I just bought a set of new Dunlop Q3 Sportmax tires from a friend. Has anyone ran a 180 rear on their N1K, any feedback on handling pluses/minuses if they have? It comes down to mounting them on my N1K or my Shiver.
Maybe you're correct, but I find it hard to believe that the 180/55 is any different than a 190/50... it should be worse since you are flattening the curve by stretching it onto a 6 inch wheel. The 180/55 is designed for a 5.5 inch wheel. The 190/55 is the perfect tire size and is what most people with an N1K move to from the stock 190/50's. The 190/55 coupled with pushing your forks all the way into the stock risers makes the bike nearly fall into the turns.
