Hello all. New here with a tire question.
Below is my flawless 1999 pearl yellow thunderchicken along with some bikes from my other church group members. It has 5750 miles on it, and is bone stock other than the twin Two-Brothers exhaust cans, and the color-matched spokes and inner wheels which I powdercoated myself (watcha think?)
Anyway, here is my question. I don't ride the twisties very hard...I prefer straight-line acceleration and the occassional wheelie, but thats about it. My tires are original to the bike, and I need new ones.
I really like the look of a wider rear tire, so I was looking into the 190/50ZR17 to replace my stock 180/55ZR17, which I understand can be done, but here is my delimma.
Another church member has a new Pirelli Diablo 200/50ZR17 which he wants to GIVE to me if it will fit. That should be a very sharp looking tire, but what I need to know is this -
Will it fit my stock rear rim?
What is the width of a stock rear SuperHawk rim?
Will my chain clear a 200 tire?
Will changing from a 55 to a 50 affect my speedo?
Sorry if these are dumb question, guys, but I'd hate to turn down this tire if I dont have to.
