Thanks for the info!

When switching from a 50 series to a 55, does the suspension need to be adjusted?
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.
