    This is the tallboy v3 specs from their bike archive... Looks like 180mm is Max recommended.

    Thanks, tried to put on the 200mm and seems to be fine with adequate clearance, any reason why it should be max 180mm?

    Mine came with a 180 and I put a 160 on it.
    Do the math.

    Sometimes, max rotor diameter is spec'ed to limit forces of torque. This more common for forks, but I have seen it for rear brakes as well. Probably to limit torque on mounting flanges.
