First....introduce yerself in the newebie section....ahem....

Then tell us where you are, so locals can help....

If you LOOK/SEARCH and download the Vulcan manual, you'll have all the info you need in there....

....and to answer your question, yes....you can...some are running a 16" wheel, and some went to the darkside on the tire....


....by the way....I like yer neck of the woods....been thru there yrs ago....a few guys by you in the hills....

Where in Texas are you from? I frequented Bandera, Del Rio, San Antonio and all over the Hill country when we were full time RV'ers.

Isn't the stock tire a 150/90 15?

Who has a 16" wheel that bolts right up?

And.....can this get moved to the Wheel/Tire section?

Most places will say they don't fit on the website but they do. I can save you some hurtin if you decide to mount them yourself. Let me or us know. I love these tires!

Who said he was a Texan ???....

And Vnny from Greece put a 16 on his...also, arent the larger Kawis 16" now ?...only need to make the driveshaft and housing work, which has been done....here, by a forum member from Cali....
Im actually looking at a used wideglide front end with a 16" wheel and tire right now....almost ANYTHING can be adapted to work...all depends on ability, planning and funds...else we'd all still be riding these :
