It barely fits with the eccentric all the way back. My tire warmer would rub on the inside of the swing arm, outside of that, no problem. Its only the 200 Dunlop's that don't fit the SSSA.

I run a 200/55 rear with plenty of clearance. Not sure which tire you are asking about, but here are some specs:

Fitment specs Rear: 200/55×17 KR449
Recommended Rim range (5.50-6.25), Best Rim (6.00)
Width (194mm/7.64″), Diameter (657mm/25.87″)

vs.

Fitment specs Rear: 190/60×17 D211GP-A
Recommended Rim range (5.50-6.00), Best Rim (5.50)
Width (191.3mm/7.54?), Diameter (657.4mm/25.92)

Fitment specs Rear: 190/60ZR17 GP-A PRO
Recommended Rim range (5.50-6.00), Best Rim (5.50)
Width (187mm/7.36"), Diameter (658mm/25.91")

As far as the GP-A211's go, the difference between the 190/60 and 190/55 is only 5 mm in radius. I currently have the 190/55 on my 1198 and I have plenty of clearance (about 15 mm at least). Granted, that's on the stand cold...when you're going 150 mph the clearance is reduced, but I think if you have at least 10 mm clearance on the stand at cold temp, you'll be fine.

The US N-tec slicks appear to be the same dimensions.

Sorry, I was talking about 200/60 not 200/55.

Edit: WOOPS I guess they don't make the 200/60 anymore, just the 195/65, which I don't think fits either.
It specs 1mm less in diameter than my 200/55 which is the smallest out of the 3 I listed. All will fit assuming the correct gearing to allow the eccentric to move as close to the 3 o'clock position(viewed from the chain side) as possible.

Fitment specs Rear: 195/65×17 KR108
Recommended Rim range (5.50-6.25), Best Rim (6.00),
Width (191mm/7.51″),
Diameter (656mm/25.83″)

Well, the older 200/60 didn't fit on my 848 or my friends 1098. Thats all I know. You couldn't fit the warmer on between the swing arm and the tire.

Not reviving this thread, just wanted to add some more detail. Search for the 190/60 tires for the 1x98 and most say it fits no problem. I just fit Dunlop's GPA Pro and noticed minimal clearance on my swingarm - about 6mm or just a hair more than the pencil stem nubs on new tires. I also checked my tire warmers and they fit fine unless I try to rotate the tire all the way around where the cord gets stuck. Not a problem since I'll never have the warmer in that position but it made me want to be certain. Wrote Dunlop to ask about tire growth and they said no more than 1-2mm with their race tires. I'll report back after I get to the track but I think I'm good

And this is with 14/39 gearing and 98 links. Didn't want to buy a new chain to get more clearance if I didn't have to, only had this one on for a year.
