I'm not getting on very well with the OEM metzelar tourance next tyres on my GT Pro. I would like to change to Michelin Road 5 which I've found to be very good on previous bikes. Unfortunately they don't do a 100/90R19 which is what is recommended. Should I go for the 110/80? Only 0.6% difference in dimensions and speedo reading. Other options?

It'll be fine. The speedometer doesn't read off the front tire anyway.

Thanks. Do you know if changing the recommended tyre size will have any impact on the warranty?

I can't imagine it would but I'm in the states and I think we're a little more free of things like that. I think they'd have to prove that the slight change in the size caused whatever issue. I just don't see that ever happening.

I've heard a lot of complaints over the years.
