Anybody tried a 180/55 tyre on the back yet? My last set i got Metz m7rrs in 190/55 and loved them, but on my last bike ('03 z1000) it was set up to run 190 but I always preferred a 180/55, as it seemed to make tip in faster and lighter handling. Im just about to order my next set and am thinking about giving it a go. Any reason why this wouldn't work on the gixxus?

narrow is quicker tip in, yep , sometimes wider is fashion to suit buyers perception of ,"looks tough" if your supplier is happy to fit them to your rims , do it.:nerd:
