Thanks... for some reason I had a 120/60 on it.. and I noticed in the book it said 120/70... don't remember a reason for going with a smaller profile, so it must have been a goof up at the shop that I never noticed.... what kind of handling difference would this make?

the tire size is difference is going to be 12mm. so in effect you will be raising your front end up just over a quater inch.

not sure about the R6 geometery as the where the sweet spot is, but in general, lowerint hte front makes it turn quicket and raiseing it makes it feel heavier in the turns
