Hi i have a 1999 c2 zx9r and my rear tyre is shot. I dont have any spare funds for the next few weeks but have a pilot 2ct in the garage but its a 190/50/17.
Will it be ok on my c2 rim? Its either that or no riding in anything but the dryest weather.
Im not a gp racer so i wont be using the tyre to its limits especially now the weather has bloody leaves all over the place, so will it be ok?
Cheers Martin

It'll not be as good as it could be, squeezed onto a 5 1/2" rim but it'll work for getting you out.

The VFR800 rear wheel on my E1 is 5.5", and I've had no issues running 190s on it. Including quite a bit of time on the track.
