I ran a 120/150 combo (Pirelli SC DOT race) on mine all last season in sprints and the LW endurance rounds. never had a problem with that combo.

A lot of guys run 110/140, but I think these days you have to mix-n-match models to get the right sizes.

140/110 should turn in quicker. Always what I ran on my Aprilia Ride Smart 250 cup bike. Razor sharp responsive.....all you had to do was think turn and it started.

Sorry Barry, I thought I had replied to your question... It's been crazy busy at work ever sense Panasonic bought us out.
I like the Bridgestone 110/140. But make sure it's R10

Pirelli 110/140 is what we run.

No need to run the 150 unless it gives you more side wall. With so little power I would keep the smaller tire.
