Husaberg FS650 wider singarm and tyre?

Hi

Anyone has experience with putting wider swingarm 5,5" wheel and 180 rear tyre? It is possible to do , but the chain will not go very straight as the frame blocks it from going more out to the side. Can the chain be a bit "bent" or would that be catastrophic?😆. Only thinking this because it would look cool and I have time to do it, and have quite a lot of extra power so a wider tyre would be nice Been looking at custom built swingarms, but I figured out some that could fit with a little easy work - except have to switch sides for mount brackets to caliper and chain guard.
Thanks!

and its so technical because initiallyb it'll ruin his handling and the offset of his TCs will be a mile out causing him to fall off a lot till he gets it right.

he'll need nearly the KTM 20 or the Husaberg 22 and then it won't drop on its side.

Noted�� What I have been thinking if today as well Taffy, that the offset will be wrong if the chain iis not to be forced to the side.. So I rest my dream I think��
Q - What tyres is fitted to the Husaberg´s with 5,5" rear wheel? 160?
Thanks!

"offset" is the offset of the triple clamps - your TCs.

when you'er leaning over, the rear of the bike will be 10mm further from the track because of the rear tyre width. that means that a different part of the front tyre will be on the track. if you are not careful, the bike will try and climb the track or drift away and you change the TCs and then it'll tuck in instead and you'll fall off a lot.

Can I bother you guys again with more hub / wheel - rear width questions?
I feel I have read that Husaberg 650 has been ridden private and in races with 5,5”
Rear wheel ☺️( and 160 tyre so tracktion will be optimal) ??
Question is really - can I re-spoke a rear wheel with a narrower hub to fit husa swing arm? If 5,5 cool - but 5 “ looks sweet as well.
Asking this since I have been looking long at the Alpina Carbon Matrix wheels - and have found different ones for sale - but I assume with hubs for TM and KTM / Husky etc they are to wide for my 650? And problems with re-Spoking rear wheel aworh smaller hub - Preferably carbon wheel ..
thanks!! ������
