It fits, but if you are used to the quick handling of the 929, you will notice the 'roll' to become slower using such a large tire.
A lot of people actually go back to a 180 even. After 180mm, the bigger tires are 'mostly' for looks.

Jay is totally right about the turning thing. The 190 or 200 series will have a larger contact patch, though. I also heard a 200 series won't fit. Why would you want it anyway?

Re: anyone running a 200mm rear tire?

cause some people think 'bigger is better', some like the look of the wider tyre and the bragging rights that go with having a 200

Why would you bother?? The blade handles better with a 180 rear anyway.

Re: anyone running a 200mm rear tire?

I run a 190/55 and think the bike handles great. If I ever get my 16.5' wheels I'll be runnning 195/xx tires. The aspect ratio is going to determine your turn in (aside from chasis geometry). I prefer the slightly larger contact patch of the 190 to the slightly lighter 180. I'm not familiar w/ the 200 tire you're talking about.

I always find it funny when you see guys at ridedays with every bolt on extra, tyre warmers and laptops etc..then they cant ride at all!. They're like mobile chicanes.

200mm tyres are like that

Do they let you time at your track days?
At the Island now, you are not allowed to time anyone, other wise you will be given a warning and then next time asked to leave, apparantly they had to bring this rule in for insurance reasons.
But after typing that, several people were seen with stop watches, but the rule was not enforced

Haven't heard about the timing thing at Eastern Creek. Although they're getting stricter and stricter.

If all you do is stunt then it's probably great. *I've got a friend that had a Gixxer750 (shrad to those in 'the know' ) with a 200 on it...probably why he'd never ride the twisties with me

Re: anyone running a 200mm rear tire?

i didnt think about the 200 being slightly heavier?? you would not want the wheel to be heavier because it has more inertia or momentum, i should say and so that affects the way the suspension keeps the tire on the ground. imagine if your wheel was real heavy, it would slap up after a bump and then the dampener would have to slow it down and spring it back to the ground. you would have to have diff dampener or spring set up to compensate. thats why sports cars have light wheels...so the suspension can control the wheel movement up and down better to keep the tire contacting pavement as much as possible. thats why struts wear out real quick on these suv's etc, whith huge wheels. the weight diff going from 190 to 200 is prob negligable, but still you would think the shock designed for specific wheel weight? Man, the 190 looks perfect on my blade and prob wont try the 200?

Re: anyone running a 200mm rear tire?

over all how much of a difference is the 190 from the 200 in terms of looks on the bike? does the 190 still give you a wide appearance on the bike or does it still look like a 180 is on the back? just wondering
