Anyone know if a 130 90/16 would be ok to put on the rear of a 1983 GL1100?

as long as the speed and weight ratings are acceptable it should be fine. any reason for not using stock size 140/90/16?

Well the bike shop around the corner has the 130 90/16 left over for $100.00 off retail.

there should be no problem as long as the speed and weight ratings are equivalent to stock. like they say, you get what you pay for.

Might be a good idea to check the manufactured date on the tire. Not good if its been in the warehouse too long.

the rear wheel for 80/81 is 17", for the 82/83 is 16". microfiche shows 2 different part numbers for the rotors so my first guess would be no.

The rotors put together look the same I think they just changed the part number my 82 has a lot of clearance so the 17 will fit in 82 they changed the swing arm so I know the tire will fit but will the rim go on the final drive with the same clearance for the caliper to bolt on?

might just be easier to swap rotors instead of guessing. as far as i know the only difference is one is 16 the other 17 but i might be wrong
