What I really meant to ask is, will a 4.60 tire work on a stock DR rim?

I currently run a 130/90/17 or 80...either way it's 130 wide. I found a tire I'd like to try that is 4.60 and is smaller in...

Tire ?

Will either a 4.60-17 or 5.10-17 tire fit (work) on a DR rear wheel? I know the 4.60 is slightly narrower than stock and the 5.10 is wider than stock.

Yep, I remember looking at the 2010 and 2011 (I bought new in 2011) and the specs were the same. I don't think they know the difference between damper and cartridge forks.
