    No I do not want to start another tire debate but I need a little help. I just bought a 2015 Rocket Tour model. It came with a CT. but I want to install a MC tire, again no debate. I thought it took a metzler 240/50/16. On amazon it says it will not fit my bike. What size tire was OEM on this bike?

    180 not 240, the 240 is only for the non-touring bikes.

    Touring and Tourer are two different bikes, which do you have?

    180 it is. Avon Cobra last twice as long as Metzzler, same grip as far as I can tell.

    Yes, pretty universally despised by owners, short life, fronts start cupping within 1000 miles

    The avon cobra on one site said does not fit. Is that incorrect.
