nothing yet, it's just got a Kerker can on it. It doesn't need anything else. I know it will go up to 230 km/h in the country on straight flat roads, it will layover farther than I will probably take it It's a great bike. my opinion might change in a year but for now, she's good to go :thumb:Thanks for the reply... I went ahead and tried it out it ..of course did work. Let me ask what else have you done to your 919??
hey guys I know this is an old thread but what is the benefit of going to the 190? Were you guys able to fit it on your same rim? Does it handle better than the 180? I have contemplated changing to a 190 because I like the way my friends z1000 handles with a 120 front and 190 rear......
190 is the nominal width from edge to edge, not around the curve.So let me see if I got this straight. The 190 refers to how much contact surface the tire has or is it the height of the tire from the rim to the pad. the 55 refers to rim with (so 5.5 inches)? and the 17 obviously refers to rim size?
We do know it will fit since the op here said that he mounted one and one of the responders says he thinks he could fit a larger tire....
What would I need to change on the bike to go 190 that you are referring to? I know the suspension is adjustable but if i install a 190 tire the only thing I could think to change would be the front tire.
I wanted to try out a190 so I will let ya'll know how it handles. My only concern is turning with a 190 will I be looking at less control or traction on steep turns or is that also subjective?190 is the nominal width from edge to edge, not around the curve.
50 or 55 refers to the profile or height of the tyre from the bead as a percentage of its width, 50% or 55% of 190mm.
17" is the diameter of the wheel around the rim.
You may not need to or what to change anything depending on how it feels to you. There is no hard rule that says you must change something else because you change the tyre profile.
I have a 190 on my 919 with no other changes done yet. I think it actually grips better. Possible the tire as well tho. I got the Power Pilot 2CT on both the front and the rear.I wanted to try out a190 so I will let ya'll know how it handles.

Yep pilot powers are one of the best tires I have tried. Currently I have a pilot road and a Dunlop in the rear. I have never been happy with dunlops on any of my bikes and I wanted a matched set.I have a 190 on my 919 with no other changes done yet. I think it actually grips better.

A friend of mine who also has a 919 thinks mine handles better on the corners as well compared to his stock tires on a 2007 919.
