190/55 rear?

Would the traction control freak out or not be able to compensate for a 190/55 over the stock 180/55? Anyone try this? What would be the result?

About 2km/h better top speed.
Barely noticeable lower mileage on the clock.

The tire people told me "...you won't even notice it."
They hadn't the right size tire that day.

Yeah, no....

You'll be fine, and the bike will handle just fine as well.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

lmao. Not concerned with the steering feel, more concerned about traction control which is probably calibrated for 180/55. I can do without TC but was just curious what would happen with larger diameter. Oh well, one way to find out! Will report back with deets.

Had the slightly oversized tire for only about 6 000 km.
Didn't notice anything about the TC usually on 4 or 8 in rain mode.

Only the odometer showed a minor difference.
