You'll need to change the rim to get that fat safely. Definitely do-able with a rim change. Hav a look on one of the Kat forums and u should find what rim'll be a str8 fit.

Can i put a bigger than stock tire on my 2006 suzuki gxs600f katana

By bigger I assume you mean wider. I would not run any size tire on a motorcycle the wheels were not designed for. An oversized tire will be too wide, and as result will not have the profile it was designed for. It will also negatively affect your handling, making the bike harder to lean into turns.

I want to mount wider rear tyre on 1991 gsxf 600 , like 180 or 190 r17, is it possible ? do i need another swingarm?

anything is possible given time and money, first is the space betwee the swing arm and the tire, then the tire size to rim, and then tire space to chain, talk to a speed shop

Hi. Im have a 1991 cbr 600 with a bridgestone battlax 0120 160/17 on the back. Would it be ok to put a battlax 121 170/ 17 on in its place. Would it be safe enough. Could you also tell me how much oil goes...

I would stick with the original tire size. I have a 1985 Honda Interceptor that when I got a new rear tire, stuck with the same tire size. You'll be happier that way.

lol. My fork seal was bad from day 1 and had that done too, so today the fork seal is alright.

I don't know exactly how much it takes for your cbr, but it's in the neighborhood of a quart or so, I would think. The spec. is probably listed somewhere on website or somewhere else.

Bigger tire size for a 1997 honda 600 f3

Stock is a 160/60ZR17. I run a 170/60ZR17 with no issues. That is as wide as you can go on the rear without major modification to the swingarm or rubbing the stock arm.
