I see. So personal preference is really the determining factor it would seem. Of course it sounds like the 190 would be better suited for the street rider.luvtolean : It's a bit more stable, in theory should last a little longer, and it should also hook up a little better on the throttle from corner exits. We're not talking huge differences here...
The downside is that it turns in more slowly, and there aren't as many tires available in a 190.
Exactly. I prefer the wider tires personally.luvtolean : Quote (thebackdraft @ Aug. 11 2003, 1:05pm) So personal preference is really the determining factor it would seem.
Dpends what sprockets you are running---stock cain length an 15/45--NO WAY--180X55 rubbed until I made some mods---but with the DK dogbone, I was able to lengthen the chain 2 links---running a 15/46---a 190 X55 would fit NO prob now---dont forget, the tire 'grows' at speed approx 5mm in radiusJoachim2311 : 190/55 requires a longer chain to provide clearance? It's something like 4mm taller than a 180/55 right? So, that
small difference is a clearance issue...I dunno so I'm askin.
Has anyone run a 190/55 with stock length chain, did it rub
Radius, or diameter? Serious question here, as I never thought about this type of expansionBacchus : Quote (Trackho @ Aug. 11 2003, 10:11pm)dont forget, the tire 'grows' at speed approx 5mm in radius
