Peoples, need to confirm what size rear tire to get for a 1998 California.
The manual calls for 140/80-17 69V. It needs to be a special tire for Guzzi to fit with this size. Some rub the swing arm in this size. Indeed the Pirelli MT-80 that is on there has a rub mark on it from at least occasional contact.
A quick web search shows some web sites suggest a 130/90-17.
Edited here to remote data Lowryter and Rocker59 identified as incorrect, no need to have more incorrect data floating around the internet so deleted it. Thanks guys appreciate the heads up.
Any thoughts on this? (disclaimer - not a tire expert, probably doing the math wrong, just want the right tire. :))
