    Default Mousse M14?

    Will the M14 fit the stock rear Dunlop tire? ('18 XCW300)
    Reading some posts say I should have ordered the M18....
    Recommendations before the install battle begins?

    thanks

    M14 is for a 140 80 18. I would say a US 140 because the euro 140 seems smaller. What size is the tire?

    I run a M14 with a 110/100 X 18
    That is what Rockymountain shows for the 110 and the 120

    The only concern was that the box of the M14 said it was for a 140/80 18... I will begin the install....(lots of tire irons and tire lube)....thanks

    It will fit but might be a bit hard for a few rides so it depends what type of riding you do and whether you are willing to run it for a while till it softens up. If you don't mind a slighty higher pressure feel you will get more life out of it at least.
    For the "blue box" michy bibs the m18 is good in the 110/100/18 starcross 5 and the bigger m14 fits the 120/90/18 starcross 5 and feels good straight away so this combo is good to fit new for a race with confidence.

    For a point of reference, I have a M14 in the IRC M5B 140/80 18 and it's perfect.

    I agree that the blue box M18 fit great in my 110-100-18 Shinko 525, the Blue Box M14 is going to be a challenge to fit and it will be hard as a rock
