Well, ironically i had a set of Metzeler m7r's on there but, (and i know some, well, alot would disagree) but they were damn near dangerous...****ing awful...i actually took them off my RSV4 ( i went with the reviews at the time ) they were so bad on there i took them off after 500 miles and went back to supercorsa's (they still set the baro, for me) So, yeah ive had a 200 section on there and i will go back to a 200 section but not a metzeler....

If my current tyres last....just for the occassion ill probably stick a set of supercorsa's on it as im probably going to take it to the TT this year, as i normally/always take my rsv4...

Has anyone had to adjust their gearing due to the increased diameter of the larger rear tires ?
