    A 140 is the best you can put on , a 150 metzler will fit but you only gain 3/8 of a inch & you are real close to the belt , not worth it IMO .

    A D402 is a 140 tire you can use any brand 140x16 tire on the rear , I know some riders that like the Avon brand & the Metzler brand I stick with Dunlops they have treated me well . Be sure to check the rear wheel bearing every time you have the rear wheel removed I had a rear wheel bearing go out around 16,000 miles .
