Even I have seen 100/90 18" on the Passion Plus..

I think even 110/90 18" can be fitted.

yes 100/90 x18 are the ones on the cbz's and pulsars.

for a more wider tyre you need to do some modifications.

that depends on what he plans to use the bike for.

If you are going to stick it in your drawing room and stare at how good the bike looks ALL DAY LONG, then I suggest you get some Mickey Thomson drag slicks....best looking tyres in the world....some modifications required

there is no use fitting such wide tyres on the passion. it wil just rob it of its 7odd bhp.

anyways removing the chain cover may give you enough space to fit in even a 120/90 tyre at the rear.

for fitting such a wide tyre, its advisable to put a new wider rim too

there is no use modifying passion at All. LOL!

wat can a 100cc 7odd bhp passion do with such a heavy tyre.

FE will fall around 5kmpl and top speed will fall around 8-10 kmph.

Never understood these kinda guys...

Why do u need a wider tyre..??
Ur bike makes a measly 7bhp. And u still wanna fit wider tyres...???

Hah.

My 223cc city commuter makes only 17bhp and i still can't dare of thinking a wider tyre can the stock ones.
Wonder wut u want..??

I get it.

Maybe he's a new rider and wider tyres will help him balance the bike better.
Just like helper wheels on kids cycles...eh mate..??

Ok enough of levity...we need to cut you some slack here...If you really want improved grip just go for 3.00x18 Zappers....They're no good in the wet though, be warned....Anything bigger, and all your bike will do is go slower. Period.

dude, u can get the MRF Zapper Y (Eliminator) tyre for the bike. You would also have to get a new rim for that. You can also get various tubeless tyres too. Check out a shop near Car Palace in palayam. You'll get almost all bike parts there

And on the otherside...it'll seriously affect your bike's top speed and acceleration, and ofcourse the FE

Default thanks !!

hehehe thanks for the advice guys... I liked the digs by scaryskull.
The real reason is I do lotsa biking on hi-ways with friends and was just wondering whether a bit wider tyres would improve sudden braking, and on wet raods. As you know HH have a tendency to skid... but I think I'd rather wait cos I wouldn't want the measly 7 horses to get sick

I like this guy.
He took the sarcasm in his stride....

U could try, if u want, a 100/90 zapper...
but anything wider than that and I'll come back to bite u.. LOL
