Im picking up some of the Kenda Trakmaster II next week and I was sondering if anybody has fit the 120/100's on a WR. I've seen the 110/100's on the bike but the tire looks too small. Also, are there any other recommendations for D.O.T. approved tires?
Yes, but it will be taller, so your gearing will change. The first number is width in mm, the second number is the aspect ratio in percentage. In this case, its 100% of the width. Original WR is 110/100, so its 110mm wide, and 110mm sidewall or 100% of the width. So your new tire will fit and it will be taller. Technically, if you wanted the tire to be about the same heigth with a 120mm width, you'd use a 120/90-18. But tire makers sizes vary. I had an IRC 130/80-18 on my 426, plenty of room to grow!

120's fit great! With the exception of the Tera Flex I currently have mounted (140) I always run a 120 on my WR.
Ditto 140/80-18 TeraFlex is as large as you can go!
