If I should decide to try the full bores, should I go m-40 radial on the rear and m-41 on the front (only have 90/90-21 in bias).

I thought you weren't supposed to mix radial and bias, yet it appears that several Triumph models do.
It's a common misconception that you can't mix radial and cross ply. You can. BUT you can only do it by having the radial on the rear.
