has anyone ever ran on 190/50/17 on the 2006 zx-10r? was wondering what is the differences between the 190/55/17 and 190/50/17.

they say the handling is slowed but I haven't noticed much. It also has a smaller contact patch at full lean. You will probably never notice on the street.

The handling "is" sluggish only when compared to a 55.

They ride perfectly fine straight. With the larger contact patch in the center your the 50 "may" last a little longer. The do fine in the canyons, just not as good as the 55's. For your average street rider, you probably wouldn't know the difference.

The 50 series will lower the rear slightly.
