I got that info off my tires. What I really want to know is what is the size ie, 130/90/16, 140/90/16. The numbers that you posted are Dunlop/Harley number only. They mean nothing to anyone else. Thanks for the reply.
I am pretty sure the front is a 130/90/16. I think for 06 FLTRI, the rear is a 140/90/16 but not 100% sure. I can't believe that the service manual doesn't list a size and if you call a dealer all they tell you is DUNLOP. I have never had a set of Dunlop tires on a bike that were worth squat. These are no different. You feel every groove or imperfection in the surface and it can be a little shakey at certain speeds. Waiting on Metzeler for a reply.
It did give the tire widths.
Tire size you refernced is in "mm"
so you are correct, you ave a 130/90/16 on the front and a 140/85/16 on the rear.
Note you have a 90 profile in your above post but it is a 85 profile.
ah I see you rproblem. I had the same problem when I changed my tires over to metzelers. I just did a search to help you and found this on the ama web site. so it looks like you have, I would double check the actual numbers on your tires.
I picked up a Metezler"why upgrade" pamphlet at a dealer. SHow's standard as 130/90-16 front and 140/90-16 stock as rear. This was for 04 which I think has not changed. I don't think you can go larger on the front, but I have heard rumors (yes they are crap but if someone has done it let us know) that you can do to 150/80-16. I am interested in doing this gor FLHXI
Page 15 ME880 Rear Tire (black wall Bias);
140/90B-16 77H 5.74 max width mm 26.18 dia. mm
150/80-16 71H 6.02 max width mm 25.98 dia. mm
White Walls have different numbers but same size
140/90-B16 77H & 150/80-B16 71H
The stock tire on touring bikes in 04 went from 130 to 140 (142??) in the back as stock.
no problem. when I bought my tires I was pulling my hair out with this conversion thing. even after I ordered the tires up until I put them on I still was uncertain about his mumbo jumbo conversion stuff.
I am sure the only testing they are doing is to see how fat you can go.
If you want stock width, use the 140/90B-16 77H. If you want to go wider, look at you bike. The 150 is only 1/8" wider on each side. If you have room between the tire and the belt guard for the additional width go for the 150/80-16 71H if that’s what you want.
There really is no mystery here. If the rim accepts the Dunlap tire, it will take the Metzler.
