Any one running a 215 and if so what mods. I got 20000 on my GYTT and plan on trying out this tire for the hell of it.

I only put a small flat spot on my swingarm, about 1/8" indent 1" long, just enough to flatten radius a little. I fit the tire at max pressure of 51 psi, and after deciding to run 27 psi, seems like I didn't even need the swingarm mod.

Considering yours is a lower profile 55, that should put the widest part of tire further back on swingarm that gets slightly wider to the rear. You may be fine without swingarm mod, as long as you have 1/16" side clearance, you're fine, tire only gets narrower when spinning. Good Luck Exclamation
