190 tyre on a 180 rim ?

Does anyone run a 190 section tyre on their F3.
I really love Dunlop GP racer tyres but they are few and far between in a 180 slick. No problem getting a 190. I know people to do it but want to know more specifically about the F3, any clearance issues hitting the hugger or swingarm ?

No issues whatsoever. I've even run a 200

Yep no problems there. V02 slicks read something like 200/655 but when measured are somewhere between 180-190

Either ways they worked excellent around Snetterton, Almeria and Andalusia

any noticeable effect on traction control (and ABS) calibration?

MV's traction control does not work like that.

Could you please elaborate Donsy, also I'm not sure whether this ^^^ mean it does or does not affect traction control?

Wink

Some bikes use tyre diameter, amount of rotation, as part of their traction control, MV uses algorithms written into the software, sensing sudden wheel speed movement and torque changes instead. Others with more English skills than me have explained it much better, it's somewhere on the forum, I think in the Performance or Racing section mate.

As for the question you asked, no it does not affect the traction control set-up adversely, but a change in tyre size will change overall traction.
Putting a 200 tyre on a 5.5" rim is a waste in my opinion, it will almost certainly not work as well as a 190 or maybe even a 180, looking cool is a different story though.

Thumbs up ?

They only measure wheel speed and changes in wheel speed like ABS, the ECU knows

nothing about tire diameter either

Now if we had a real ECU like a Pectel SQ 6M it would be a different story

They (Ducati) did use wheel diameter on the 1198, changing to a different tyre type messed them around terribly at first, guys using HRC race ECU's also use wheel diameter.
With the Microtec you can also use wheel diameter in some parameters.
This is not the case in the current MV range, not sure about the latest Eldor on the F4RC etc.
