No, you probably don’t want to put bigger tires on your motorcycle. They will probably make it handle worse, not better. To some people, bigger tires may look better, but to those in the know, they make the bike look like the owner doesn’t know anything about motorcycle suspension and steering.

Where to find


Harbor Frieght sells wheel barrel tires that can be made to fit and they're cheap. You may have to put bushings in the new tires as they may be a little bigger (depending on the tire you buy) than the axle on the Kett car. Otherwise I'd say try the manufacturer.

Can i put a bigger than stock tire on my 2006 suzuki gxs600f katana


By bigger I assume you mean wider. I would not run any size tire on a motorcycle the wheels were not designed for. An oversized tire will be too wide, and as result will not have the profile it was designed for. It will also negatively affect your handling, making the bike harder to lean into turns.

Rubing noise when turning. had power steering checked and was good. i can hear it comming from steering. sounds dry, any grease zerks?


As far as the grease fittings are concerned, you should have between 2 to 6 fittings. 1 on each upper control arm, 1 on each tie rod, and possibly 2 on the center links. If you are hearing a rubbing noise, it could possible be the wheels rubbing on the inside of the wheel well. Alot of people like to put bigger tires on 4x4's to add give them extra clearance off the ground, specifically for off roading. But with the bigger tires could also come a wider tire, causing the rubbing. Have your tire dealer check for correct tire size.

Rough ride due to skinny shallow front tire. What is the largest tire that I can put on that wheel. I am willing to put a bigger fender on the bike in order to make a bigger tire fit.


the stock vulcan 800a comes with a 80/90-21, the first number is the width in mm, and the second number is the side wall ratio compared to height, the third number is the rim size. ex. the tire is 80mm wide and 90% as tall or 72mm on a 21" rim. So if you are going wider I would measure the distance between the forks in mm and go from there.
