Just curious as to whether anybody has replaced the rear 150/70 on the Vee2 with a 160/60 or 170/60? The 170 has the closest rolling circumference to the standard tyre and there looks to be enough room in the swingarm. Thoughts??

Rim size is the issue. Ideal rim size for a 150 is 4.0 inch, a 160 is 4.5 and a 170 is 5.0. Fairly low profile tires DO NOT respond well to being squeezed on to narrow wheel. The tire factory designed profile goes to hell. Handling suffers big time.

Thanks for the feedback. Rim size was my only doubt, but now confirmed. Cheers!
