Default Rear tire

I see allot of people upgrade to a 240 rear tire but is it possible to downsize to a 200? Way more options and better pricing at this size and I would imagine better in the turns.

I'm sure it's possible, better in turns I doubt. I actually have better control with my 240 than I did with stock. I ride mostly 2 up, except daily work commute. It would also make your Speedo off more than the stock 5mph that most of us have experienced. Going to a 240 put me within 1mph for me, according to my GPS speed. Not that I care to much about the Speedo but it's nice to know how fast you are going when u pass up a unmarked sitting clocking you. ( Not that I have ever done this ). I also imagine it would lower the bike about 3/4" which lowering for me is a no-no. If anything Is prefer raising to avoid scraping of pegs/boards. There is about 8 options in 240 sizes, same in 210 stock sizes, I have gone threw 3 different brands, and now I am running the Avon front and rear. Worst tires for me grip wise, wear wise was the Stock Bridgestone. Then I had two Shinko rears and one Shinko front, like them but they didn't last much more than the stock tire 6000-7000 miles. Research and great reviews from this forum lead me to try Avon Cobra (which I think is not made anymore it's a different name). The specs of the tire are far superior to anything else I had run, deepest tread depth, great semi soft compound, super sticky on street, great handling. I will probably stick with Avon brand next season, I run the Pittsburgh Roads and they suck for tire wear. Check out M&M Leather Shop and Parts out on Rt.30 https://www.mmleatheronline.com/ close to Greensburg, they have a lower level of parts for all makes models with racks of tires to choose from, and prices are great. They even carry the Kuryakyn parts, mustang seats, really most accessories you need. Even aftermarket rims.

Possible- yes, but will not be better in turns. 200 Tire will have a flatter arch on road than the 210. Most everyone goes with 240 so that it will have better arch than 210 and thus better handling.

PS. Metzler and Michelin have been my favorite over Bridgestone, Avon, and Shinko
