Gen 1: Tire size

I'm sure it is covered somewhere, but can't find with many search!

I have a generation 1, and currently use Pirelli slicks in 190/55. Right now I can't have this size for a few weeks. I want to know if a 190/60 or a 200/55 will fit (chain and swingarm). I'm not able to find specifications on them. Even with -1 in front sprockt, I'm afraid of swingarm clearance.

when i bought my bike it had a 200/55 on it. 190/60 should work as well but you will need to get custom screws and spacers for the tire huger since it will be that much higher.

My hugger was already rubbing with 190/55, so it is removed right now.

190/55 is a bit smaller than the 200/55 and 190/60 which are all "about" the same size...

not a good idea. i run a 190/55 now too. all you have to do is bring the tire hugger screws to your local hardware store and ask for it in a longer length. you're looking at 50 cents a screw then get 5mm spacers another dollar at most! its worth it. the tire huger is there for a reason. just think about what the bottom of the tail looks like after a burn out! i bet your shooting rocks at your self!

Actually I put a wedge between my hugger and tire an heated the hugger up really hot with a hair dryer then let it cool and took out the wedge and wa-la, no rubbing.
