Default pirelli tire question ??

Ok Folks
at the risk of sounding Stupid here it is..\
I am going to get some Night Dragons from motorcycle super store.
Listed for my rear is a
150/80H-16 very good!

listed as the front is
130/90-16 TL ??

also listed as a rear tire is a
130/90H-16

Seems to me that the 130/90H-16 is the one I want for the front ? Unless there is a difference in tread pattern that would stop me?
And lastly can you put a tube in any tire where it is for tubeless or not?>
Thanks for the help!

Pirelli says they don't make Night Dragons in sizes to fit your bike...

Well they do have the proper sizes

But still I would recommend the Michelin commander II if you go for blackwalls.
One thing I noticed after some time I have them, when I remove the hands from the handlebar at 45/50 mph, the fork/wheel/handlebar, well the front, was "vibrating", it was pretty dangerous. It happened with the metzeler.
With the Michelin, it doesn't happen anymore, meaning they are better balanced.

Default sizes added

recently read where pirelli added more sizes to the night dragon line. buddy put a set on his road queen + liked them better than dunlop or mich he had used prior. i love the night dragons on my 13 hammer, but in the end our likes + dislikes vary for sure
