Post  ranger351w on Thu Jul 07, 2011 2:10 pm

I am planning on going dark side soon on the 2011 King.
It looks like th 195x60 16 will work? Any info appreciated.

Thanks

Hey Mike,

For specific answers, don't forget we have a HD section. 2011........Hmmmm you should have more room between the tire and the belt than with a 2000 RK like my father in law. He cannot do a CT because the belt is sooooo close to the tire.

Someone will come along soon and help you with good data. I ride a VTX, so I would only be guessing and we don't operate that way!


Congrats and welcome sir......................bobby

If you have a 190, a 195 CT will fit. But you could do the measurements to see if you can run wider, but it's not necessary or advised to - the narrower tires will get the same mileage as seen on the mileage charts, and you'll probably have less "crossover effect" of countersteer.

2011 RK Tire

Post  ranger351w on Tue Jul 12, 2011 5:45 am

IT RUNS A 180/65/16 stock

Seems like that is hard to find . I have about an inch clearence I believe from stock tire to the belt and seem to have plenty of room for diamiter.
I just thought someone would know off hand. 09,10&11 are all the same I believe and run a 5' wide rim

Thank you

2011 Road King

I found areference to a guy that put a Dunlop SP5000 in 195-60-16 on an 09 Road King. You've probably got lots of tires avaialble in the US in that size.

Thanks for the help. I now have a Hankook 195/60 16 h426 on the RK with 3 oz of dyna beads with no static balance done and they work great.
I have around 300 miles on and am running 31 psi and love it.
