Hey guys and girls,

Just had a question about the 2014 f3800, has anyone fitted a 190, 195, 200 tyre to the rear yet, if so, does it fit, and did it change the bike? I'm just a casual rider, weekend and some week days, never going to have the bike on the track.

I'm only asking cause I think a wider tyre on the rear look a lot tougher then a thin tyre.

Dunlop only makes a 190 race tire, but it is designed to fit on the 5.5" rim. It is the spec tire in AMA.

That's the USA spec, we also get the UK spec Dunlop's, a much better tyre.

Totally agree on the UK tire being better especially the front. Outright grip is similar but the UK tire lasts a lot longer. Still a 190 from UK as well.

Fast Bikes magazine here in the UK just reviewed the Dragster and they weren't that impressed with the 200 tyre that it sports, sure it's more stable on the straight but it doesn't allow you to exploit the full use of the lean available or all of the front tyre because of the profile of the rear, beyond aesthetics they thought it added nothing and the stock Brutale was better, especially on the road.

Remember that the Dragster has a wider rear rim than all the other MV triple's thus far.

True a wider rim will give it a flatter profile I guess, still think it's a bad idea though.
