GL1200 rear tire

Post by Possum51 » Thu Oct 25, 2012 5:32 pm

I now have a 150/90-15 on the rear, could I run a 140/90-15 without causing any problems or would that be too small for the bikes weight?

I havent but my son in law does all the time on his 84 interstate. Just check the load rating of one tire vs the other. Width and height there really isnt much difference.
