Wider rear tire?

    Hello guys,

    I have a 1981 Yamaha XS400SE and I want to change the sprockets and chain. I read around here that the DOHC models have a offset sprocket to fit a wider rear tire.
    I am interested in fitting a wider tire and don't really know what sprockets to buy. Do they both need the same offset for the chain to be straight? What kind of offset should I be looking for on aftermarket sprockets?

    Thanks a lot guys.
