165 tire in rear of Daytona?

Hey folks,

Out of curiosity, has anyone ever downsized the rear tire and gone to a 165 or 170? I know the 5.5" rim comes stock with the 180, but curious if anyone has experimented with a smaller tire.

Race only bike.

It could be done but i wouldnt reccomend it. Bike will turn in quicker but you will pose alot of edge grip and drive.
