Hi
The OEM spec or the rear tyre is 150/70 for a 15" rim. Would like to know if modifications need to be made for a 170/70 size on the same rim.

If no mod is required.. Would this be advisable.

Thanks
JS

It Will throw the Speedometer off. I put bigger tires on a truck. My Speedo read slower than I was going. And because of the Larger Diameter, Will lower the Rpms slightly. If you do it, Have a another bike ride with to check the Speedo. Or use a GPS.
