    Hi there

    First time posting but here we go, Currently own a te511 in sm trim but have been wanting to get a pair of new rims for a while now. i really wanna cram in a 5 inch rim with a 160 tire on the back (i have a 4.25 rim with a 150 on at the moment)

    Is it possible to fit with some clearance as i dont realy wanna have to deal with the chain chewing up the rear tire and if so are there any modifications i would have do to make this possible?

    Your advice will be gratefully appreciated :)

    Mine was a 2013 511 and it would not fit on mine 150 was the biggest. Even with the 150 it was super close. I ran warp nine and pilot powers

    Thanks for the reply i will definitely bear it in mind for my final decision, if i do bite the bullet and get a 5 inch rim ill probably turn this into a collection of me trying different ways of getting it in there haha

    They were fun bikes for sure but pretty finicky and yes that fmf was way too loud lol. Imo use Mobil 1 0w-40 euro oil and change often like 500 miles. Air cleaner doesn't really get dirty too fast. If you take smog junk off and put pipe on it you'll need to do tps reset and map 3. Those mods really wake that bike up but can cause some lean issues. Enjoy!!

    Hopefully gonna grab myself the akra full titanium exhaust some time in the near future combo that with a power commander and it should really come to life. I have had the bike for about two years now and put about 2000 miles on the clock and run the TC449 airbox cover with the extra holes luckily never had a problem with stalling or anything so far (fingers crossed it stays that way lol)

    Alpina rims should be here in a couple weeks, Im also gonna order a motomaster 320mm disc and adaptor tomorrow along with a 160/60/17 conti attack sm tire.
