Rear Tyre

Postby jackspot » Tue Jul 21, 2015 12:30 pm

So the 1995 FZR600 track bike i purchased to do a few track days on came with a 180 rear fitted .My question is as anyone ran a 180 rear on there FZR ..I have not rode the bike on track yet so dont know how it handles ..I was wondering if it is a minus to the handling and maybe i should change to a 160 ...it as the Stock swingarm and the tyre edge is 10 mm from the chain ..Also i dont know what the stock rear sprocket should be on these but there is a 48 on this one ive got
What opinions do people have on the subject
thanks
chris

Try this link

http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/ ... r%2095.htm

It has some info on the stock specs of a 95 fzr 600. As far as riding a 180 rear, I'd like to know how it handles too since I'm currently riding a 160 rear on the streets and am interested in switching to a 180

I've just bought a '94 1000 Foxeye and it has a 180 tyre on. Is there any coding on the rear wheel we could check to ascertain what wheel we actually have?

Somewhere on the wheel (either spoke or rim) it should say something like:
- J 17x5.50 DOT
- J 18x4.50 DOT

For FZR1000 Exup most tyre manufacturers recommend 120/70R17 + 180/55R17 (stock sizes are 130/60R17 + 170/60R17) even though some 180 tyres scrub on the swingarm chain cover.
1990 FZR 1000, 1993 engine, terrible state... but improving.
