I've got a 2002 VT750DC that I'm going to be replacing tires on and was looking at going from the stock 110/80-19 front - 160/80-15 rear to a Metzler 110/19-19 front 170/80-15 rear.

Anyone else running something similar? I spoke with a rep a Metzler who said that 'might' work, but they have only tested on the 04-05 models so any additional feedback would be helpful.

I have an '03 Spirit 750 and just changes tires to Metzlers.

Front is now the 110/90/19 and the rear is a 200/70/15. I know a few people with Spirit 750's running the same setup w/o any problems.

Some have had to shim out the brake stay rod w/ an addition washer.

The only problem I have ever heard of with the Metzler 110/19-19 front and 170/80-15 rear that you are looking at is the front tire may rub on the under fender brace and you may have to cut the center of the brace out. I had to cut the brace on my front fender adn haven't had a problem.
