1098 rear wheel and tire on the 848

Been looking into buying an 848

Seems pretty common that people are putting the 1098 wheel and rear tire on the bike

curious as to why?

doesn't the wider, and taller profile tire create more difficult lean/direction changes?

what are the pros and cons here?

This is how Kevin Cameron Puts it*:

"In tires, everything is compromise, so you must consider the whole picture, not just a single variable like size. The bigger the tire, the greater its rolling resistance and the lower the top speed. But a larger section tire may increase cornering grip. Balance against that the fact that a narrow, sharp tire profile handles quicker than does a fatter, round-profile tire. On the other hand, braking can be more powerful and more stable on the round tire.

In the end, it comes down to crazy, unanswerable questions like is it hotter in the city than it is in the summer? Would you rather have in-corner grip with slow, heavy turn-in and two miles per hour less top speed? Or quick turn-in, less speed at the apex but a bit more on the straight?"

*Sportbike Performance Handbook, 1998, p127

if you buy an 848 keep the stock 17x5.5 wheel and run the standard 180 rear tire size. You'll be happy with the stock size performance, one you reach national level rider status someone well be paying you to ride their bike with lots of trick stuff.

Not sure where you got your info...
The 1098 wheel does not fit on the 848. The axle is a different size.
