180/55 tires on the ER6N

Decided to convert the rear from a 4.5 to a 5.5 wheel. This is made possible with the TWF Racing ZX6R conversion kit. The kit consists of 3 spacers and some milling job done on the sprocket carrier. A new Wheel from a ZX6R/636 (Mine is of a 05-06 636) is also needed for this mod. Tires look nice and fat now so far improved ride handling can be felt with improved corner entry & exit speed probably due to the bigger contact patch between the tire and the road. Definitely not a placebo effect.
