You don't know much about Japanese motorcycle manufacturers then. The OEM tyres on bikes are almost never the same as what you buy off the rack. They have different compounds and are often a different construction or size. The '01-'02 GSXR 1000's for example had a "190" rear tyre on them, but it was actually closer to a 180 in size. It was made that way for Suzuki so that the bike turned in and handled well but still had pose value for owners because of the markings on the side. "See, it has a 190 on it."Originally posted by YoungLion
and trust me, no manufacturer would put a crap set of Buns on thier latest, greatest SuperSport bike.
