84' flhtc with enclosed chain...

Post  Biggie on Mon Aug 01, 2011 12:01 am

Did a search and found nothing. I have a 84' Eglide with an enclosed chain drive. Tire size 130/90/16 on front and rear. Anyone have a clue where to find a CT that would fit? searched online and cant seem to find a CT that size. Any help would be greatly appriciated. If need be i can eliminate the enclosed chain drive and ride it open chain. banghd

That's the only way you'll get a tire in there. I tried to find what would work in my Heritage and the ONLY 16" I can find is a 175 - my stocker was a 150.
I think you're outta luck with a 130.

Wow....130 on the rear! That's going to be impossible to find a car tire that narrow. I don't know what to say....sorry!

Im assuming its a 130/90/16. Is that not what a mt90b16 is? I have the HD dunlops 402 on both rims, they suck.

Mine was an M90 something or other, and a 150, so just measure:
1.) the width of the tire in mm -- use a straightedge and a buddy
2.) the closest point from the side of the tire to anything on the bike - chain, fender, struts, old bubblegum.
3.) figure the distance in mm and multiply by 2 and subtract 2mm.
This is how wide a tire you can run. The 2mm subtracted is the absolute minimum clearance you want.
There is, of course, the issue of our narrow rims making the sidewalls pull in a bit, giving you more clearance,
but as yet, there are no charts for this.
I'm betting you can get a 175 in there.
