    Default Gen 2 - Can I put on a 180/55/17 instead of 190/50/17

    Can I put on a 180/55/17 instead of the stock 190/50/17 tire size on the 2009 FZ1?

    I am sure someone will be curious as to why I would want to do that. The reason is I am thinking of riding the Denali Highway in Alaska later this year, and want to put on Continental TK70/TK80 tires for the Vancouver to Alaska and back. I would go back to stock 190 after the road trip.
    Also, I have not found any 190 tire with that type of gravel road capability. If you guys know of a 190 tire that is a bit more knobby, please let me know.

    Thanks.
