  • 180 rear tire for TL1000R?

    I noticced that many of you have 180 rear tires vs. stock 190. Can I put one on my 99' TL1000R stock rim? And how does it ride vs. the 190?
    Thanks

    Alot more flickable.. FYI the M-1 180 is alot more narrower than the Dunlop 207. I will be doing a M-1 190 next... This thing is too squiggly. The Dunlop 207 180 was awesome. It just didn't last long.

      of course you can. the 180/55x17 has a taller profile so turn in is better. you have less contact area than the 190, but it doesn't seem to bother all of us who have switched.
      2002 TLR B/W . Yoshimura bolt on Titanium cans. Yosh box remap. Joe V airbox mod. plug in TRE. 17/41 sprockets. Zero Gravity double bubble screen. fan switch. HyperPro steering damper. Extreme Graphic Top Gun undertail. Ohlins rear shock.

      Gear: Arai Quantum f. Joe Rocket GPX 1pc suit. Alpinestars Super Tech boots. Alpinestars GP-1 gloves----always wear it all

                        Nah. It is the 55 part that shows you are serious.

                          I have a 180 BT-020 on my TL-R right now. I'm still not sold on it being the hot setup. Sure, it turns in faster. But, and this is a pretty big but, every time I do a track day, I ride off the edge of the rear:



                          And I don't think it's a matter of not getting off the bike enough:



                          My style is to carry lots of corner speed. It comes from years of racing a 366 lb 400cc Honda, I guess. I love diving under other riders on the brakes.

                          So the problem I have is when I'm heeled over, and I start feeding in throttle, the rear spins up in a nasty, nasty way.

                          I know that the BT-020 is a sport touring tire, and this kind of behavior does not particularly suit this tire. But I used to ride just as hard on Dunlop D220s on my VFR.

                          I'll likely spoon on a 180 BT-010 before my next track day (which is just two weeks away).

                            i agree with Slapper. I've done track days on a 190/50 and recently on a 180/55, there is a difference in stability, well i noticed it, and it wasn't confidence inspiring. Though i did like how it turned in a bit quicker. I'll be trying out the 190/55 this weekend at spokane, so hopefully it'll give the stability of the 190/50 and the quicker turn in of the 180/55.

                              I've got a 180 207 zr and the thing's a piece of shit. fat wide and turns slower than a fat person walking around a corner. Next will be 180 M-1's. I had 208 gp's on my tls and they rocked. they held up all the way over to the pegs scraping.
                              Why yes I am a jackass, thank you.
