True or False

New tires on your 919 will cause the bike to lean over on it's kickstand (much) more.

Maybe alittle bit because of the extra bit of rubber, but not enough to notice a difference.

I think it depends on the tire more, some tires are more rounded than others, Some will have and oval egg shape while others are still rounded but flat-er in the middle, but again, I don't think it would be that noticeable at all, maybe I just never looked that hard at it.

The profile of the tire can make a difference as well. So yes, it can happen.

it's not the new tires, it's because your sidestand is sinking into the hot melty asphalt! Quick! Go catch your bike before it falls!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Wouldn't have thought so. Unless the profile of the new tyres are drastically different to the ones you are replacing.

The 056's I just replaced were worn --- I put new 016's on and the bike is leaning noticeably more than before.

Bmc filter, Cat removed. exhaust changed.
This is off a eddy current dyno, add 15% or so to make it like a dynojet.


Some sweet lines.

you must pay really close attention to details. I've never even paid attention to the different lean angle while on the kickstand of my WR when I change my 21"/18" dirt wheels to my 17" front and back street wheels and there is a big difference in height between the two sets of wheels.

Mine sure leans over more when turning. Didn't notice when parked. Went from OEM HiSports to Pilot Power 2CT's
