Cool Rear tire question for 1300c

Can I put a 200 tire on a stock 1300c rim and what size 200/r15 can I use. Do I have to do any mod's. Stock is 170/80 r15. Thanks for answers guy's.

Funny I am not sure about a 200 but I have a 230 on mine. I know of only one tire to do the 230 with and that is an Avon AM21. The reason this works is because of how stiff the sidewalls are. I didn't have to do any mod's on mine and I have like an 1/8th in clearance on the driveshaft side. I know I have read that some said the had to dent in the driveshaft side to get clearance. Some have cut off their fender nibs but I didn't see a need for that either. here is what it looks like.

Yes.
What is your motivation for plus sizing the rear tire?

His motivation is he asked a question. I have met Steve and he is free and over 21. If he is paying for it, what does it really matter? He doesn't need to justify why he wants a wider tire on HIS MOTORCYCLE.

Steph from Canada did his Avon 230 in 2010.
He said some canadian shop was putting the 230 on stock wheels.
Pinched but looks good and fat!

A few years later he went to the 250 kit.
A thread he posted on.
