you could but it would alter the handling of the bike when going into corners, I would stick with the 180 personally.

bikes are designed to work best with the tire size they come with.

Can you put it on? Yes. Should you? Probably not. There's really no reason to install a wider tire.

It's more expensive and will hurt the bike's handling.

Wider Tires will in most case's prevent the bike from turning quick, you know corner after corner flickability....you will lose that on a 190 tire. Thats why the FZR's are considered to be very flickable bikes because they come standard with a 140 I believe rear tire. I gotta double check that.

So in conclusion you sacrifice a less agressive looking/more usefull thinner rear tire to go with a wider more aggressive looking/waste of rubber tire, and for what?

But its up to you...Like these guys said earlier I'm sure it would fit, but I don't know how it would ride....

Edit* Went on FZR Archives.com said 140 so I guess they are right....

Thanks to you all, the only reason im doing this is the tire was a free metezler me z3. It will be a total burn out and burn off mess around tire. Trying to learn the whole grabbing the front brake and do slow circles while burning out. Starting to get the hang of it. THANKS
