Welcome to CBRF.



The interwebs says that your bike comes with a 130 section tire, so I'm assuming you have a 3 or 3.5 inch wide rear rim. A 180 fits best on a 5.5 inch rim.


That's just to give you an idea.

There's no way you could pop a 180 onto a 3.5 inch tire. And I'd comfortably say that you can't fit that size rim on your swingarm

Hmm, don't know. You'd need to figure out the width of the frame where the pivot bolt lines up, how the shock link works, etc.

Then you can choose a swingarm, then a rim.


Then you need to center the rim, then align your sprockets and rotor.
