Ive just had a bridgestone ED660 fitted in a 120x90x18 size and it looks a bit on the narrow side. The tyre that came on the bike from new was a "mitchelin comp enduro" and was a 130x90x18 size.
Should I have opted for a 140 Bridgestone?
What are the ups and downs of going wider or narrower?
Taffy.- I'd be interested to know what tyre you are running as your bike must have come with the same tyre as mine.
the 120x90x18 ED660 is the bridgestone recommended fitment for a WR400
Thanks in advance
'00 WR (uk spec) blah blah

i'm running a michelin 130/80 x 18. it was onspecial offer from Off Road Only 'ORO' for just £35. it's a winter tyre. good value too.
my friend supplies me with Maxxis tyres at trade price & i'm not too happy with the front but the 120 rears are very good.
all the enduro boys (UK) are running 130's if that's any help.

You don't really notice it until you run a 100 or 110 and the the bike just won't come upright after corners!
