Jason we are going to have to try and use that milling machine and try to make my rear swing arms bigger to make room for bigger tires for my bike. :)

Hmmm, may have to build a new swingarm to do that or buy one that can be modded to fit. Keeping it strong and keeping alignment good are a must.

I think the sv650's are setup for a 160 rear. Wider gives a lot better traction and somewhat better stability though you have to get into it more for turns.

You could go up to a 180 on the rear if you used a wheel off another bike. Maybe one of the bandits or something. You may find it accelerates a hair slower, but probably not a big deal there.

I run a 190 in the rear but my bike is huge so it fits perfect. I could go wider but no need and I think 190 is the perfect mix of balance, traction and still good mobility. Besides, since I don't have any chicken strips, I need the extra sidewall to wear into haha.
