Alright getting the shink put on now, just heard what a slip on would sound like on my bike, and the you tube videos do not do them justice, that ******************** is ear deafening.

Why in the world would you put a smaller tire on the bike? Never go smaller tires than recommended on anything, ever.

Showdown the stock tire is a 140/70/17 i wouldn't call that a smaller tire, i actually have more leaning room considering the tire has a thinner profile. The shinko is also rounder than the stock irc and has a ton more tread, rolling on it definitely feels a lot better and my turns are a lot cleaner. Now if i had gone to something say a 130/60/17 then i would be like wtf. But just a 10% difference in height isn't enough to call it a smaller tire. I will post pics tomorrow

Thanks, I look forward to your opinion/review of the tire and even a couple pics. I am at 7,700 miles and with winter coming on I really need a new rear tire. The one you describe is one of the options I was looking at.

i like the tread,looks like an all weather tire.
how many miles did you get from the stock-if you wore it down?

Squid tech advice, lol. My 130/70-17 Pirelli Sport Demon is running beautifully 3000 miles later, thank you.

I haven't been on ladson road in a while, like 4-5 months. But my rookie self only checked the tire pressure every month once or twice. :-) but it harley walled around 8300 but now i have learned to check my TP every two days. Yea i don't know what the hell that guy was talking about to never go smaller, even the new ninja 250 comes with a 130/70/17 stock and runs fine. The biggest tire I would go is a 150/60/17 and thats pushing it for the width and the motor stress.
