I'm interested in fitting a 190/55 rear tyre, rather than the 190/50 recommended in the Shiver manual. However, I'm concerned whether the calibration process in the dashboard menu will work properly. Does anyone have any input on this?

I know the 190/55 size is recommended for the Caponord, for example, so it's unclear why it's not listed as an alternative for the Shiver 900.

I think an Austrian review mentioned that you just push the bike a few feet and the ECU counts the pulses off each wheel to get an idea of their relative circumferences. It's designed precisely to account for different tyre sizes. Such a great idea.

I have a 190/55 on my 750, it works well but the M7RR has quite an aggressive profile so I think I'll try the 190/50 next.
