Kawasaki zx6 rear tyre

Hi all, Can anyone shed some light for me? I have been told that I maybe able to fit a different size rear tyre to my bike. The book says that I need a 170/60/17, I have been told that I could fit a 180/60. Is this OK? If it is what affect will it have on the bike, if any?

OK ignore this comment, just had a look at tyre sizes and I dont think that such a tyre is out there.So much for phoning the professionals for advice. Muppets.

180/55

The rolling diameter will be ever so slightly smaller but shouldn't make much difference.

This is the commonest rear tyre size on the planet - you will have a much wider choice of tyre makes/models.

You just need to check the extra 5mm clearance is available each side of the tyre.
