Yes, It should fit fine. It will be a tad taller.

Did it years ago and never looked back. Will be a touch taller but you can adjust accordingly.

ok, the rear tyre on the bike is a 190/50 and in the manual this is as it should be however most of the rear tyres I can buy are either 180/55 or 190/55 so I'm a bit confused.

Andrew, my F4 750 came from new with a 180/55 which i think was pretty much standard for the 750's although i do remember some also coming with 190/50 on the same size rim (if i am not mistaken) but handling wise this was not the preferred profile and the 180/55 was considered better. However i think you should wait for one of our more knowledgeable members to chip in here as my ideas might be outdated.

But from personal experience and research some years back when i was doing only track days i decided to stay with the 180/55 option.

I have Conti Sport attack 2 on my F4S Andrew.
Front 120/70 and rear 180/55.
Works brilliant.
