Upgrading to these sizes gives your bike that custom look
Metric upgrade users must verify that minimum tire clearance is met
Modified or Lowered bikes may not be valid for upgrades
STAGE 1 UPGRADE
The Metzeler Stage 1 Upgrade helps you improve mileage, ride, handling, and looks without modifying your bike. A true BOLT-ON upgrade for everyone
STAGE 2 UPGRADE
The Metzeler Stage 2 upgrade requires modification to your motorcycle's wheels,
fenders, spacers and the purchase of other small products to achieve the look and ride desired. Metzeler offers more sizes than any other tire company, with the same famous upgrades for ride, handling and looks, or on a different diameter wheel. These changes may require modifications to your brake stay-arm or exhaust mounts. Clearances must be verified by installer/consumer
STAGE 3 UPGRADE
The Metzeler Stage 3 upgrade always originates with a standard Harley. Modifications begin with the swing arm; typically the purchase of a wide tire swing arm kit is necessary.
This upgrade also requires new wheels, fenders and tires, but it will give you the
maximum effect in terms of upgrading the looks of your bike.
Handling and performance remain at the high standards you have become accustomed to from other Metzeler tires.
IMPORTANT FITTING INFORMATION
Correct rim width may be critical to handling and stability. A tire which is installed on a wider than recommended rim will have a "flattened" profile, with a smaller contact patch during braking
Remember tire clearances are important. Changes to your frame and suspension could alter the handling characteristic of your motorcycle and cause clearance problems
While every effort has been taken during the testing of these motorcycles, Metzeler cannot guarantee that modifications will not be necessary to fit these oversized tires on your model of motorcycle
