Bigger rear tire yz450

David,

I did it, and hated it!!! I did have alot more traction but the added width of the tire made the bike not want to turn. I know alot of others agreed that it was a major problem as well. If you don't ride MX it may not be that big of a deal.

I agree with fastenuf4u...made the bike feel like a pig. Didnt turn nearly as well and gave the bike a weird, very unbalanced feel.

Since a thumper "hooks up" better than a 2-smoke, on an MX track the bigger tire is not necessary in my opinion. The bigger tire is heavier and does alter the bike's handling.

Unsprung weight is bad.........
