smaller front tyre

Post by downboysit » Sun Feb 23, 2014 10:02 pm

so i was chatting with a riding mate the other day and he said he wants to put a narrower front tyre on his bike because the chicken strips were still quite wide compared to almost none on his rear. his theory was was stretching a 110 (instead of a 120) across the rim would give a wider contact patch and more even tyre wear, possibly less sidewall flex.

anyone tried it?
any problems doing this?
i know people get nervous changing oem fitments but just because it came from the factory doesnt mean its perfect- its why we do all these mods after all.
on smt of course it could put our speedo's out
