Me and myself decided to do this lol aaand it almostly didn't fit. Had to tilt the wheel and spin the wheel to get the chain on. Afterwards sat right where it was before with new chain 1.5" tension play. It's like half 1/4" away from swing arm "crown" but I love it. Less power wheelies more center life. Love it :cool:
makes sense if your track riding not so much for street. Track you have more road to engage. Street 190 allows for quicker turn in side to side. Only ads weight.

True but I'm 90% on hwy low 40s high 50s this tires is absolute perfection especially in cold wet conditions, I don't have to worry about no grip. I commute more than canyons basically, taller center. More center life etc.
This doesn’t increase your contact patch tyre pressure does. Like I said this isn’t very useful unless on a track. I get maybe in theory more tire means more grip but your bike weight already sets the standard for contact patch. And so does tire pressure. Plus bigger tyre means more weight.

Nor does it mean tire last longer. There’s plenty of YouTube manufacturers videos explaining this. Bridgestone also has a video.

I'm ur lab rat. So far feels great, especially speeds. I ride min 10k miles a year. 2017 was 20k miles year. We'll see in 2000 miles lol

I didn't mention pressure and patch. Just good cold and wet grip. Plus more center life. Pressure is personal preference. Softer carcass I stick to 34 38 especially R10 and RS11

Didn't mention pressure and patch. So not sure how did that make it here.
How do you assume this adds rubber in tern adding life. Do you assume that since it’s a 200 over 190 that you have even half an inch more dual compound center tire?? Highly unlikely. If motorcycle in question is used at track then yes like I previously reported if not. You just slowed down the turn in on bike. Being as most aren’t able to push their bike to the limit we won’t know in this application. Your better off running sport touring tires that grip well if your looking to get mileage. Also I wouldn’t install a new chain as folks who have. Have had lateral rubbing on front of swing arm.
