    Yes it will. You may have to change your suspension settings a little since it is a 190/55/17 vs 190/50/17. It should be there today or tomorrow at the latest.

    Ok thanks, I know my gearing will be off, may have to go up a tooth. But what kind of changes will I have to make suspension. More/less rebound??? Compression??? I'm running a revalve.

    The Daytona tires I am talking about aren't made that way. The bikes put so much heat into the tires going around the NASCAR banking that they use a really hard compound on the left side of the tires only. The center and right side of the tire are also fairly hard, but they are softer than the left side. Tires made like this are especially unsuited for drag racing.

    Those are either the A-B or C compounds that only licensed Road race dealers can get. They are all dual compound and the compounds can be placed in many different combinations on the tire. The D is a single compound.
