I have a question. I just purchased a tire 120/70r17. I didnt realize that I ordered the wrong tire. Bike calls for a 110/70r17. I have a 130/70r17 on the rear. My question is will I be okay to ride with this setup? I'm still new to sportbike.

On my freebie EX, I grabbed a used 120/70 sitting at my brother's shop and swapped that on as there were no used 110/70's in the pile. It certainly fits without issue but I can't comment too much on handling characteristics as I've only done 10 miles. Still, it handled just fine in those 10 miles on some decent curves.

Thank you Saabnut and radiant.designer. Research I did most people said they put a bigger tire on back. I can't do that due to no $$ for it.
