DOES THIS SIZE TIRE EXIST???
Has anyone used/found/or heard of this size tire? I want to run this tire on my '00 XL Custom, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Help is greatly appreciated.

140/80/16

Because 130/90/16 is the stock size for my '00 XL Custom. Going a little wider (140) will be easier to achieve with the shorter tire. It is possible to get the 140/90/16 under there, but you have to be careful with the bolts and wires inside the fender. Using a shorter tire (even that little bit) makes it an easier change.
If I have to...I will use a 140/90/16, but for now...searching for a 140/80/16. Thanks.

The difference would be less than a half inch in height, can't see how it makes that much difference. For that matter stick with the 130.

I used the 140/90b/16 on my bike and it looks great I didn't see any issues with wiring or bolts under fender as you stated.
