Rear tire size XR650R

Recommended Posts

Trying to finish the Motard, having problems with several things.....wrong hub shipped, next wheel that was sent has broken nipples.....and I think the offset is wrong or the tire is too big. 4.25" rim with a Michelin Pilot Race II 160/60-17.

It is hitting the chain and will not clear.

Tire or offset?

Any suggestions on details of the building the XR are welcome :cry:

TIA

Garry

A 160 rear will not fit the 650 without offsetting the rim toward the brake rotor. Go with a 150 unless you want to offset the rim but then it will need to be re-trued. The biggest tire I have seen on a 650 without an offset rim is a Michelin Pilot race H2 150/60/17. They are much wider than other 150's :cry:
