Thanks for the replies. Lots of great suggestions, and interesting discussion ref tire size. I will be going for the Spitfire windshield, but still not 100% on tires. The Kenda 761s also seem like pretty good tires but their largest rear tire size (120/80) is a little smaller than the stock one (I was hoping to go bigger...) The other problem is that they say it is meant for a 3 inch wide rim. With the rear rim size of the XR650L only 2.15 inches, I wasn't sure if that tire was also too wide. Is anyone riding Kenda 761s on their XR650L? If so, please jump in on the discussion...I'd like to see some pics of the 761s on a bike to see if it looks like a good fit.
Long and short of it...still struggling with trying to find a reasonably priced set of rubber for my bike...
Any good online stores in Canada for tires? All the places in the US seem to charge a fortune for shipping to Canada...
Thanks again to everyone for the assistance.
I ahve a 140/80-18 on my L, no rubbing but I do have to remove the disc guard to get the tire off.
Try www.americanmototire.com. The best prices I've found, don't know about shipping to Canada.
