190mm tire(need input) and flushmount signals

Hey I wanna put a 190mm rear tire on.... will that cause any harm or will I notice a difference for the better or worse?

I was looking at the Bridgestone battlax BT-016's I currently have the 014's on and I love them so the newer ones should be that much better right?

Also I would like to put flush mount turn signals or some sort of aftermarket turn signals on my 99 fireblade because the stock ones are super ugly and gigantic and suggestions and or pics would be greatly appreciated Thanks!

BT-016 are great tires and are priced right. You can put a 190 on your bike with no problem. However it will change the handling of the bike. I prefer the feel of the 180 but that is my personal choice. Plus a 180 is usually a little cheaper.

Re: 190mm tire(need input) and flushmount signals

yeah well it all depends on the size rim you have putting a 190 on a 5.5 rim not such a good idea cuz it will make the carcass mushroom out more then any tire should but if you have a 6 in rim the you will be fine with a 190 however from experience i suggest that if you do go 190 go with the 190/55 and not the 190/50. the reason is you get a meaty tire and dont loose as much flickability as you would with the 190/50 but ultimately it all depends on what you prefer if you what a nice smooth transition with a little more comfort when your getting really crazy on the track or just some nice twisties then i say 190 but if you like the really aggressive feel then stick with the 180 in my opinion they are both awesome tires when used for different occassions me street and canyons 180 track 190. hope that helped sorry if it was confusing.

Re: 190mm tire(need input) and flushmount signals

I had lockhart phillips teardrop flush mounts on my 99, They cover the front holes in the cowl nicely and were around $20 for the 3 wire. I had the carbon look and my RR is yellow, It looked good. As for the 190 as stated it will change your handling, The wider the tire the harder you will have to throw it into corners. I have heard that the tire on the stock 5.5" wheel is not a good idea, I run the BT-016's and love them. I had a crash and had to go back to the ugly stock ones YUCK

P.S. the site is LPusa
