Depends what kind of riding you do. Also depends on the profile shape.

Generally yes, it will make turns a little harder...but again...generally.

For me between the Dunlop 209GPAs (which only come in a 190 rear) and other 180 rears Ive ridden I couldn't tell a difference to notice....and this is track riding

If your going to do it go with a 190/55 if possible--The profile is pretty close to a 180/55. The 190/50 isn't and the bike will steer slower...

I was like this going to go over well.!! LOL

To guy posting you live in Florida where turns in the road are non existent! You don't need a wider tire you would be better off running a car tire. :whistle:

the bike came with a 180 battleaxe (or whatever its called) and it looks puny compared to the 180 michellin power i have on my other bike so it got me to thinking thats all. Im just gonna replace front and rear with the michellins.
