    If you are looking for a Dual Sport or Adventure style tires on an XSR900, you have to find the same sized tire as stock. Going with different sized tires will mess up the ABS and TC system. Since the ABS and TC systems run off the front and rear wheel speed sensors, going with different sized tires will give false readings.

    Very valid point. On top of that, the clearance between the rear tire and the M4 exhaust is small, I wouldn't risk putting something with a much different shape (same for the front fender).
