Re: 200 rear tire

The handling will definitely be affected. Your gas mileage might drop slightly as well since you're increasing contact patch. It's also possible that you might get some tire rubbing on the swingarm as well.

Re: 200 rear tire

If the bike came equipped with a 190 then you have no problems going up 10mm. However, the handling will act as if you are riding on a tire flattened out by a million miles of highway - Sounds like you're used to that though.

Shinko is a Drag Radial.
I hate to say it, but Shinko is junk. The heat cycle is terrible. All the guys I've been racing with have switched to Michelin Pilot Powers.

Oh, and the Shinko won't shed water well if you get caught in a storm.

I sell both tires. The Shinko R005 is a street tire, not drag radial. The Shinko R003 is a street/drag radial. You can not beat the performance the Shinko R003 gives you on the track for the money, and I have never spun using the R003 Ultra Soft compound! I use them from fresh to no line in the middle.

You are correct about them not being good in the rain. I have riden mine (when getting stuck in the rain) and I didn't push it b/c I know it doesn't have the groove pattern for wet roads.

If you want something other than a Shinko for drag racing, go with the Mickey or Pirrelli. For the money and the way the Shinko R003 U-Soft hooks, you can not beat it!

The Pilot Powers are more rounded so less contact patch on the ground for drag racing.

Re: 200 rear tire

Don't get me wrong, the Shinko hooks hard for about 1 full weekend of racing. After that they need to be tossed.

As for the Michelin having less contact patch, you're right. That tire is still a monster though. Just imagine what that tire would do if you could put about 3 inches of contact on the ground.

I've used the regular R003 for 2 seasons and wore them completely out with a once in a blue moon spin off the line.....
The Ultra soft...I have never spun, and I do wear them completely out where there is no groove in the center.

You might could get that much contact on the ground with the powers if you took it down to 5 lbs of air, but you wouldn't have much mph.
