    55 makes quite a bit of difference on turn in - you'll either love it, or hate it.

    As in making it drop in quicker? If so I think I'd like thst a lot.
    Tbf any tyre is going tk make it turn it loads quicker atm as the current ones are both square and bald 🙈🙈

    Fitted them earlier today. Definitely have a different feel to them. Was very odd to begin with, almost like the font end was on a track/rail but got used to it fairly quickly.
    Did a quick 50 miles to break them in, hopefully happy miles from now on  :820:

    The tyres have arrived today but they've sent me the slight wrong size for the rear 🙈 I ordered 190/50/17 but they've sent 190/55/17.... im going to fit them anyway as I can't be bothered to wait for the return but I'm guessing it won't make much difference to the bike anyway?

    Maybe it will work for you. But I'm interested to see the picture of this modification  :062:
