I have ME880s, but in the stock size, which IMO are already two big, especially the rear. My Harley Road King has a 130/90-16 rear tire, but the outside diameter is no bigger than the 150/90-15 on the Vulcan, and it is noticeably narrower. The stock rear tire on my 1985 Goldwing is the same as the Vulcan 750, 150/90-15, but the GW is way bigger. The 150/90-15 just looks out of proportion compared to the size of the Vulcan. I think the 130/90-16 would look much nicer. To me, the sidewall on the Vulcan's rear tire just looks too wide, like something that goes on a dragster. One of the things I loved about '70s bikes were the narrower tires and larger diameter rims, especially the rear. I also like the look of the Mean Streak, with it's 17" diameter rear rim and narrow sidewall. To bad it has to be so slow. Kawasaki should have put an inline four in it.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
