OK, then I suppose a 110/80/16 would also fit and also be undersized? Which would be closer to original oof the two sizes? I'm guessing the 110 is 20mm narrower but 70 is 20 mm less sidewall whereas 80 is half that? I'm guessing the 120/70 would be better just cuz of width and handle closer just amyeb rev a tad more?Yes it will fit and work. It is undersized.
The 130/90/16 is the correct size for your model
I'd love to, but I can't right now afford a $90 to $140 tire. I've had very good luck with this brand and seller. It's a Shinko from Bike Bandit. I'm having a very hard time finding an exact fit in anything but expensive tires. I also am not using this for long trips, just around town and it's part of a broader bunch of getting my cars running so I can sell one to pay to have the other fixed and insured. I need a tired that works, gets me around town, at most an occasional 60 mile round trip, maybe once every three months, and that's only IF I din't get the car running. IT's also likely a temporary fix to have things running and roadworthy before I spend more time getting things in more optimal shape. Sometimes making the money stretch and go a bit father takes priority over having things perfect. I can also better afford the new chain and for seals I need.Get the proper size. I would also be a little concerned about the tire being on sale really cheap, check the date code before you buy it so that you don't end up with a tire that is 4-5 years old.
Well a new not quite right fit has to beat a totally bald proper fit with a slow leak, right? I'm good on a bad tire (been riding rat bikes for time out of mind), but it's an upgrade from what I am running on period, that much is a sure thing.I feel ya brother on the budget stretching...........just be careful when it comes to tires.

This tire is about 5 years now, bald but still withiin the age range probably, I mean it feels fine considering. Thing is I'm lucky the weather is what it is here. The roads are bad but the rain is almost always very light, yuou never see very wet pavement. I have been on bicclles (and VERY good) since I was six, so I do have a real feel for it. My back tire almost never slips even bald. Still it's only having been so broke that's been the issue, so at this point a tire with tread at all is a real improvement.I feel ya brother on the budget stretching...........just be careful when it comes to tires.

Well I looked again and it seems that is a front tire in near rear size? I think I did find one in that size in a rear tire, but couldn't when I wnet back. Anyway I will prolly get the 712's as it has one on front. Sucks tho, $70 so it has to wait till next week to order. Still a matched set is best. I will have to just deal with only the tire for now too. Won't be able to afford any other parts. Still I supposed it will pay in the long run. My Shinko tires have always both performed and lasted pretty well in the past. Compared to other brands it's not that pricey.I'm all for cheaping out on some things but safety on a motorcycle isn't one of them. Bike bandit is pretty reputable so I would imagine the tire they sell you won't be ancient. I don't know how cheap this wrong size tire is but here is the correct size in a shinko tourmaster for $75.https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/shinko-230-tour-master-tires
They also have a Shinko 712 for about $5 less.
