I am in the market for getting some new rubber for my bike...I have an 06 kawi 636, the kawi's come with 120-65-zr-17's up front but Dunlop only makes 120-60's and 120-70's....Which way should I go and will there be any differance in the handle of the bike?

Also if there is anyone here that is running the Qualifiers....what do you think?

Lots of tire threads lately. Go with the 70 front, you'll love it waaay more than the 65. As for the quals, I couldn't tell you. I got a new set of Metzeler M3's and will never use any other tire again on my bikes. These are the best all around tires I've ever used.

I can't speak from personal experience, but I've heard the Qualifiers are arguably the best tires out, edging out Powers. But their downfall is tire life, and for that reason I would go with the Powers.

Qualifiers all the way. They're more forgiving in a corner and don't step out as easily as the powers. As far as the tread life is concerned the Qualifers should last longer then the Powers considering the Powers are a single soft compound tire and the Qualifiers are a triple compound tire with a hard center medium inner and soft outer
