I put BST Carbon wheels on my Gen 1, 6.5 inches, went with the 200/55 rear. While the wheels cost almost what the bike is worth, WOW what a difference, like adding 20 hp. Much quicker acceleration, quicker braking, and turns side to side with very little effort.
With the higher rear profile, turn in is much sharper. The first turn I took after installing the new rims, I almost ran off the road - to the inside! Turned in so much quicker.
The BST's are so light, makes the stockers feel like lead anchors. Highly recommend going with the 6.5" and 200. Plus, fat rear tires look cool!
