Larger tire on KLR?

Hello, the KLR takes a 130 on the back, has anyone put a 140 on her? if so, how did it work out?

Some do fit 140 and even 150 tires under the klr.Of course knobbies are harder to fit.
The chain guard is usually an issue, and sometimes the muffler.I have heard of shimming the muffler out some.
You also have to make sure the rim width will handle the tire.
A guy on advrider has a 150 street tire on his klr with the stock exhaust.

Thanks

Thanx all.
Gas Guy, the link worked great.

I just bought and shipped tires here, had not put them on yet but finished the rest of my repairs, upgrades, and painted the bike. Ready for a great summer of riding through the mountains. Then just making a short ride from the house a drunk coming at me chased me all the way off the road and and still hit me. Messed the bike up and broke my arm.
