    Hi

    Getting to 16000 km on the Daelim VJF tyres will probably be over at 18-20k.

    Looking around for around for reasonably priced, longish lasting conservative tyres noticed that the back 140/60-17 seems non existent, front 110/70-17 is common, I have kinda settled on Bridgestone BT45 from the reviews I read.

    The question I have (excuse me if it a dumb one) but will using a 140/70-17 Back and 110/70-17 Front cause in issues with profile raise at the rear over the old 140/60-17.

    I mainly commute about 1100 km per month, I by no means drag pegs but I think the above will be an improvement over the Swallow tyres fitted although they have never let me down even in 100-200 mil rain in 1 hour we get at times here in Coffs Harbour area.

    Any input would be muchly appreciated thanks :)

    should not be a problem except clearance so measure existing tyre to closest guard contact and add 10 mm.

    Hey gw
    Think your Bridgestones are an excellent choice, had them on my cbr1100 and acheived great mileage. Having said that the same could be said for the Michelin Pilot2 Ihad on my sv650, honestly couldn't wear them out.
    One thing to contemplate is this, ask for the best deal on whatever you choose and make sure the price includes fitting and balancing, you don't want any nasty surprises. Let us know how you go!

    around newcastle they will fit new tyres free IF you take the wheel in or otherwise 25 bucks.
