Could anyone tell me what the clearance should be between the rear tyre and swingarm on a 97 se?? Think tyre may be rubbing swingarm. Any ideas how this could happen???

I reckon about 10mm each side, I can get a little finger tip in the gap. Did someone fit a fatter tyre? If not, is your tyre old? Sometime old tyres belly outwards (cup) and rub off the swingarm.

Tire clearences can vary with manufacturers. However, the tire should never touch the swing arm if it is the correct size.. Designs differ, but the size specs do not.

If your tire is touching the swing arm, it is possible,as Enlightened stated, that the sidewall has a slipped latteral belt...

The more likely cause is worn swing arm bushings, under inflated tire, frame misalignment, incorrect wheel, wornwheel bearingsor a bent axle...

This should be corrected asap before disaster strikes... :action:
