Forgive me if this has been addressed before, but I couldn't find it.
Are there any clearance issues with 70 series tires other than the change on the center stand between 60 & 70 series? i.e. any problems under the fender or with the frame?

I have an Elite III 180/70R16 on the back of my 1800 and it clears everything just fine. It is a little squirrely at 85 to 110 mph so I've tried to slow down to 85 or less and live with the squirrely-ness when I want to try the wild side. The tire is fine on everything but high speed riding.

I have about 6,000 miles on my E3 70 series and not a problem of any kind. The 70 will always be on the rear of my GW. :D

I've had no issuew with fit and no squirrels either. I have seen several posts by riders reporting odd high speed handling though; but not me. I've gone teh lt 32,000 miles on a 70 rear and am considering going back to a 60 just to sample the OE again. Might even try the Bridgestone front and Metzeler rear combination. WIth the 70 rear fitting, I have been most pleased with Avon.
