Tryna order a rear tire for the '96 1500, and EVERY friggin place I look at says the tire size that is ON IT, will not fit.....WTF?!?!? I even went back and looked at the tag(and the receipt) from the new tire I put on it last(in 2019) to verify the size, 160/80B-16, 80, H, and the suppliers ALL show that tire will not fit on my 1500. I'm at werk...the bike is at home, so I can't physically look to see, but I KNOW what size tire I put on it last time...I have photographic evidence!!

Just ordered one anyway, same size, same part # as the one that's on it....and the one before that too. Paid $218 for the last one(2019), new one is $284!!! Ouch! At least these Dunlop E4s give me great mileage!

Ya...but not like before with the 1100!!
Went out yesterday and got the wheel/tire off the bike, and tire dis-mounted. Got a tire on the way, and just ordered a new rear rotor....the OE one is gettin a lil funky...not flat anywhere on the pad surface. I already have new pads for the rear, but don't make sense to install them on a cupped rotor. Should have everything here, and put back together next weekend, and hopefully the weather will cool down enough to start riding again. Just been to dang hot...
