An interesting thread to pick up..
Im going 15/38 on my 550 with 17" supermoto wheels. Currently I have 15/47 in enduro form.
And yes I like them tall. Stock enduro is 15/48 and that is as short as I would want this bike anywhere.
Stock Fs 550 was 16/38. Did I say that right?
Now that sounds very tall.
So I seem to be close at 15/38 for general street use not track racing. If not, I can see going to 15/40.
16/40 is where my Fs 650 is happy.
