    I have a 2005 XL1200C. My current Front tire is a 80/90-21. My question is will a 90/90-21 fit or do i need to stay with the 80/90-21? Any response would be greatly appreciated.

    Very probable. That 10mm of width (5mm per side - less than a 1/4") will probably not have an interference problem. But check!

    Look at the front tire and see where there is the LEAST clearance all the way around the tire (fenders, forks, etc.). I would bet there is plenty of clearance, and so an extra 1/4" on each side (actually less) will not make any difference.

    Cheers,

    TQ
