You could go with a 210 on the stock rim of the ZX-14.

You will notice a difference in ride quality, tire wear.

For what purpose do you want to do this?

the only purpose you need it that wide is to hook up better.

Some people do it for looks.

Besides if he puts that big of a tire on the stock rim it will cup the tire resulting in a smaller contact patch then what he has now on the 190 tire.

I guess all the guys with the 240/280/300/330 size tires on their choppers and custom sport bikes all drag race. No don't think so......

Cool

So, I guess, I should go with a 200'. Thats what I was thinking anyways, Its probably the safest bet! oh and, I like to ride and drag. So 200' it is. Unless 210' would work?

Yes I would say use a 200 or even a 190, If you start putting bigger tires on stock rims they do cup, like I said before, you would be surprised as to what a good tire will do on the strip even with a 190, plus you can still handle and perform good on the street and twisties.

I run a 180 on my R1 it stretches the tire well for a wider contact patch and is lighter.

When I wake up in the morning I piss excellence.

I think these guys are right. There is no easy way to change it. The best thing would be to just reduce the air pressure.

and drop the air pressure& slam the bikes to the ground... all for drag racing
