    How does their law define Diameter? By the number on the tire, or by the actual diameter?

    Isn't it weird that in AMERICA our flag and our culture offend so many people......
    but our benefits don't?

    Have no idea but the second number on the tire is not the diameter, but does affect the diameter. It is an indication of sidewall height expressed as a percentage of the width. A 225/50 has a sidewall height of 112.5mm.

    Right, International law or regulation, or whatever. No speedometer from the factory is permitted to show a speed less than actual speed but instead must show a speed of 0% to 10% above actual speed. I don't remember what the tie-in is to a non-OEM tire size that may be installed. I posted the reg here a few years ago. It's nap time and I don't want to go to the bother of finding the post. Sorry.

    I'm good then. Mine is reading about 1% faster than actual speed.

    Does anyone have any experience or comments on these new Kenda KANINE KR 20's? I know this is a question for a dealer, but I'm wondering if it will be possible to have them installed on a new 2020 instead of the "stock" Kendas? I"m planning to meet with a dealer in the next few weeks to hopefully spec out a 2020 RT Limited, and will ask this question at that time.

    When you buy your 2020 spyder Tires are not an option.

    Just an observation; on the Kenda webpage https://powersports.kendatire.com/en...street/kanine/ the KANINE KR20 sizes shown are the same as the Can-Am supplied sizes: FRONT = 165/55R15 55H; REAR = 225/50R15 76H.

    Also, if I Google "Kenda Kanine KR20", I get several listings of dealers that sell the Kanine KR20. I also noticed that their prices vary wildly.

    No idea about the new Kenda quality, but this sounds like a good price (when they're available) . $162/ for three tires

    Kenda KR20 Kanine Quote ''greater mileage than stock, better handling than car tire replacements''. The question is which car tyre? Vee-Rubber-VT MAYBE.

    Something to consider ...Yes this tire is made by KENDA …… but nowhere does it say that BRP recommends it, nor sanctions it for use on Spyders ….. Kenda has already made ( for a few years now ) AUTO tires that will fit the Spyders - but BRP doesn't sanction those either..... I would like to see EXACTLY what is printed on the sidewall of this tire …… Mike

    Yep, its pretty primitive. they check your papers to see the allowed tire sizes - or new modern way is that they check it electronically what you have in system, and they compare it to what you have written on tire.
    In summer I have had one issue, where they took my license plate and papers because of 16ich PPA wheels instead of 15, and I cannot moved the bike, not by an inch. do i have to tell you that my garage was 500m from the spot. and I CANNOT MOVE THE BIKE, because according to POLICE, i willput mi life and others ppl life in danger by using 16ich that are not written in the papers versus 15inch... yup...
