I am a new 636 owner and recently bought a new set of michelin pilot powers. The rear tire is the OEM size but the front is a 120/70 rather than a 65. This tire would be a bit taller...right? approx 5mm or so by my calculations. Has anyone ever used this tire size? Does it matter? Thank you for any advice prior to mounting the tires

120/70 works fine and is preferred. However, to correct for the taller tire you will want to drop the front end about 5mm by loosening the triples and letting them slide down. I would suggest using some tie downs and suspending the bike from a rafter to the triple to take the weight off the forks.
