I must wore out my stock tire at about 4100 miles. Today I got the only tire that the shop had that was close to the correct size. It is a 130 90 16 dunlop gt 501. I like the tire however it is quite a bit taller than the stock size so it dropped my rpms down from 8000 at 65 to around 7500. I'm not sure how I will like the change because the bike seems a bit slower to 60 yet the rpm drop might give me better highway fuel economy. What do you guys think about this?
I also am going to need a new front tire because my front tire is also showing signs of wear. What tire size do you think would go with the tall sticky dunlop gt 501 that I have in the back?
