Post Rear tyres

Back on the old tyres theme again. The 750 F4 has the option of having a 180 or 190 rear hoop. As far as I know, the 1000 has just the 190 section rear. Anyone tried a 180 on the thou?

well, not to confuse the issue too much
the stock tires for the 1000 is a 190/50
while the 750 got a 180/55

how about a 190/55? several tire manufacturers offer it. best of both worlds? one issue with the 190/55 is that it is VERY tall. so you may need to make some geometry adjustments if you want the bike to feel the same.

i'm really thinking of using a bridgestone bt-002r (medium) in a 190/55 for a track day...

Only the SPR and Senna got a 180 that I know of. All normal 750's were also delivered with 190's. Just an FYI aside.

Given my exposure to riding a Tamburini and a normal 1000 several times I'd say it could benefit from a 180 to match my particular style and preference. Very stable but I prefer reaching where I want to be on the tire sooner.

Don't know whether it's a UK only thing James, but my Evo III definitely had a 180 rear, not a 190. Can't remember what the aspect ratio was, 55 I think. Can any of the other UK members with a 750 F4 help? I'll ask Sandy if he doesn't see this first. Update; yes it was definitely 180/55

Gents,
I have fitted the following to my 1000: Front Supercorsa SC1 (soft) standard size; rear Supercorsa 190/55 SC2 (med) and yes, it does raise the rear slightly but not an issue for me as love the extra weight over the front, the result, (track) absolutely awesome!! The rear was developed for World super stock, the extra contact patch does make a difference particulary with drive / grip off the turns highly recommend !!
cheers

Question

Sounds good JSM, I'm a fan of the Michelin Pilot Powers myself. Does the 55 ratio rear really make that much difference compared to a 50?

Yes the 190 / 55 profile does make a huge difference as you can lean it over much further. You can only buy the 190 / 55 in track tyres such as supecorsa etc. Road tyres are 190 / 50. The supercorsas are awesome on the track and warm sticky southern french roads though I wouldn't want to push them on British roads except maybe on the very hottest summer days

On my 03 R1 I ran supercorsa sc2 front and rear with a 190 / 55 rear in the summer and a 180 / 55 pilot power in the winter.
Once I get my F41000 in a month or so I'll stick on the same supercorsa's again for the summer

John,
yes I do believe there is a difference ( had a 50 on previously) R, do not know what you mean re British roads? I have used the set up on the road (cold weather) and its awesome or are you referring to wet roads?????
