Buying a new front tyre soon and was wondering if the profile on the front tyre affects the handling in anyway? i have a 120/60 find it fine, but are 120/70's better for maximum lean angle or is that affected at all? thanks!

(if you could give me a pros/cons it would be greatly appreciated):thumbup:

comparing sizes can be tricky if you take race tyres into account because they differ.

if you're talking street tyres only

120/60 will have the tendency to fall into a corner but it'll feel less stable while cornering and it'll be harder to flick the bike over from one side to the other.
120/70 needs more rider input to turn in but it provides more stability and it's easier to flick the bike over.
