140 tire in Darmah swingarm

Post by DanaL » Fri Apr 20, 2018 1:35 pm

Hey all,
Building a Darmah and have EPM 3.75" rear wheel. Does anyone KNOW if a 140 tire will fit the Darmah swingarm. Guesses or telling me to buy the tire and try it are not useful answers. Answers based on experience are helpful. Thanks and regards,

D.L.

I've had a 140/70-18 Michelin TV on a 3.50 Akront in my Darmah.
And later a 160/60-16 on a 4.25 Montjuic Akront but here I had to modify the carrier and sprocket for a few mm to avoid chain-tire contact.

have fun

Good info Ducadini. That is the kind of response I needed. I have the 3.75" EPM wheel so I'll most likely use the 140mm size tire as that is the ideal for rim width. Nice to know I can use the stock swing arm.

Thanks and regards,
