Default vegas jackpot tires

hi all
looking for some advice
my tires are 14 years old so its probably time for new ones even though they show very little wear
would you stick with the 250 40 r18 and the 80/90 21
or go fatter in rear and 90/90 up front
thanks for your opinions

Yeah change the tires mate

I removed the 250 Dunflop before they were finished so i bought Metz 260/40-18 on the rear ...

But the 260 is actually more narrow then the horrible 250 dunflop ... I hear the 240 Bridstone is SUPER good ....

Then on the front i put a night draggon 90/90-21

But now i run a 160/60-18 on the front, ha ha ha

I fitted an XC front wheel 130 70 18 to the front of my Vegas, Bolts straight on,
Youll need the right fender to match though, I raised my skinny one a bit it worked but looked funny.
Then scored a Kingpin USD fork setup and fender and went that way.
Lots of Vic stuff interchanges

Your tires have been expired for almost a decade....

If you want the bike to handle better the Pirelli Night Dragon 240mm rear tire will help a lot. Its rounded profile makes the steering lighter.
