I'm hoping you meant a 120 on the front. The biggest issue with putting a 190 on the front is that it simply wouldn't fit. Then after that there's the turning issues and the height issues if by some chance you could squeeze a 190 in the space where a 120 goes without changing the entire front end. Edit: just saw that you meant 125 not 190 front...to which I agree that not many manufacturers even make a notable tire in that sizeQuestion for all experienced riders. Is it ok for me to put 190/55-17 in front and 190/55-17 in rear for my '08 600RR. Any advantages or disadvantages for normal street riding? Thanks!
Ill bite, you won't have a wider looking tire if you're still squeezing it onto a 180 rim, it will be taller. Get a wider rim and swingarm and you get what you want.Thanks arcticamt6! I do have a valid reason. Wider tyres look better don't you agree?
First off, you won't get a lot of support on this forum about the wide tires look. Most here don't do stuff like that and don't like seeing people do that to these bikes.Ok in the sense that they will fit properly and achieve the "wide tires" look.
nope. a 125/80-17 front may not even clear your fender. my advice is to stick with the stock sizes. i've never even heard of a 125 front for a sportbike.Question for all experienced riders.

Are you sure the rim specs for a 1000cc motogp bike is the same as a 600 cc street bike!?! Not being positive myself I would venture to assume that motogp rims are a lil wider than you cbr rims! Correct me if I'm wrong.MotoGP2 bikes run these tire and rim specs. Thanks for all of your comments.
