I can get my hands on some Dunlop Qualifier takeoffs but they are all off of gixxer 1000's so they are 190's. Anybody run a 190 on the back with no issues? I'll be getting Q's for the front so I won't be mismatching tires.
I guess if you don't know you shouln't say anothing, i've used both on the track and there both great, it's all about which feels better with the way you ride but there both good, try them and if you don't like them then don't use them.Originally posted by VR6

Your bike will be slower all around. Turn in slower, change of direction slower, more rotaional mass, slower.
If your getting it to look cool and pose on the corner or to stunt then it's a good idea.
190 = Poser
180 = Performer
Thank you very much [8D]Originally posted by 6RracerMP
Going to a 190 doesn't affect the handling that much if you're geometry remains the same. What a lot of people don't realize is that all tires are made differently and have different diameters, so you've got to adjust you're geometry to suit it. I ran a 190 209gp on my 05 636 race bike with no issues whatsoever. The larger contact patch was awesome and grip at full lean was way better.
