Thanks again. i am looking more into this for my Versys even though I am about to sell her. I am 6'4" and even with the bar risers I am hunch over while standing up. A quick question for Fast Eddie; Most of the tires in the size you are using are rear tires. Is there anything I should be aware of or look for (ie tread pattern differences) before buying a rear tire to stick on the front.FWIW - I have a 130/80x17 front on my '08, and its overall diameter is about the same as that of a 120/70x19, BUT I can't find that info on the 'Net at this time.
