if you're going to run gravel at a decent speed, get used to bottoming the forks. tough to avoid since this is not a long travel fork set, and i don't think the problem can be adjusted out. i've bottomed the shock too. if you saw (and heard) me on the move on a pot holed road you'd probably laugh. i'm on and off the gas constantly to keep the front end light and avoid dropping the front wheel into a hole.
front tire/wheel selection preference is largely determined on how you use the bike. there are plenty of forum members running a larger tire on the 17" wheel with the raised fender, and at least two forum members running 21" wheels on rat ninjas, which means it will also work with the versys. i'm using both 17" and 19" front wheels depending on what i'm doing. there are most likely others now using the 19" also.
i'll be running the 19" up north with a TKC on roads that are a typical combination of gravel and paved for a northern or western trip. 2000 miles gravel, 5500 miles paved, and the paved parts can be in rough shape. that's where the 19" shines. you get to run a larger wheel with a decent dual sport tire that has good road manners, keep the tubeless, keep the brakes, keep the handling, keep the 80 cruise.
if your route was all paved, you would do just fine with something else.
i haven't seen anyone run a 130/80 TKC on their versys, or maybe i just missed the photo.
rain, sleet, snow, and a very muddy Dalton. from the fuel stop at Coldfoot. i was glad i had those tires mounted.
