rear tire

You can install a Toyo they have the size to ask by the manufacturer to be 225/50 / R15

The general is about 1.5 inches taller than the stock tire, gives you a hair more speed per gear for the same RPM. For my personal riding style this is the wrong direction. I do not need more top end speed, I would prefer a little more low end. country roads at 55 mph and I am at about 4500 rpm my bike hates 4000 - 4500 rpm it loves 5000 rpm So I just ordered another new rear tire Hankook 205/50R15 this tire measures 23.1 inch tall. almost 1 inch shorter than stock, this should give a very slight increase in rpm at any given speed. So I will be puttin a brand new General altimax tire up for sale. it has about 10 miles on it. if you are looking to lower your RPM at any given speed by about 50 to 100 rpm this will do it

Which front tires ?
The originals or some other replacements ??

The original OEM tires should have the size on the sidewall......and in the owners manual.

Replacements will generally be OK if you stick as close as possible to the originals.

Yokohama S Drive in rear ( fantastic tire! 2years running ( instant difference when I rode it)
Original front ( tire pressure is a huge factor )
15 18 lbs for me
Rear 22 or 24
Do not be afraid to experiment
You should be able to cruise from 50 to 80 mph with no issues
If you can’t
Find a new dealer who knows how to set up the bike
Sway bars etc are arite but the design works perfectly well without them
