HAHA!!!


OK, back to a serious note for a second. Will I need to adjust my suspension when making a change to a 190/55? More than likey, I am leading towards the BT003s. I know I should start a new thread but its directly related to my original question, Thanks.

Yes you will. The best way to do this by having your suspension guy/gal with you at the track.

The BT003 front is surprisingly the same size as the Diablo Corsa III front (600mm overall dia). The 190/55 BT003 rear is 652mm overall with the 190/50 Diablo Corsa III being 647mm overall dia. If your running stock suspension, I'd run it like it is. The difference from the ground to the center of the wheel is only 2.5mm, and thats not much. Get the suspension setup for you (i.e. sag, free sag and get it bounced on)

Will do. I spoke with Curt at MSR-H and mentioned a specific guy to have look at and help me make some adjustments....cant remember his name...

What do you mean by get it bounced on?
Patrick set the rider sag, free sag a few months ago.
