I agree - I tried putting a 195 on my '94 but decided to do some measuring before I went to the trouble of mounting the tire. The swingarm has about 185 mm of clearance so a 195 mm tire is going to be a tight fit! I ended up with the Austone and it fits great. I've heard that they are no longer being shipped to the US, and the only distributor has about 10 left so if you want one you better order it quickly!
