    Default Bullet expert advice needed...

    Guys, I have a Bullet Electra Twinspark.

    As you know Electra has 19 inch (48.26 cm) rims and 90/90 tyres in the rear, which make the Tyre width 81 mm (8.1 cm) because of the aspect ratio.
    Total tyre size 56.36 cm

    As you know Electra has 18 inch (45.72 cm) rims and 130/80 tyres in the rear, which make the tire width 104 mm (10.4 cm) because of the aspect ratio.
    Total tyre size 56.16 cm

    You see I have 3 bikes Apache RTR 180, Pulsar 220 and Bullet Electra. And my father prefers driving only bullet. So, he made it quite clear that the ride height should not reduce, regardless whatever I do with it.

    So, I wanted to know will increase the width of the tyre will require any other changes in the bike. Any advice will be appreciated.

    Hi Atul,

    Your query is not very clear.

    The Electra Twinspark has OEM tyres that are 19 inch 3.25 inch width. You can change the rear tyre to 19 inch 3.5 inch width on the same rim. Any trye width greater than 3.5 inch is difficult to put onto the rear as the swing arm is not broad enough to accommodate it.

    If you are trying to inter change tyres between the 3 bikes that you own, I think it is not feasible to do it as both Pulsar and Apache RTR have tyre width that are more than 3.5 inch.
