Hopefully picking up my new scrambler this coming week weather permitting. I want to change the tires to a set of the TKC80's. Does anyone have a recommendation on the tire size I should run and does anyone by change have a pic of them on and otherwise relatively stock src950? Only pics I could find on Google are completely custom bikes. Thanks for the help and I'm stoked about my first post

What are you wanting - the standard sizes?
100/90-19 M/C 57H (front)
140/80 R17 M/C 69H (rear)
Welcome, by the way.......

Pass......can’t see the attraction of giant balloon tyres, meself.

Ummmm, the TKC80's actually look lower profile than the stock tires if one uses the Hageman bike vs what we have already.
If that's what you call "giant balloon tires", the OEM rubber must be hideous. :grin2:

To answer the original post question, I would stick with the OEM tire sizes. There's no room (or need, really) to go bigger. The front fender's very close and the tall knobs are going to "grow" and possibly contact it there and the swingarm out back. Even f the tire stays out of the metal, mud or heavy dirt won't.

Side by Side

Nice seein' the side by side comparison of the two bikes, thanks @eddie. Think you're right about the tire profile...dang, the stock SCR looks like an old dt250 that ate four burgers and drank eight beers every day for the last forty-three years :)

Do they?..... maybe I should have put “giant knobbly tyres”? Same ratio width to height as OEM tho.

Sticking with the OEM tyre size was sort of the point of my originally posting those sizes tho.

Thanks for the replies guys. Definitely not trying to achieve the giant balloon look although the honda 3 wheeler does share part of my heart along with the 70s Yamaha enduros.
@eddie, exactly the info I was looking for, thanks man. Looks like I'll stick with the oem tire size

4 burgers and 8 beers later

Ha ha...That explains why I feel so at home on the new SCR. We have both been thru the same changes over the last 43 years.

Fairway Fun

Imagine the fun you could have if you snuck out onto a golf coarse with a set of those bad boys on your SCR. Not that I've ever snuck onto a golf coarse.....while the sprinklers were running.....

Thanks guys. Here's a couple new pics. Also added the license plate relocate bracket
Like the tires!
The tag relocation, not so much.
If the bike falls on the left side, it's toast.
If you happen to be between the bike and the ground, think sliced toast.
=O
I hit crumbly asphalt on a newly paved corner one morning. My boot came off the peg as the bike went down.
My foot was swept rearward and a relatively blunt axle end/nut grabbed my boot.
The bike then dragged me with it down the road a few yards. Thank goodness for heavy leather!
