Anybody run a 190/55 on their SD rear...benefits/downside??

I've only ever had a 190/55 on mine and am intrigued as to why it was on there in first place (as was this size when bought bike from last bloke)

I read somewhere a while back that puttin a 190/55 on rear wrecks the handling!!!??? Really......am I missing something here? Will it improve handling by putting a 180/55 back on it with next change......I didn't think there was much wrong with it as is but always glad to improve (need all the help I can get!) :D

meant to turn in a bit better/quicker with a 180. never had one on tbh. i doubt it would make a huge difference. but when its worn maybe try a 180.
whats the clearance like with a 190? id heard it can rub the swingarm?

Thanx for info.....clearance 8-12mm each side, has rubbed a mm off the chain guard but that's the lot

The 190 will slow the stealing down a bit. Also you can't run a shorter wheelbase as it rubs on the swing arm.

Yeah sorry my iPad has a habit of auto correcting to the incorrect word.
