I'm just off my restrictions and buying a 65,000km 1994 VFR750. Needs new tyres. I read the complete 'touring tyres on sports bikes' thread, and gathered that Michelin Pilot Road 2's are a safe bet, given that my bike is a sports tourer, and I am not a 10 10ths kind of rider. (mostly freeway and suburban commute too and from work. Weekend scratching, but never fully committed. ) My question relates to sizes. The OEM's are 120/70-ZR17 170/60-ZR17. Can I expect any benefit going to wider tyres? What is the effect of wider tyres? Some people seem to think that wider is better so long as it doesn't rub...? Please offer your opinions on which tyres to use for my bike, and what sizes are best. Thankyou!
