    New question here. 2.35 Tire rub on Force swingarm ?

    Has anyone else experienced this? It is only on the non-drive side. I am running Maxxis Ignitor 2.35, which are actually a pretty narrow 2.35 tire. I have checked everything and there is really nothing I can find that could be contributing to this. I measure about 8mm clearance on the drive side and about 7mm on the non-drive side. I'm not concerned about paint but I don't like the shiny aluminum underneath, I don't want to wear a thin spot in the swingarm. I noticed the bike was like this when I bought it,so I hit it with some white paint, assuming someone previously had run too wide a tire, but the spot came back. Everything is tight, dropouts hubs etc.
    Sorry about pic quality but I think you can see what I'm talking about.

    This will be interesting I run Kenda 2.35 Nevegals and just picked up a 2011 Force. Once it gets here I will have to see if I need to run something else.
