Thanks - its a bot confusing over there. Not sure if there used to be a lot more options, or if a 120/90/10 will work. Looks like Bridgestone Molas may be the only choice now just going by the exact 4.00x10 specs?

4 x 10 is the old way of of inches . Most tire are metric . So yep I think 120/ 90 / 10 will work but the tec tips say 110/90 /10 Do not reuse the vavle stems get the changed too. More then once someone over the years on scooter hasn't and down the road you go. Your bikes in the ditch but your still going down the road without it. Ask for ones that are in aren't straight . It's hard to fill the rear tire with out ones that come up and go sidewise . Rear one should face away from Muffler. You ll have to change the muffler pipe gasket at the same time the rear tires done. They burn out fast and without it it's noisy .
If your doing the tires yourself also consider Replacing the honda flat blade 40 amp fuse that down by the battery. Maybe hidden under the bodywork. The reason is you cant replace it by the road side . No one has them anymore. Most people just buy an 4 bucks inline fuse . They ether twist apart and you pop in a new 40 amp fuse. . Disconnect the battery. Cut the wires and solder it in. Also you could just use crimp connectors to but they are prone to breakage over time. Use heat shrink instead of electrical tape. Tape comes apart over time.

Parting words are cheap tires tend to get 2000 miles on rear or so. Brand name tend to get 3500 to 4600 rear. 8000 miles front give or take .
