Hello Everone I am saving up for my own M19R right now. I currenty have Tl1000s The bike I owned before that was a sv650 I am getting tired of the sport bikes and I love the way the M109 looks. I jsut wanted to say hi and also what is the biggest size front and rear tire you can run on the stock rims??

On the rear according to tire manufactures the biggest is a 260mm. There are guys on here that run a metzler 280 on the stock rim. It can be done but wouldn't recommend it. As far as the front goes most commonly ive seen a 160 up front but because it is a back tire it has to be mounted backwards. There are some guys running a 170 up front not sure what mods are required if any.
p.s
buy the 9 you won't regret it

The 170 up front is on a 17" rim, not a stock rim.

Thanks for the answer.... I'd looked at the M109R's in passing in bike shops, but last weekend, I was on a ride and at one of the stops, I caught a glimpse of a highly customized one across the parking lot, and had to go see.... right then and there I knew the 9 would be my next bike!

You guys know if there will be many changes to the 2011 model (good or bad)? Ie. should I wait for the 2011 or go ahead with the 2008/2009 models I've found?? :dontknow:

The op is looking for info on tires... not model year differences.
Might wanna consider starting your own thread as not to hi-jack this one any longer. Just sayin.....
