    Default anyone running this size tire.

    So I'm just wondering if anyone is running a 200/50 rear tire. And if there are any clearance issues. I'm running a 190/55 right now, and have been for awhile. I love them, but I'm kinda looking toward a wider profile for show. Thanks everybody.

    My mate put a 200 on his ZX10. He went from being a good rider to a sh!t rider overnight.

    Then he went back to his 190.

    I have to agree with the Hoon on this one and although I hear you don't have a lot of curvey roads down there,believe me those ten little millimeters (five on each side) will have you thinking your going around a turn sideways.
    Tried puttin a 480 x 17 rear tire on a 1975 Goldwing which is normally a 450 x 17 back in my day.That fat tire did'nt work as good as it looked!

    Has your mom been talking about me again Graham...?!



    He's putting his pretty-ass bike into shows and whatnot. If its for improved aesthetics and he looses some performance I'm thinking he's okay with that...

    I understand the whole handling concept guys. I was referring to a show only bike guys. But I'm probably not going to doing it anyways.

    As far as I know, you can put a 200 tire on our rims.

    But unless it's a SBK, why bother? That extra 10 mm isn't enough for a show.

    Do what any self-respecting person does.

    Put an extended swing-arm on it, and a 240 tire.

    nope. an extended swing arm on this style bike isnt my style. think it looks dumb and defeats the purpose of the bike. like i said i understand the whole concept of ruining the handling with a wider tire. i do do this **** for a living now. i just wanted to see if anyone on the forum was running this tire size. next time i'll reword the ? thanks guys.

    I had my fighter in a show against a bunch of short buses (busas). One clown running a 360. He obviously liked his women like he liked his rubbers. Fat as fizuck. I like my rears and women thinner and sticky.
    Bad news, its open season on chumps and I just got my permit.

    Last time I was at the bike shop I asked the sales guy about the 200's. He said that a 200 won't be wider, it would be taller.....because squeezing it onto a rim meant for a 190 would simply force the rubber to increase in diameter, making it taller. Made sense to me but don't know if he was just an idiot and made that up lol.

    Yea I can see why he's saying that. it would be wider, but not by much. a 190 would definitely have a better sidewall area for turns.

    He is correct, just yesterday I saw a 2012 cbr 1k with a 200 on the rear and I have a 190 and his just looked taller, more like a 55 instead of a 50 series and didn't look wider.

    If I'm not mistaken, Pirelli is only selling 200 in the Supercorsa SP V3 now. I know Dunlop made the new 200 series and it turned the Graves MotoAmerica team around overnight. Seems to be where tire tech is heading.
