Check into the shadow section. These guys have tried a bunch of them and know what fits and even have a few hints on what works best.

Peace and good luck.

try this and then you will know how much room you have:

http://mcdarksiders.forumotion.com/general-motorcycle-tech-information-f14/how-to-check-to-see-the-maximum-tire-size-to-fit-your-bike-t3153.htm

but most bikes will work with the 165R15 , It's a VW tire but it will work on most 15" rims.
good luck.

If I had to guess, I would say yes. Hope you find your answer, I know that my options were pretty obvious for my F. There are not many tires that will fit there being low profile. I have no issues to speak of at all with the tire at all. Hope to ride tomorrow.

Your M/C tire size is the same as the Ventures and I'm running a Kumho PowerStar 758 in 165/80R15 on mine. Just as Horseman8m said, that is an old VW bug tire size.
The Kumho does great for me. Same height as the M/C tire, great grip and I can't tell that it handles any differently. And the Venture probably weighs a few hundred pounds more than your bike.. especially with me on it. What a Face

Hey pop,
I see that you are running a 165/80R-15, the same size I was thinking of for my Max; what brand are you running for the front? How does it handle??
