190/55/17 on 6" wheel F3

Well couldn't find much for this on here, when i was debating the swap. Yes there was the people saying the 190 is going to slow the bike handling down, 180 tire offers more than enough grip, and a few other comments about clearance with the wheel and tire, but nothing 100% LEGIT in my opinion. There was 2 main people on the forum and a race buddy who rode my bike who sold me on doing this and just going 6" and not to mention Dunlop seems to build its 190/55 for a 5.5 or 6" wheel. Q3+ installed right now.

So a whole lot more to come, as get I some seat time in and make the changes to the front end as there is indeed a bit of a ride height increase over the stock 180/55, which i knew was coming. I did not make any changes to the where the back wheel was prior to this, as depending if you run the chain short and wheel forward you might have some clearance issues, as mentioned in other posts.
Here are the clearance pictures, and then i am heading out for a ride.

Not a question at all at this point, the F3's come with a 5.5 inch wheel with a 180/55 tire and the dragster come with a 200 and 6" wheel I believe.. Not that familiar with the 990R, but last I checked that is a completely different chassis etc.


After yesterdays ride, I have some dialing in to do. I did not adjust the rider sag on the new ohlins shock, so I know from just sitting on it, the bike was sitting lower in the back than previously. will get that sorted tonight. As it is, the steering was slowed down a bit, but the bike felt so solid, that trade off on some of the bumpy roads by the house was welcomed. I will say that on the stronger 800cc bike, especially if it is modded with an exhaust and tune, the 190 is the right option.


Ducati23 & TBR Thank you for your input.


Look to get some video up, if weather permits in the coming weeks.

Ah ok - it seemed from the wording you were unsure if a 190 would fit the 6" rim - which seemed strange
