I have a 110 90 19 on the front. The 140 should fit the back, but I'm not positive. I run a 140 90 16 on one 77 and a 140 80 18 on the other. The 16 requires gentle persuasion to fit. The other has lots of clearance.

If you have spoked stock rim, 140 is not recommended, it's too wide. I looked at mine the other day and it's pretty tight with a 110 and a stock fender in the front.

I hope you have a lift or way of getting the bike up in the air so you don't have to pull the bags. It can be done without pulling the final drive. Pull and support brake caliper out of the way, remove spacer and then lift and move the whole assembly away from the final drive.
