His local mechanics, have advised him to go one size smaller (diameter) on the front wheel, which "should" improve slow speed characteristics of the bike, while not taking away from highway cruising.....


I'm pretty sure he has no idea what "top heavy" bikes are really capable of.


Thumbs up to the video.
Ohhh shit, bad mechanic, owner asking for advice from a stealership (its a motomag, after all) and bad advice all in one. No one mentioned riding more, or training? Someone shove a gang of cheapskates that ride a shit ton his direction quick !
