Default Tires for 2009 HD Sportster XL1200 Custom

Hi, i have misplaced my owners manual. From the internet search, it looks the tires for this model is MH90-21 for front and 150/80-16 for rear.

I would like to confirm whether those are the right specs and if yes, any recommendation on which brand/store to buy?

Did you misplace your bike? ...right there on the sidewall



Yes, MH90-21 for front and 150/80-16 for rear are the OEM sizing.

You might think about using a 90/90-21 in front (MH90=80/90)

Pirelli Night Dragons are good tires and have a $66 rebate running currently.

Check jakewilson dot com for good prices

Thank you so much for the response @multihdrdr

It didn't strike me to check out the sidewall :-(

I bought the ties and a new jacket from jakewilson (thanks for that as well).

Cheers

As for an owners manual, you can download one from the H-D website, just go to the Owners tab.
