Hi all, Can anyone shed some light for me? I have been told that I maybe able to fit a different size rear tyre to my bike. The book says that I need a 170/60/17, I have been told that I could fit a 180/60. Is this OK? If it is what affect will it have on the bike, if any?

OK ignore this comment, just had a look at tyre sizes and I dont think that such a tyre is out there.So much for phoning the professionals for advice. Muppets.
The rolling diameter will be ever so slightly smaller but shouldn't make much difference.
This is the commonest rear tyre size on the planet - you will have a much wider choice of tyre makes/models.
You just need to check the extra 5mm clearance is available each side of the tyre.
