Has anyone switched to a 19" rear wheel on their CR500 for mx? Or has anyone rode both 18" and 19" Rears on MX to know if there is any gain?

I've ridden with both.......the 500 is even more squirrelly with a 19". That kind of power needs the 18" tire so it has more sidewall flex for traction

twist wrist and go...

Dunno, I went to a 19" on my KX500 and felt a lot more comfortable. I hated the feel of sidewall flex, on the tall 18" tires.

I was always told the 18" rears were so that you could run a tall tire to avoid pinch flats in the desert.

Either way, it's still a Five-Fundred!!

Cheers!
