Re: will i be ok with 190/60/17?
I don't know about the clearance issues, you're probably looking close to 8-10mm taller. So essentially it would be similar to doing a tail lift, I'm assuming here.
This is what manufacturers say are the advantages to lifting the tail. I read a few forums and the general consensus seemed to be that 6-8mm was the best.
+ better handling
+ better feedback from rear suspension
+ more grip on the rear wheel
+ more weight on the front wheel
+ less kickback
+ much better look with raised tail
+ tested and recommended by international motorcycle journalists
+ race proven
if the tires are free ,or close to it, try them out. Then give us a write up for future reference.
