Been getting PMs asking about where to get these smaller CTs. Since I have a tire guy that has no problem getting them, I'll throw myself on the fire again.;) If you want one, I'll get it for you and ship it to you.

It's my understanding they retail for over 200 bucks but my guy is giving me a deal because I told him I would be buying a few. Already shipped eight of them.

Here the deal: 200 dollars shipped to your door. Would prefer certified funds, like a money order, bank check, bank money order, etc but a personal check is fine too.

It usually takes 3 business days to get it and I'll ship within a couple days after picking it up, via 3-day ground.

Just PM me the address where you want it to go. When funds are received, I'll order.

How much will this affect speedo (I have no GPS), and will it rub the swing arm?

Forgive me for asking it was probably mentioned before, but what is the weight rating on that tire?

TIA

It will probably make your stock speedo show 1-2 mph higher than you're actually going.

I had a 195x55 on mine for a while and it made the speedo off by 8 mph at 70

I would assume about the same with the 175x60 - about 10% error.
A 205x60 gets it perfect but you have to extend the centerstand and kick stand 1/2" to compensate for the height.

This tire just touches the front right corner of the swing arm for the first 300 miles or so then it's fine.

??
I have different results with 195x55...
With the original MT, the speedo was off by 3-4 mph at 70
... now, with the 195x55 Dunlop WinterSport car tire,
the speedo is only off by 2-3 mph at 70.

My stock MT and the 195/55 CT both showed 5 mph fast. At 70 mph on speedo, the GPS shows 65 mph :roll: !

I need to correct this. I meant to say 1-2 mph faster than what the speedo shows now. In other words: if you're off by 4 now, you might be 5-6 off afterward.
