I've heard of guys going with a 200/50 but if you go with the cycle image conversion you can go with a 240. The liners essentially have the same rear end as the raider. For $675 cycle image will take your stock 17x5.5 wheel and turn it into an 18x8.5 which will take a 240. The only mod you have to do to the bike is cut out a notch in your fender where it cuts in behind the belt guard. Between the tire and the conversion it will cost you a little over a grand but it is far cheaper than most other wide tire conversions. As far as tires, for stock I prefer the Bridgestones. They don't last quite as long as the Dunlops, but are more predictable.
