190/55 tire on 05 ZX10R

Hi guys,

I need to change my tires, and i have a 190/50 at the back now. Want to place a 190/55.

Will it fitt? Or will it hit the rear fender or swingarm?
Someone told me a longer chain is needed. But my chain kit is not worn yet.

grtz

It will fit just fine with no problems or issues man. Unless you JUST installed a new chain and have the rear wheel/axle pushed as far forward as possible.... You won't have any issues as the 55 Is just 5mm taller then the 50. Comes out to less than a 1/4" or .25" I believe.

As TMY said, it will fit and help out the handling quite nicely. You may have some clearance issues with the rear hugger though, depending on the tire (the profile and how much it grows at speed) and how much chain wear you have. If the rear axle is moved forward because of gearing changes or chain condition, you're more likely to have issues as opposed to it being towards the rear of the adjustable range. The easy fix for most guys running that tire who do have issues is to just unbolt the hugger and go with it.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

No, not necessarily. Plus, you just cut it to length anyway. Depending on your gearing, you may not be able to add a couple links. You'll just have to see. The easier way would be to drop a tooth on the front sprocket, which will give you some more room. Or just remove the hugger.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

lol, go -1 on the front when you change tires and youll have plenty of space and not worry about it. I was dumbfounded how much more stable the Gen 1 is when the rear axle is pushed back for that little extra wheelbase.
