I will admit any big tire is perfect. Whether it be a 260 or 280. To each their own but just stating the facts. Go for whichever.

I went 280 purely so I can say its a 280 lol.. I love it. Handles great looks great. Though the 260 looks about the same I will probably stick with a 280 because I am so pleased with it.

The original poster asked what was the biggest you could fit on the stock rim and the answer is the 280
Here is my 280...
thats a great point,,,, the 260 VS 280 is kinda of a draw because the rim doesnt allow the 280 to pop out like it would on a wider rim. BUT you can say you have a 280 which is cool in and of itself paul

In Holland & Germany the max width you can put on the stockwheel and still have the official approval/certificate from Pirelli (=Metzeler) is their 260 Metzeler Marathon tire.

I went for the Metzeler 300 but had to widen the swingarm and running a 10,5" rearwheel.

hi

can you tell me where I can buy the license plate holder please, and does it fit the VRSCF Muscle? Rozoma's website does not appear to offer this part and I cannot find anywhere?

I live in south Korea OEM parts are not easy to get here so any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

cheers

Alan
