I wouldn't call it squid advice... I've worked around tires for years, more specifically 4 wheel vehicles but I know the negative side affects smaller tires have for those, and I personally wouldn't risk it on my bike. So I guess if you want to throw around the term squid very loosely then good for you.

I wouldn't call it anything, everyone has there own opinion but you must understand this bike was designed for a 140 width tire, regardless of 70 or 60 a 140 is fine, now a 130 is not something I want to look into because I saw that on a ninja and that looks to small for me. But I got the 60 because it was a lot more rounder than the 70 stock IRC. This tire has already given better cornering as well. Also 4 wheel atv's do not have to worry about surface area for leaning. Going smaller with an ATV tire is going to have a much different effect than doing the same on a 2 wheel motorcycle.

They are at the bottom of the barrel along with Dunlop Arrowstacks.
Hyosungs come with Shonkyos.

But one thing in their favour they will never wear out lol.

Get the IRC's or Pirelli sport demon for high mileage, least they have a little bit of grip.

I'm all for experimentation, but I'm a little skittish about tire size. I like to stick as close to stock as possible. If you squeeze a wider tire onto a stock rim, it'll fit, but it changes the handling characteristics of the bike. Most popular is putting a 190 where a 180 came from the factory. I was compelled to do this once due to availability issues at my shop. The bigger 190 sure looked butch, but it was a mite resistant to dropping into corners (this on my FZ1.) Going back to a 180 made it feel properly sporty again.

I'll be interested to hear a comparison of the handling with the stock CBR's 140mm vs the much more available 150.

What are you running for your front tire?

I had a pair on one of my old bikes. They are hard and last a very long time. Not too sticky, but the compound may have changed since I tried them. Be careful until you get used to the grip level.

Journalists around the world had no probs with the IRC's I even tracked them and they were very predictable with good feel, even while sliding.

Try your Shinkos, you'll see, but fitting shinkos because IRC's are not good enough is confusing me.
Unless they ghave released a new softer model?

Yeah, kind of what I thought... mismatched tires on a motorcycle are not a good idea. Different rubber compounds = different levels of grip. Seriously, I'd get that sorted out.
