Can I replace the headlight and tyres of Bajaj V with Royal Enfield’s headlight and tyres?

You can replace the headlight of Bajaj V with Royal Enfield’s headlight as the headlamp of both bikes is 55/60 W but you cannot replace the tyres as the tyres dimension of both bikes is different, Bajaj V front tyre is 90/90 18” 51P tubeless and rear is 120/80 -16” 60P tubeless, while the tyres dimension of most of the Royal Enfield bikes is 90/90-19” front tyre and 120/90-18” rear tyre, so different dimension tyres cannot be fit in Bajaj V as tires ‘grow’ at speed – temperature and centrifugal force cause a spinning tire to be measurably larger than one at rest. Tires that are too wide can hit swingarms, chains, or driveshafts and can change gearing ratios and speedometer readouts, and can also contact fenders or swingarms. The designers who engineer bikes usually are highly trained, and they apply that training to find a tire combination that accents a vehicle’s virtues, and minimizes its shortcomings.
