Bridgestone Exedra max 180/70 15 rear tire (looks awesome)
Bridgestion Exedra max 90/90 21 front tire, in this case the clearence between tire and inner fender support is so small, sometimes when you brake so hard the deformation on the tire makes this one rubs with the fender in the center, same happens when you ride over gravel or debris.

Does anyone know what driver backrests fit the 900 Classic LT? There's a ton for the 1700, but the only one I found was on meancycles.com. Do the 1700 one's fit?

This cover fits my vulcan 900 with windshield and saddlebags very well (just like website claims)! I couldn't be more pleased with the fit.

Either way is right, if you go to NAPA you can ask for a 1358, NAPA and Wix share the last four numbers as Wix. Wix makes NAPA's filters.
