The Dragster ships with a 200mm backtire I read. Is it possible to install a 200mm backtire on a regular 2013 b3 800, and if so, what modifications must be made?

Maybe new wheel. Going with a 190 is easier, this would fit on the stock wheel. 200 not so sure.

Why do you want to do this?

Because of the looks. I find my b3 looks skinny
I don't think it'll look much 'wider' when fitted to the OEM rim...., but it will be a little 'taller'.

Try to visualise a tall pile (column) of tyres (all the same width) ....., the one at the bottom of the pile will be narrower..., but taller due to being 'squeezed' in.

AS others have said, without changing the wheel itself to a wider rim width, all you will do is change your handling characteristics and possibly introduce interferences due to the, now taller, tire.

I did it the other way round.
Now i have a 190/50 on my Dragster
If you don't know you cant see the difference
But the handling is much better!

+1 , my next rear tyre will be a 190 as well.
Do you really feel that much difference in handling Dragster??

yes it does!
its easyer and much better in bumpy curves
you have less influence in the chassis
Dont forget, i changed to the new Metzeler too

That is what i will do.
Why did u choose 190/50 not 190/55. I am just asking cause i have no clue what would the difference be.
Thanks

Does the Dragster have a different rear wheel? I haven't looked, just wondering.....
