Is it possible to put bigger tires on my sv650.

Recommended Posts

WIth limited output of a650 twin a larger tire will slow the bike and handling. You wanna look at it or ride it?

Definitely Riding. Just look a bit smaller than some other ones im seeing online. Thinking most people change their stock tires or something? Definitely don't want to lessen power or handling. The bike feels very nice as is.

Those tires are OEM tire sizes, if you are happy with the handling and power delivery, stay with OEM tire sizes. 

 

Bigger tire as in wider in profile or taller in profile?

 

If you're thinking wider profile as 180 rear tire.. that will likely change the handling more sluggish, require more effort to change direction, but feel more secure while leaned over. 

 

If you're thinking taller profile, likely raise the rear end, quicken the steering, may also reduce engine rpm, better fuel econ..

 

Either case, make sure the tire clears the swing arm under load.
