Have fitted new 140 70 13 tyre - stock is 130 70 14 CORRECTION - STOCK IS 130 70 13 - SORRY

Have to lose the mudguard.
Corrects speedo only slightly.
Seat seems higher off ground.
No real benefit as such.

How would changing rear tire affect speedometer ? The speedometer is mounted on the front wheel

I find that it is higher and much better over speedhumps, doesn't scrape.
Using standard rim.
At same RPM am going faster on speedo.
Getting slightly higher top speed.
Quite right, won't correct reading on speedo.
