I think a 120/90 is too big and a 110/80 is too small. The bike should have either a 120/80 or a 110/90. I prefer the 110/90.

My 773 dunlop 110 is almost identical to my 404 120 . Carcass on the Dunlop is slightly wider while knob width on Stone is barely bigger. Tire height is much taller on the 120/90.

You'll never know unless you try. I prefer the 120/90 for offroad because of the bigger sidewall. Moto only i'd run a smaller tire.

110/80/19 is a 250f tire size and you probably won't get the drive/traction that you'll want. 120/80/19 and 110/90/19 are the correct sizes for a 450f.

I prefer the 110/90 over the 120. Makes the bike feel a little more nimble to me.

X2, the 110/90 made quite a noticeable difference to me, the bike seems more agile and lighter handling The 120 feels like a tractor tire back there.
