front fender has abt 2 cm clearances an same on rear plate holder.

I'll fit on urban, that has high mudguard, but as far as plateholder I think there will be no problem, because tkc fit bmw gs that has almost same clearance with low rear mudguard

I've checked the tkc80 before since I wanted a more aggressive knobbie look. Unfortunately, they don't have the size for the front one. They only have the rear ones for the scrambler. Thoughts?
As stated - many times before - you use the 18" (120/90-18) tire for the front on the Scrambler

This is listed as a REAR tire on most sites.

Tires marked as front or rear tires should only be used in their designated position. Correct matching of front and rear tires is critical to obtaining optimum performance and handling.

Front and rear tires have different handling needs. A front tire has a more triangulated profile for steering control, while a rear tire has a flatter profile for bike stability. Using a tire in a position for which it was not designed will result in reduced handling capability, putting the rider in danger.

I don't think we should give people here wrong information as it will lead to something catastrophic, don't you think?

I'm not giving out any "wrong" information - or advising anyone what to do in this particular instance.

You asked about the TKC80's, and the only way to use them on the Scrambler is exactly how I posted - and as more than a few have done already.

I seriously doubt "handling" is of the utmost concern of those who are looking to use as aggressive a knobby tire as these are anyway.

Not saying your giving out wrong info but putting it out there for everyone to read without even giving anyone a warning about the consequence isn't something worth mentioning. So I went ahead and did. People believe everything that is put out there on the web. As a fellow rider, I'd rather give everyone here a warning about it than prove myself right or wrong.

I for one will use it more on the road than off so I'm sure handling will have a big impact on the way I ride. I've asked this on motorcycle repair shops and dealerships on several occasions and they were unanimous in saying that its a big no no when putting rear tires on the front.

I'm still waiting though. Hopefully they make one since I an going for that aggressive look. :)
