Finally riding my bike to work on these warm 34 degree Wisconsin mornings , I was getting passed like crazy by everyone . My speedo was at 60 on a 55 road ,and showing 70-75 on the 65mph zone ,anyone else experience speedo inaccuracies ? I will have to bring out the GPS on my next ride but curious if anyone else having this issue . Guess I'll have to change my avatar from my ols TX750 now I finally took delivery of my styker !

Very common on metric bikes, 240 tire on my Raider corrected it perfectly, I suspect that when you make the change from the 210 to the 240 tire, it corrects the speedo error too.

Now that I have decided on new tire size- what are your preferences on tire brand ?

Thanks Sis! LOL Now I see a 250 Avon for same price as 240. Think it will fit without any mods?

I have a 7.5 inch rim. I see in another post that Low and Mean said that a 250 would be pushing the limits and possibly hit inner fender supports., so 240 avon it is! Thanks for your help Deja!

You will dig the Avon 240!! It's a great choice Bro!

I think that is a safe start, when you start getting more
people with the 240 and then you see what clearance
you have with that....make a choice from there on your
next purchase.

double check about lowering the Stryker wikth the bigger tire ,the larger tire will be taller unless you go with a wider rim , which will limit how much you can lower the bike

true, but actually not that much, you will dig the look and feel of a Avon 240 out back!!

I used the speedo accuracy and better ride info to tell my wife why I bought tire. (Left out the better look- LOL)
