OK, first run on mine of ~100 miles, was initially very tentative with them as normal with new tyres.

No problems whatsoever with the 190/55, I was fairly confident they would be OK after trying the Ducati UK 959's at Silverstone on that size. Also really pleased with the grip from the Bridgestones.

So far, so good and a thumbs up from me.

Can you post some pictures of the crown clearance of the inside parts of the swing arm?

Ive been too busy riding, but the clearance is no different to the 180/60, if you think about it a 190/55 profile will probably retain a pretty identical profile to the 180/60 on the rear, and this is why it doesnt upset the t/c or other electronics.

The thing that sold it to me was that the California Superbike school are using 190/55 on their 959's in the UK.

Useful info thanks guys! It's been a bit worrying because I know people who have put 180/55 and had issues when leaned over. So if 190/55 is working then I may try one!

Does it slow the steering down at all?

Good Afternoon,

The bike leans in fine. I took it to the track and it went into a lean like pretty good. Not as good as my R6 i will say I could feel the Duc fighting to stand back up. More workout on the Duc then my R6 but I am not sure if that has to do with the tires or if it has to do with the bike set up itself. But knee was dragging lol.

yea I ended up with the 190/55 Diablo 3. Tires seem a bit sluggish flicking back and forth compared to the 180/60. Maybe its the tire profile. Just my .2
