Did you check the alignment lines on the swing arm?

Drop the pressure to 34-36 cold.
Double check the alignment at the lines.

You can ride it by my house and I can maybe try to help look at it with you but a 190/55 would have been fine idk why he downgraded you to a 190/50

Should have taken your bike to a mh sponser like house if paint or motorcycles unlimited :/

36 psi for that tire is good use a calibrated gauge..

I measure from the center of the bracket or studs. I don't trust the markings on the bike. Sometimes the plates can shift. Also remeasure after final torq.

Sure sounds like the issue to me. Either way lowering the pressure will flatten the profile some and make it better too

You can use any measuring device. I'm in Crosby if you need a torq wrench or ruler. You can find these tools at any lowes or hardware store.

I run 25-29 rear preassure depending on application. I don't wheelie on purpose though.

.026 isn't going to make a difference.
Depending on where you're measuring it from that measurement may not be accurate at all.
Measuring from fixed points like the back of the swingarm to the adjustment block can be inaccurate because the swingarm end tolerance isn't that tight. Nor are the back of the adjuster blocks always even on all bikes.
If you need to be 100% you can measure from the center of the axle to the center of the swing arm pivot bolt, but that can be difficult on some bikes due to footrest, exhausts etc.
The factory hash marks are sufficient unless the bike's been crashed hard. If they're off enough to cause an issue you've got bigger problems to resolve.
As Curt suggested, double check the axle torque, verify the hash marks on the swingarm and lower you pressure.

No, that's hot preassure off the track. On my Honda I run 27-28 rear cold on the street and have no problems.

. I have some Dunlop GPA DOT'S on the he SV right now and I never added air after the last track day. I would guess it has about 17psi in the he rear tire right now. Works great.
