when i park my bike up next to my mates r1 the r1's rear tyre looks so much wider and would make the 2006 r6 look so much sweeter.
ive read up on this and some say its a good mod and some say its not so good but i would like to give it a go and see. any pic's of an r6 wearing a 190 rear.

I understand that it totally changes the way your bike handles, and not in a good way.
Depends what 190 tire you go to. I switched my last trackday and love the way it handles. I can get on the gas way earlier coming out of the turn without spinning up the rear and it turns in faster. Sorry, no camera though.

If you put a 190 on the R6, it still won't be as wide as a 190 on an R1. The wheel is narrower on the R6, and it will pinch the 190 down so it will only be a couple of millimeters wider than a 180.
