The damping settings will not be affected at least not in any quantifiable way, but you could require a tiny bit of ride height adjustment if you had already optimized your set-up with the 190/50 tire. If you had not gone to that effort you will likely find the 190/55 is instantly a better tire for overall handling when compared to the 190/50.
Definitely , when I put my Ohlins and DK link on , the back went up 7/8''. I was initially concerned I might end up with head shake , but it reacts to bumps under acceleration the same , one shimmy and that's it. I was already running 190/55's and obviously the steering got quicker yet.
I had a feeling Lorenzo was going to call it quits. Couldn't seem to shake off the cobwebs enough to get his nerve back, after that last crash.
So I arrive at an aquaintances place to check out the TZ750 race bike he is building, envious expression, and propped up in his lounge is this SP1 race bike, one of two imported to New Zealand, signed by Aaron Slight and taken for a few laps to check it out. Very nice and more envy for me.
