Re: Tyres

I ride 190/55/17's on my R6. The turn in is slight harder but I can get way more lean angle and drive out of the corners with it. I love it, i'll probably stick with 190/55's

Re: Tyres

It will fit just make sure you have a long enough chain to keep the spacing between the swing arm and the tire because the tire will grow some at speed and rub if you don't have enough clearance. (This happened to me last time I went to the track)

Blue because it is faster.

The newer tires especially the Dunlop 209GP NTEC's dont have the issue with growing.
