    Hey guys. What TKC tire size should I put on my new F800GS when it shows up next week? 130/80 - 17 & 90/90 - 21? Or something else?

    Thanks!

    Definitely go OEM 150/70-17 if you can. There is big discussion here! I think the consensus is that 140 is the smallest you want to go.

    There is just as much rubber in a 140/80-17 as there is in a 150/70-17. The f'ing manufacturer's are just ripping us off becasue they know we have have end bikes. I won't buy another TKC80 or Karoo for that reason alone.
