trying to make sure that my a 190/55/17 will fit without rubbing my swinger. im away from my bike for the next few weeks so im trying to get tires there fro when i get home. ill have 3 days before track day so i want to make sure it will fit. i know they "should" but just looking for a conformation. never ran a 55 on the track so im excited to try it. here are 2 pics. tire and dirty ass swinger, axle/chain adjusters position. chain tension is correct. gearing is 15-41.

I've been using a 190/55-17 tire on my SP2 for years without any issues.
If your tire is far forward on the adjustment, then maybe, but mine usually stays near the middle of the range (similar to your photo) with no problems.

I asked the same thing a little while ago on here, and everyone told 190/55/17 was fine. So I got them, and it was fine. Enjoy. :D

Yup, you'll be ok. Sometimes people have issues when running a tire hugger, but in your case you'll be fine.

I didn't shop too much because I got them from ATV with the dunlop discount. Such a good deal I got the spring deal for tires for my RC and then the summer rebate on Q3s again for my 919.

You will like the tires.

That is where I got mine too, but it only came out to $236 (minus the $40 rebate, $196).

i ran q2 on the track the last few times i went and liked them so im sure ill like the q3s. been running the michelin road 2 and 3s for the street, but i think ill keep the q3s on this time. i moved a half mile from my work so its not even worth it to ride in the winter. that will save alot of miles on my tires.
