OK, I got a deal on some Kenda K270's.
Off-sizes though: 3.25 x 21 and 5.10 x 18
So it looks like the front is slightly wide and the rear slightly narrow. Anyone see any issues or run these sizes?

I believe there were several upgrades with the ZRX1200 from running gear to the ZZR1200 derived motor. The older ZX11 based engines may have some oiling issues though I've never seen one go bad.
