wish I had a motard / dual sport, it'll be next








I'm not sure you can go any bigger on the stock rim, if you did the profile would be way off and your tire would wear out faster. an F3 wheel will let you go to a 170

IMHO the 160/60 is the best fit for the SV650

Going to a wider size will hurt the turn in on that bike, and that's what it's best for

Going wider on an SV = bad idea

You can do the F3 wheel conversion to run a larger tire, but in all honesty there's no real gain to be had.
IMO stay with the 160.
We keep most brands in stock in the 160 size, give us a shout.
