    Ok,I'm dumb when it comes to tire sizes,so forgive the dumb question.I have the the Mu85B16 on the rear of my RK.That's what is called for.When I search that tire I only find a couple with that size.What is the metric conversion.I'd like to shop around a little,possibly go with a 1-size wider tire.Thanks!

    Speaking about tires, when are there going to be radial tires available for Harley's. Yeah I know about all the problems way back in the '80s regarding "tall" 80 & 90 series tires, but I was finally able to find 80 series tires for my '93 Kat and they were a lot better than the bias ply tires originally fitted (used stock size 120/80VRx17 and 140/80VRx17 Dunlop D205's).

    I was looking in catalogs and magazines and still do not see radials listed in HD sizes for 19" Front and 16" Rear wheels. Just curious, considering all the new technology going into high performance tires :dknow
