View Full Version : What tire size is the best

I have a 130/60, I believe it is suppose to fit a gixer front. Will this tire fit the RS50 rear.

i think that running a tire that wide will negatively affect your ability to turn in. a wider tire will make the bike more stable, but harder to turn. a lower tire will give you a lower effective gearing ratio. these changes are small but it would probably make a big difference. but hey, the tire was cheap and if you can change it yourself, you might as well try it.

front tires have a different shape (profile) than back tires, and therefor a front on the rear or vice versa may make the bike feel really weird in corners. Fronts are usually more "round" whilst rears are more "arc'd"
Just a thought.

i went to get a new rear a few weeks ago, the stock size is damn hard to get a hold of and all the places i went to were saying like £70 to £90, my verdict is that a visable tred pattern is the tread limit for a moped so let it run bald.

should I even try to fit it on or should I just try to trade for a better stock size.
