I was wondering if anyone runs a smaller tire on their xmr? Like a 27". If so, how to you like it?

I run a 27 when I am going to be on hard pack or a lot of rocks. I love the way it rides and handles, acceleration is exhilarating, but the governor kicks in quick.

Running a smaller tire will throw the speedo off - and as Fishkill says, make the speed limiter come in sooner - as it should be active at 65mph on the speedo, no matter your true speed. It will also cause your ACS suspension to drop at 35mph on the speedo, no matter your true speed.

You can use a SpeedoHealer to re-calibrate the speed sensor's signal to report true speed for the new tires - which will put Speed Limiter and ACS suspension drop back to stock .... It can also be used to defeat both of those.

Thank for the input. I was thinking about running 27" or 28" tires, trying to broaden my options a little.
