probably been covered ,but cant find the thread ,ok for now but will at the end of the summer do a tyre change ,seems more than enough clearance for a 190 50 17 ,but in your experience will this have a neg effect in the twisties ,ive no concerns with the 180 fitted ,but TBH 190 would look the part,read somewhere buell race run 190 ,but wonder if thats on a 5.5 rim ?

If there's one thing Erik knows about, it's how to make a fine handling bike. I don't know more than him, so can't recommend deviating from std tyre sizes. My 1125 gets used on the track and the std tyre size is fine for me.
