You'll have to give us a bit more information. What year/model bike are you trying to fit it to?

Admin, it seems pretty clear that if he's posting it on the 1800 subforum, that he's talking about an 1800, which limits it to 2001-2010.

Anyway, I do know of people who have done that size...depending on the geometry of the tire, you may run into a problem with the side of the tire rubbing the swingarm---it's rare, but it does happen. The 2005 doesn't have a stereo amp above the rear tire in the fender, so you should be fine height-wise, width will be what you need to check for when you mount it.
