Better off to delete one of the posts to get an answer.
You've asked the same question twice.

You can go to a 140 rear tire without any mods on a 2003. Any fatter and you need a wider rim and have to shim the belt out or put on a 2004 and up narrow belt.

Here is the thread on getting the 150 to fit. I run the MU85 on my 2000. It's not a 150 but it's bigger than the stock 130 and fit with no problems.

When I had my 03, I ran a MU/140 rear tire and just cut the inner flap off of the rear belt guard..

Geezer,
So my 06 would run a 150 without mods? I'm at the point of new rear tire, and want the widest I can without cutting stuff..
