Hello, I am replacing the rear tire on my brothers 08 Versys. He just bought it used. What is on the rear now is a Bridgestone BT-021. I am going to replace it with the BT-023. The owners manual shows the stock size as a 160/60-17 It has a 160/70-17 on it right now. The difference in price is $7.00. Which tire size should I go with and why.
On a side note I just spent a lot of time reading lots of posts here on tires. I found lots of good info!

I have run every size on our V (including a 180/55) and since I live 30 minutes from the Dragon it is my test track. My favorite rear for all out sport riding is a 170 but The Girl prefers the stock 160/60 all of the time and I prefer the stock size the majority of the time.
My advice would be stick to stock and the 023 rear and S20 front is magic on the V.
