I put a 190/55 on my 04 about 2 weeks ago. I didn't intend to switch from 50's, but I got such a great deal on some race takeoffs, I couldn't pass it up.
I really like the handling and the way it falls into corners. I'm still getting used to it, but I think I'll have a hard time switching back to 50's after this.
The only fitment issue for me was when I took my kid for a ride. My license plate is up under the the passenger foot pegs and the tire rubbed on the bottom of the plate with the extra weight. The tire is slightly closer to the hugger and the swingarm under the hugger. I can see where it might be too close if I had a new, tight chain and had to adjust the wheel a little forward.
