Metzeler Motorcycle Tire has added an all-new Stage 2 upgrade option 120/70B21 for newer model Harley-Davidson FL series bikes as replacements for the stock-sized ME880 tires suggested.
These new options – based on the popular Metzeler ME880 tire – fill the fenders of nine Harley-davidson models, among them the Road King, Electra Glide Classic, Ultra Classic, Street and Road Glides.
The stock front fender must be replaced with an aftermarket fender for compatibility. “Metzeler’s heritage includes offering its consumers the best performing – and best looking tire available for their rides,” said Chris Wall, Director of Marketing for Metzeler Tire. “The Stage 2 mod is easy to fit, only requires a few modifications and the improvement in ride and look is phenomenal.”
The new Metzeler Stage 2 upgrade will require modification or replacement of your motorcycle wheels, fenders, wheel spacers, and the purchase of other small products to achieve the look and ride desired.
Remember that physical dimensions of tires are critical. Adequate clearance of fenders, swing arm, etc. must be maintained. Increasing tire size may require an increase in rim width. Rotate the wheel and inspect closely for sufficient clearance prior to road operation. Metzeler demands that a minimum of 1/4 of a inch is the minimum side of tire to fender, fork, or bike clearance be maintained. A minimum of 1/2-inch clearance must be maintained tire diameter to the underside of the fender and or swingarm. Metzeler Motorcycle Tire.
