Yep, just want it to fit the rim properly. I'm putting street oriented dual sport tires on this thing. They didn't have a 4.60x18; I'm glad the 120 is the same thing

Tire size

Will a 120/80 size tire work properly with the stock XRL rear rim? I know, dumb question, just want to make sure before I click on the button.

Back in the game

Well, I picked up a new to me '09 model today. It's stock. Can't get a picture to post correctly but it's a clean bike. Plan on outfitting it for some street/forest road type ADV rides.

What does the NX 2nd and 5th gear get you, are they better for street (more speed)? Will a stock motor pull those gears adequately or do you need the porting, etc.?
