Biggest rear tire I can on GSXR 750

Right now I am running a 190/50/ZR17 rear tire on my 98 SRAD 750. My question is what is the biggest size rear tire I can run WITHOUT changing the stock swing arm. Right now I have a 9 inch extension on the swing arm. Thanks

oh wow really that big? So I can get a 240 with the stock swing arm? What else will I have to get besides the wheel to fit the tire?

My bad, I forgot about the post where I claimed I have the best lines ever. My avatar pic was taken in Deals Gap, not in Florida. Actually I don't even live in Florida yet. I was stationed in KY before coming here to Korea and yes, they do have some sweet curves.

well if it's the SRAD gixxer 750 I'd say go with a 210...otherwise you'd run a 180
