Best motard wheel size for an "L"

9 posts in this topic

I see different sizes being used ranging from 4.25 to 5.00.

I am looking at a 17x3.50/120 for the front and would like to run a 150 or 160 on the rear.

Anyone have any experience with a rear setup?

Don't, the 17" wheel will give you the wrong speed and odometer readings, by 11% I think. You will indicate faster speed and roll up miles quicker.

Trailtech is the way to go, you can configure it for the 17" tires. Or better yet, Service Honda has a new speedo for $150, looks nice.

3.50 for front, 4.25 for rear w/ a 160 no problem...Trailtech cures the speedo issue...

Anyone got some shots (pics) of their trailtech setups on XR650Ls??? I have the stock on there now, but it reads WAY too fast and miles are building up much quicker.
