GYTT on an N

Post  Bull117 on Fri Sep 04, 2009 6:01 pm

I'm putting a GYTT 205/60-16 on an N Tues...from what I gather, no mods necessary to the fender or swing arm, but wanted to confirm while I have the rear wheel dropped.

Correct, from what I've seen posted, no mods required.

Bull, we just put that tire on an '05 N and it fit by a whisker. Had to deflate to install, but it fits and there's no rub.

Waiting to hear what you think Bull....be sure to give it about 300 miles to completely break in and you get used to it. Congrats.

Just got back for a quick 10 miler...been lots of rain here and work. No doubt different...but I'm a quick study and after a bit of feel...without a sense of overconfidence...have no doubt I will enjoy this new tire. I had it on a steep lateral slope which definitely gave a good tug. But as others mentioned...anticipation and practice. Running with 40 psi...about 2.5oz of dyno (I spilled the rest trying it get it in the itty bitty hole).

Thanks all for your advice and counsel...most appreciated to read and learn. And thanks Horse for the patch.

same size recommended the 205/60 or 205/65 but it might behoove you to trim the inner fender brace "ears" and the lower lip that sticks in towards the tire. You can try it out first and see if it rubs, if only one side you might just need to center the fender over the tire. They are all usually off to one side or the other, there's a bit of play in the mounting...

I just picked up a GYTT at the local Sears. My gosh the thing looks huge. If it weren't for threads like this I'd be sure I'd picked up the wrong size. I'm having it installed Saturday and I'm looking forward to trying it out.
