I'm busy doing homework to see if any 18" tyre will work on the 701.

But....tyre too wide for the rim, etc. :'(

There are a lot of riders who use a car tire on the rear of Yamaha FJR1300s.  These are mostly the guys who do regular long distance rides.

@Takashi, do you remember the guy on ThinkBike who fitted a car tyre to his FLR1300?  He did all those long distance rides like Iron Butt and 4 Corners, etc.  For the life of me, I cannot remember his name.  He said that normal cornering was no issue, but he would advise against serious high speed cornering.
