TKC80 and Tire size?

Hey guys I have a guy on my local Kijiji selling a almost brand new set of tkc80ís in sizes 140/80 17 for the rear and stock size for the front. My question is I know skinnier tires can be better for off-road but how does the v650 like them. Has anyone run a 140 on the back? Also with it being an 80 aspect ratio any fitment issues to worry about? Also how are the TKC80ís road manners? I seem to get mixed reviews online but thatís also other bikes with diff size tires.
