    Jan 10, 2018, 15:30:23
  • Hurco550: yes. two of them jussy
    Jan 10, 2018, 15:31:02
  • JustinLonghorn: I have one in my shop. One in various locations and one that I need to go purchase. Ha
    Jan 10, 2018, 15:33:04
  • irk miller: I have too many projects.  I need to be saved.
    Jan 10, 2018, 15:34:28
  • The Jimbonaut: I'm pulling the seat off Rhonda (the CB750) and the side bags - always felt the leather was a bit too orange and not brown enough.  Perfect.  Stitching those bags once was once too often
    Jan 10, 2018, 15:38:45
  • The Jimbonaut: And i'd like to try a fatter wheel on the back - any idea how big I can go with the stock rim?
    Jan 10, 2018, 15:40:28
  • Hurco550: Not sure on clearance on a dohc 750. Im sure there have been many a knock down- drag out argument on plenty of forums on the subject that you can find with a google search
    Jan 10, 2018, 15:51:49
  • The Jimbonaut: I'll do that - minds bigger than mine will no doubt have all kinds of things to say on the subject
    Jan 10, 2018, 15:54:15
  • Hurco550: i garuntee that certain death has been said to acompany a larger rear tire on at least one of the forums
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:09:00
  • Maritime: LOL. Jim I go to Avon Tyres site and they have a guide for max tire size safe on a given rim width. Then if you still want bigger a wider rim needs to be laced to the hub but there is a limit for clearance too so your factory hoop might be able to handle the max safe size and give you the biggest tire that will clear everything
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:11:04
  • Hurco550: yeah i was more unsure of the clearance for the swingarm more than the rim
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:12:06
  • Maritime: I was able to safely put the max size tire on my old CM400 and it jsut cleared the chain and swinger and helped the bike looks and handling too
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:12:26
  • Maritime: At the time I was able to go to the dealer with swing arm in hand and check the tire size in it for clearnance as the bike was in pieces, found a set of Avon road riders that fit. big improvement over the factory sized dunlops that came on the bike
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:14:13
  • The Jimbonaut: Good call gents, will have scope around and see what gives.  There's plenty of room inside the swingarm so I guess it comes down to how big the rim can handle
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:17:01
  • The Jimbonaut: how big the rim can handle sounds awful
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:17:21
  • Hurco550: haha
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:18:51
  • Maritime: Ha!
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:35:39
  • Maritime: just tried to go grab the chart from Avon but the link is dead to it.
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:35:57
  • Maritime: Here's one [link]
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:38:51
  • Maritime: Looks like there is all sizes that are safe and the orange is a "Best Fit" size
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:42:37
  • Maritime: for each given rim width
    Jan 10, 2018, 16:42:52
