Would it be OK to replace the front tire with a 150 instead of the stock size 130?

Are there any safety problems there?

The only 150 I found is a 150/80 16, is this the tire your looking at? No safety issue problems, but the aspect ratio means the tire is 20mm wider. I don't see where there would be any clerance problems as it's only 10mm wider on each side. Hope this helps you out.

Might be why sport bike riders ride wheelies all the time. Saves miles on the odometer. Better for resale. LOL

I seem to recall a few years ago my safety instructor telling me to keep my head up and eyes looking around - not down. So now I'm finding that I'm supposed to look at the speedometer? :shock:

Cheers!
