Re: Tire size

Last set I had before selling the sv was pirelli Diablo rosso 3. Stuck like glue.

If you are a sunny skies rider only, then Q3s or the new Q4s have been a top choice. I went with Michelin Pilot Power 3s because I also ride in the rain. I am 100% confident in them in all conditions as long as the temp is above 50F.
Q4 is a poor choice for a street tire (no tire life), it's really a trackday tire. Stick to the Q3+

120/70 front is fine and opens up a lot of tire options, but you need to slip your forks 8-12mm above the triple to keep the steering geometry
