I just got the bike and it came with the 4.6x17 270. I installed the 130/90 17 705. There's obviously a huge difference in the diameter of the tires. I don't have a pic of the front but it's close to the chain cover.
Now 4th gear feels like 5th did.

Same thing happened when I put my new Gripsters on... I could tell as soon as I climbed on the bike that it was an inch or two taller. On the highway it actually dropped my RPM by a couple of hundred. Only downside for me was that it rubbed my chain guard and I had to space my muffler out to clear the wheel.
