Ok so I have had the bike for six years now and have only changed the tires once and now will be the second time. They are currently the stock size and I wanted to go with a 190/55. I have all stock suspension and was wondering how much suspension work I would need to do to make this tire work well. I weigh 180lbs.

I live in CNY so I carve canyons during the summer and ride the interstate to work as well.

Any help would be appreciated. Any tire types would help as well.

thanks ahead of time!

i can say i run 190/55 on my 10r and rc51, i like the easier turn in. since i bought the bike and immediately put the 190/55 on it and had the suspension dialed in, not sure how "off" it all was.

but i did go from a 50 to a 55 on the 10r and did my first ride at the track. i immediately felt the bike was ass end high and unstable and brought it in after 2 laps. after some adjustments etc. all is well.

i'd put it on and see what you notice but it'll be best to get it looked at.
