vfr750 interceptor?
happy new year!! last month, i got my first bike. got a good deal on a gently used 1986 vfr150f interceptor, and i'm having a great time riding it here in sunny san diego. getting tired of looking at that weenie rear tire, though. i read that they came originally with a 130. mine has a dunlopj 140/75/18. a few weeks ago, i read an another forum, but can't seem to find it, that upto a 160/60/18 can be safely used, but no more due to the swing arm and chain guard restrictions. this looks a bit close to me. i was wondering if anyone has any input or firsthand knowledge they'd be willing to share. i'd really appreciate the enlightenment. thanks, guys, and enjoy the holidays.
