Seems an odd choice of rear tyre .... possibly the previous owner was doing a 'stop-gap' exercise prior to moving the bike on .... but as all the others say - best to go back to the recommended size of rear tyre.

I just thought it was meant to have that size then I looked at today and thought I'm sure it should be a bigger size than that had a look at specs and yep wrong size tyre will order the right size and have nice new tyres for the France trip what size tyres? (M800) 852880

The 130 rather than 150 indicates this tire is 130 millimeters across from the widest point of its outer sidewall to the widest point of its inner sidewall when mounted and measured on a specified width wheel. This measurement is also referred to as the tire's section width. Not really that big of a deal, seeing as you have stayed upright. Whats 20mm between friends, my woman thinks 160mm is 10 inches. hyst

Hello Morgan,
150/90-15  is the rear tyre size of the earlier VZ800 Marauder( up to 2004),,, the later M800 is also referred to as a VZ800,,, I suspect some one has assumed rear tyre size was the same on both early and late VZ800`s when the tyres were ordered/fitted,,, the front tyres are the same size on both early and late VZ`s
