Hmmm... got anything you would recommend for the stock wheel on mine? I'm pretty limited since I'm using the wire wheels... I entertained the thought of sealing the spokes on the inside of the wheel so I could run tubeless, but I don't think the bead would seat properly...

How about this for the front (100/90-19, tube type):

Option 2 (doesn't look quite as good):http://www.bikebandit.com/dunlop-f24-motorcycle-tire

And this for the rear:

Dang that's expensive! That hurts.

Any ideas?
