BIGGER rear Tires....

I have a SV650S and the stock rear tire is 160 and i want 180 do u guys know how i can get that changed...do i need to replace the whole rear fork in order for that to fit? and how much would everything cost...just a rough guess-timate and should i change it at all cuz of the integrity of the handling and other things....

idk much about SV's but it may fit... the only downside is its gunna effect your ride, so its up to you but proly not worth it.

Turn in will be more difficult and slower... going up 20mm, it might be hard to match up right with the front... IDK.

Also...there is no 'fork' on the rear of the bike. Swingarm is what your looking for.

why would you want a larger rear tire? on an SV, I think a 160 is adaquate. now if you were on a 600 SS, or a crazy powerful modified SV, I'd say the wider tire may be worth it.

I just really like the 180 look...but if it's gonna be for a "crazy powerful modified SV" then maybe i wouldn't go that far...

180 would maybe fit... but I don't think it would look good either... or maybe i'm just really used to the 160

I have a 180 on my bike, you need a 94 pre srad gsxr rear wheel and a spacer kit from Zoran from Twin Works Factory.

And make sure it's aligned right, so it don't eat your sprocket

Lose power? Not according to a recent dyno tune.

Maybe that's what makes him crash all the time...

Do NOT put a 180 on your SV... You will then crash once a month!!

not that this is related or anything but I jumped from a 180 to a 190 on my Gixxer 750 and I have yet to notice the difference... then again I probably dont because I have yet to track it and that would probably be the only place you probably would.

Everyday street riding you should be able to tell. 190 to 180 conversion is very common with the Z1000 guys. You dont need to go to a track to feel the difference.

I do my fair share of twisties and no I cant tell... If anything it handles better than the old wornout 180.... Its still just as responsive as ever.
