    200 rear tyre for 06 speedy?

    Hi guys, i have seen pics of an 06 speedy with older 3 spoke wheel and a 200 tyre on the back
    That 6inch rim then takes a 180/190 or 200 tyre. I think it might be fun and that's what they're for is'nt it?
    Has anyone done this?
    PS i do understand about the turn-in ability decreased, but how bad is it.

    Yes have done it, ran the 3 spoke 6 inch wheel for the last 11 years, and ran the 200 about 3 times in that period.

    Normal riding around town the handling is barely affected. It takes a bit more effort to hustle in the tight corners and back roads. You'll notice it, but it's more than capable of still being fun. Just don't expect to corner with any R6s, GSXR750s, OR RGV250s.
