That's my favorite size for this bike. I have an 02 and the narrower size soaks up bumps better and warms up more. You'll still have plenty of rubber for leaning over, just a little less chicken strip, and easier turn in. Oh, did I mention a much smoother ride?

Shinko makes that size and it grips amazingly nicely!
