I have, so far, failed to get it out for cleaning for the same reason. I'm thinking I'll have to take off the tank and OE air filter to get access inside to push it out.

BTW, I've never had the stalling issue even though I've ridden in dust.

Rear tire

Good day fellas,

I have asked this in other threads without any luck with a response, so I will ask here and see what yee say:

Has anyone changed out the 17" rear on their 800xc with an 18"? Curious if it is possible without much drama?

Thanks

If you are using "drama" as a euphemism for money, I would say NO. send a PM to Woodys Wheel Works for a drama quote and get back to us.

Can't see the point personally as you can get almost any type of tyre in 17" nowadays anyway.

And if you come back and say ; "oh, but you can't get pukka MX tyres in 17". Well, the Tiger's not a motocrosser (never will be) and its weight, power and torque will rip an MX tyre apart in pretty quick time IMO.

So, as I said, I can't see the point.

Fair enough.

My thinking was simply to have two setups, one with an 18/21 for dualsport rides with a tkc type tire, and another with 17/17 for rides I know will only have pavement. I know lots of guys with road bikes and only a couple with dual sport/adv bikes. Also the 17's would work well for commuting.

I was more curious if anyone had done it and if there were any significant modifications needed to make it work.

If you want two set-ups why not get a roadie (tubeless) rear and another 21 front for your road tyres. That's what I did years ago on an R100GS. Just got a second set of wheels from a breakers for different tyres. It's just that once you start altering the wheel diameters you also alter the geometry of the steering. Once you've got two sets of wheels, it takes 1/2 hour to swap the wheels for each type of ride but everything remains standard.

18 inch rear will make first gear even taller, wouldn't it? Not good for offroad...

you get a smaller sidewall tire. the overall diameter shouldnt change. is that what you mean? sprockets would be switched over (i assume). it shouldn't change anything.

It doesn't work out that way. The tire you'd run would be a 140/80-18, which has a relatively tall sidewall. I did the math at one point, and the tire actually is a fair amount taller than a 150/70-17.

You could adjust the gearing by using a larger rear sprocket (or smaller front one). But assuming it's an ABS bike, the speedo and associated systems that run off the rear ABS sensor would be off.

It would be nice to be able to do it as there's a much better selection of dual-sport tires available in 140/80-18, and still plenty of street tires. But Blacktiger's right, the Tiger's not a motocross bike or even an enduro racer, so the available selection of 150/70-17 DS tires is probably good enough.

That's why I said shouldn't, change the overall diameter. Obviously it doesn't have to work that way, hell some guys put car tires on their bikes. If the correct tire sizes don't exist I wouldn't do it. Is there enough clearance to increase the overall size? I would make sure you have enough clearance at the swing arm and during full rear suspension compression. It may make it handle strange too...

Good luck.

I think the speedo etc. comes from the front abs sensor.

Nope, rear. Put the bike on the center stand sometime, put it in first gear, and watch the speedo.
