Hi there! Has anyone tried a 120/60 front tire (instead if the stock 120/70)? I ride on Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interacts. I love the swoopy feel the rounded-profile tyres give me, however, I'd like the bike to swoop a little more quickly. My last three bikes (R6, F2, FZR 600) all had Metzeler (M3 or Racetec) 120/60 front tyres on them and cornered wonderfully. My idea is that the /60 profile will make the bike more flickable than the /70 series tyre because the shorter tyre will slightly alter the steering geometery making the front end feel lighter; thus, swooping more quicker or feeling lighter if you will. Does anyone have some words of wisdom about this subject matter? Smiles, ~e
