Default 190 back 180 on tires

any difference from going on 190 back to 180 on tires? (on a -1+2 sprocket setup)
not if your stunting on it right?

really the 190 was designed for the 6"w rear wheel.
BUT that said lots of racers run the 190s over the 180s on the 600s. i have no experience with the 190 so i couldnt help you aside from stating the obvious that the bike will be less flickable than with the 180.
but really why pay more for a tire that you're not going to fully utilize

Unless you are really throwin that thing down then a 180 will do you just fine. The reason some run a 190 is because they get more rubber on the side so they have more to lean over on. I got a buddy that runs a 190 on his 600rr and doesnt come close to the edge. I think its more of a peace of mind for those afraid of a lowside than anything else.

or that bling factor lol.

Racers could use a 190, they are running way faster than any of us could or should be running on the street.

Run the 180, it will work best for you bike since it is what is designed for the bike n wheel.
