Broader tyres for L 535
  • Broader tyres for L 535

    created by: ajay12:00 AMMon, July 12, 2004
  • I would like to go for a wider rear tyre for my Lightning 535 preferably 140 X 70 X 18. I know that certain modifications are to done on the swingarm. But I'm afraid of the overall ratio and the maximum speed. Is there anyone with the same modifications done on any Enfield? Then, you are the right hero, I'm looking for!

  • I have changed my rear tyre by 190x60x15 Duro on my TB. What i have noticed so far is that pick up has reduced a little bit but the top speed is still the same. If you r going for a bigger tyre then please make sure that the alingment is right. I am still working on it and will let you know

    Thanks for your message. I've successfully done the task there by fitting a 130 X 90 X 18 Duro. With this modification, everything is perfect.
