None that I saw. The only thing that could be an issue for some is trying to get the wheel back in with that stock mudflap. One of the first things I did was cut off the big reflector part of the flap when I got the bike.....and it's STILL a tight squeeze getting that tire in there. I'd say you'd need to put a piece of plywood or something under the center stand before lifting it up to get that extra space. As far as other clearances I had no issues. Tire doesn't look "squeezed" either....still has a very nice profile. You can tell it's bigger as well from the back.
