I have a 2016 ZX10R eith abs.

I want to go from the 190/55 to a 190/50. I intend on making some passes at the drag strip, and I want to run a Shinko.

Will the Abs and traction control protest the change in diameter?

Thanks in advance

Tony

Go with the 180. Height will be the same but it will “stretch” and create a bigger contact patch. I would highly recommend turning your traction control off.

Yeah a 190/50 would be a waste of money to be honest. You're not going to have fractions issues unless it's geared, lowered and stretched and even then you have to launch at like 10k. Once you get going you want the small contact patch you can have because of lower resistance anyway.

The bike will be geared and it we I'll also have an aftermarket swingarm.

The shinko 190/50 is the tire I use as it's a very sticky compound, and its reasonably priced.


I had seen an s1000rr the ran 190/50 instead of a 190/55 and it has ABS issues as well. I am hoping someone with experience could let me know if the ZX10 will have similar issues.

Of course traction control will be turned off
