I'll defer to anyone with specific experience, but--I'd expect NONE, if you have the clearance.

Might have to shim the exhaust outboard a washer or two, but I imagine the wider skin will work o.k., except your rear tire might be hungrier to eat your license plate (not that it wasn't before!).

I went a size wider with my KLR250; exhaust shimmed, and--no problems.

Looking for rear tire supply in rapid city sturgis area

Hi folks

Down doing some dual sport in the black hills but my Heidenau K60 is wearing out faster than anticipated and still have to do the 1500 k home. Anyone in the rapid city sturgis spearfish area that may carry a Mefo or Heidenau K60 tire 130 80 17?
