    190 rear for the R6


    OK got a question I talked to R7 about running a 190 for a rear versus the stock 180 he said should be ok.. Than i post the same question in a R6 forum and one of the kids had this for a reply

    I would be more concerned about tire/chain clearance, it is damn
    little on a 180! The 190 is, of course, 10 mm wider or .4", or .2"
    (almost 1/4") closer to the chain, too close for MY comfort. Once the
    chain has ground off the extra rubber you're good to go!!

    How can I check this to see if I am good to go or not ???
    Thanks in advance Jen

    why do you want to go to a 190? wouldn't it make the bike turn slower and have a heavier feel?

    190 rear for the R6

    I've seen R6's with 190's on them, they do fit. Eric from the Vt rides, had a blue 99 R6, he had a 190 on his. Yes, the 190 is 10mm wider than a 180 but it is also going on a rim that is 13mm narrower than what it should be on. It won't "look" any wider than the 180 You can check fairly easily if it will fit, messure the distance between your chain and the tire you have on now, if you have more than 5mm (half of the 10mm size differance) it shouldn't be a problem. But again, the 190 won't actually be 10mm wider on your R6 rim. Follow?

    190 rear for the R6

    Oh, and for tire to chain clearance? My R7 has less than 1/8th inch between the tire and chain and i have had no problems. I also upgraded to a 190 from a 180 on the R7 but it has a 6.25" rear rim.

    UMMM that means I can burn yours off and leave my bike off the burnout bored so I won't have to pick the rubber off the undertails for weeks later
