i wanted to go to a bigger tire but the dang service tech in h and w honda in marshall texas kept saying that he personally would not put a wider tire on it. i sat there and did a stare down with him about bigger tire, im new to ridding, i told him bunch of you guys on this forum have wider tires. he said forums are junk. and he would not even try to find me a wider tire. i was pressed with time so i said forget it and just go with the 210.. and in pro rating it. i wonder if i call now and ask if they will still do that if they even do that would they go back and do it. i doubt it. being the way he was about what i purchased.
May I suggest a new shop for your bike to be serviced at??!! That guy was a total jacka$$ about it. And yes, may of the people on here do have 240 and 250 rear tires. Sounds like he was just lazy, and yes, the larger tires will squeeze on our stock rims. If push comes to shove, are you willing to get the larger tire, and sell the stock 210 you have on it now?? If you do this, try not to ride too much at all...it would be better if you didn't ride at all, save to get the tire replaced. This will help to preserve the 210 for later selling on ebay, craigslist, etc. Good luck getting the guy to refund the tire, or put this expense toward a new 250, and refunding the difference, if any.
