I see that the 1300S/R and C have different front tire sizes, 140-80 and 110-90. Has anyone used a 140-80 on a 1300C? I'm just thinking about getting new rubber for spring. I know alot are doing well with the 880's and Avon's. Anyone like the Conti's?

If I am not mistaken the wheel on the C is 21" and the wheel on the S/R is 17". Probably the reason for the skinnier tire on the C.

I will have to be convinced that there is a better tire out there than the Metzler ME880 for my bikes. I have them on both bikes now and I love them.

I agree with you Spike on the diameter's. I'm just wondering if there "more" tire available in the S/R sizes. Plus the fender clearence might be a problem.

That would be your problem, finding a tire in that size to fit the 19 rim. They come in narrow sizes typically. Try going to Metzeler's website to see if they do
