I put the PCS lowering kit on my Raider and with the stock tire I never had any trouble. It lasted about 8,000 miles. I then put a Dunlop 240 on and that is where the trouble started. Every time I hit a good bump the tire hit the fender well. I hated it so much because the tire was alot taller and raised my bike back to almost stock. Took it off and put a stock metz back on and the problem went away. I am only 230 pounds and it happened with just me on the bike, nevermind when I had my wife on the back. I am very happy with the stock tire and they last for a long time. Yamaha put a 210 on the bike for a reason. It is fun to try something different though it was a waste of money for me.
