120/70 front tire?
First things first, I tried a quick search and did not yield the results I was looking for, so here goes...
Has anyone run a 120/70/17 front tire instead of the 110/70/17 size?
I ask because although there are plenty of good 110/70 tires, my track bike (zx6r) runs a more common 120/70 tire and I would like to mount the track take-offs on the 250 when it's time.
With all due respect, I'm not really looking for don't do that because the manual says not to. I'm looking for first-hand accounts by those that have done it before. Did it work well? Any issues? And finally, good or bad idea if you were to do it all over again?
P.S. in case you missed it, I ride track on my zx6r, so I prefer grippy tires to the stock IRC's.
TL; DR ... do you run a 120/70 front tire?
