Tire Size??? zx6r 02'

Trying to decide on the best tire to get for my first trackday. I have settled on the michelin Pilot Power but I dont know if I should go with the 120/70 or the 120/60. I have a chance to get the 120/60 really cheap but I am not sure on whats best for the track.
any opinions would be great

thanks

The 120/60 will make the bike a bittwitchy due to the narower profile. It's good in a slick, not a street tire. Stick with ther 120/70 for sure.

120/70 has a nice turn in feel to it.
