New comer

Hi everybody i am new here. I have had my bike now for 14 months and have done 22,500 kms on it. I have done a few mods on my bike. Such as putting a bigger rear wheel on. Fitted a 180 tyre, Fuel controller. Lowered the front down 2.5 inch. Stiffened up the front shocks. My future mods will be changing the front wheel and fitting twin disc. And fitting stage 2 cams. And i might be painting my bike in the Repsol colour scheme.

welcome!
suppose you can swap the front end with 650f.
in the last pic, the tyre doesn't look any wider?

It's looks way wider than stock. I put a 180 tyre because i could not fit a 190 on. lol The Cbr 500 is a very light bike and under hard braking my ABS was coming in to often, so by putting a bigger wheel and tyre that solved that problem. plus the bigger tyre does look better too. It has slightly made my bike slower off the start and 10kms off my top speed. But i still have a on the road top speed of 205kms with the fuel controller.

I thought ABS has a problem when you change tire diameters.
