260 rear tire
« on: Apr 05, 2021, 02:06:29 am »
Hello,

I've seen on fb Raider group, that somebody fit a 260 tire on the rear, with no issues ...
Is there anybody here with a 260 rear ?

Thanks
Marcel

    It well fit but really  tight and you well have to trim or remove the belt guards, 240 is the best fit and the deepest tread, 260 well be more rounded

    My 240 Avon rubs my stock plastic tailpiece which hangs down below the license plate, slightly, I suspect, when I go over bumps.   The plastic piece has signs of rubbing, mainly when the tire is new.

      I donít believe you can run a 260 without modifications.

      That's what I thought, but others were saying you could, so I figured I was mistaken.  I've heard of a 250 being used and it's more rounded.

      I ran a 250 on my 14 SCL. I hated the way it handled so I took it off.  There was maybe a couple mm clearance on each side between the tire and the swing arm and the belt guards, ainít buying that the 260 would fit.
