I cant find a 170 sized tyre for my S1 anymore. What are you guys fitting?

I used conti road attacks 2 last time I was on road tyres, not sure if they're still available, check with Black circles they usually have a fairly good choice :idea:
Or eBay, there's a few options listed there

Shame that the 170 isn't a popular size with bike manufacturers. Each time we go up by 10, the steering just starts feeling a bit heavier and heavier.

I had an F3 Honda I raced 20 years ago (120F/160R) and it turned nicely and stayed there. Always liked how the Buells felt with 170s. It's a good size for the road.

-plus one for Conti Road Attacks got them on Uly and TDM850 - they are now up to V3 but can still get Attack 2 Evos with stickier compound and generally good price
