Exhaust and tires

I have a 2008 vrscawa I am going to put new Metzler tires on it soon can I go with larger tires on the stock rims the rear is 240/40r x18 and the front is 120/70r 19:banghead:
Drilled exhaust: Just delivered 2008 V Rod to have power commander installed ,with the exhaust drilled will the power commander need more work if I drill holes a little larger after I get her home, ALSO: bike mech. said not to take out inner baffles that without back pressure even with the Pow.Com. that she will be to loud and may not run right, Any feed back please, he will work on bike on thurs.10th. ALSO: I have been running a Drag Spec. air filter and drilled pipes for two weeks without Power Commander will this hurt the motor? Thank you

Hey i ran my double barrels with the baffles modded or unwrapped should i say, without a tuner for prolly a year and my bike was fine but when i put on the PC3, i took the whole damn baffle out and i lost about 10 horses but the sound is amazing and so much deeper like it should be, now to answer your ? is it good for the motor... only a dyno can answer that truely, the air and fuel ratio is key here...just my 2 cents

I believe you can put a Metz 260 on the vrod 240 stock rim. I think there is a more detailed explanation of this (rim width measurements) on v-mod in the rear tire section.

Hope this helps, and let me know if you put a 260 on it and how it handles.

260 Metz 250 Avon or anything else is a direct replacement on the stock 240 bikes.
Since you purchased a fueler and have an AW, you should have done the full DIY V-mod to your exhaust. It would have taken abou the same amount of time as drilling all those holes.

I was told by the bike mech ,that it would not run as well with the gutting of the inner baffle (lack of back pressure)and the sound would be to loud.
