Time for a new rear tire on my 2010 MP3 500. I am looking at the lower profile tires 140-150/60/14 to lower the bike. I have the lowering links on the bike. Will it be too low-and what will the problems be? How much lower is the 60 profile tire? The links can be removed if the tire lowers the bike enough--- thanks Jim

A tire with a 140/60 profile will allow your scooter to be 7mm lower. If you had a tire with a profile of 140 \ 70 ...

I use the the 140/60 on my mp3 500. it lowers rear enough (also had one inch lower shock brackets) so that center stand clearance becomes a problem. I wouldnt recommend it for that reason. I otherwise love what the tire size did for the performance of bike. and I like to push hard in corners so I converted bike to use side stand.
