Like shu says, 1/2" only, but helped me. I also fitted a longer shock and forks and taller seat and lower footpegs. I was after ground clearance and a size of tyre that is easier to find outback here, and one that the XRs and KTMs I'm travelling with will have when we head out next month. It also changes the gearing, roughly equivalent to a 16t cs from the stock 15, or an extra 3 teeth up back.
