Lots of posts regards this but also loads of misinformation.

What is the largest tyre I can fit on the stock rear wheel on my NRS? And any advice on the brand. Cheers in advance. Vik

I use Metzler ME888
I wouldn't go bigger then a 260...yes people put on a 280 but it really pinches the tire and a 280 isn't meant for our stock width rim. If you want a 280 there are proper kits out there for it. Lots of old posts on this topic...

I have the Avon Cobra Chrome 260 on my '07 DX. Worked well and looks great.

I put an Avon Cobra Chrome AV92 Rear Motorcycle Tire 250/40R-18 (81V) Black Wall on my 08 DX last summer. I did a lot of research to find out how big I could go and that’s why I went with the 50. It fills up the space in the well pretty good, so I personally wouldn’t be comfortable going any bigger. Good luck.

Does a bigger tire make it harder to turn?
Not much of a difference between 240 and 260 IMO.
I think the thing here with 260 tire on rw is more like a mental thing.
Wider tire on a stock rim will be a bit wider and more round on profile when talking about Avons. I put the 260 tire on stock rear and haven’t noticed any difference on performance. There is still 5mm clearance to belt and 240 had about the same.
