The project is slowly getting there
5' inch rear rim is really tight fit but sorted now.

Hi Petros,
do you have enough chain clearance with the 5" rim? Or does it scratch the tire?
regards

It is very tight fit , but no does not touch at all with some limited
space for chain slag too.
I've read that the Conti Attack is very narow for this reason choosed these.
Also these rubbers are good and sticky too.

So if you ask I would point you to those if you go with 5 inch rim.

Once completed will take a full walk arround video.

If your chain guide at front pivot on the swing arm is new at would help the chain not hit the tyre. At least that's how it works on My FS570 warn guide help chew up My rear tyre replace it all good. Good luck bike is looking Great. New chain and sprocket would be good to.

If you have a problem with the chain chunking the tyre, a small length of light aluminium angle, say 50 X 50 with a piece of plastic kitchen chopping board attached to it is a nice, inexpensive fix. Just fit it to the top of the swing arm by drilling/ tapping a couple of new bolt holes.

NB will need a 6 pack of beer to accomplish this task and if mother can look after the kids, you'll do it in half the time too

Hi Guys,
many thanks for your ideas. I have a Michelin tyre on my motard rim but it needs to be replaced anyway - I'll try the Conti next. My idea was to spoke the wheel a bit to the left (5mm) because there is space - some guys from the german Husaberg Forum did this and it performed well - it can't be noticed during riding.
cheers
Michael

Try out the conti Attack and you will be very pleased.
It is also a very sticky rubber which is what we are seeking for.

Getting your wheel spoked to the left is not a good solution ,
even if you do not feel it or notice it the rear wheel is actually miss placed and not in the correct allignment which in case of track use you will surely notice that rear is off.
