2014 GSA tire option will a 150/70 17 fit

I just ruined my conti2 which is a 170-60-17, can I replace it with a 150-70 17 Road 3 trial (which I use to use in my old GS)
TIA

Yes but is close to swing arm at the front, about 1/4" or so clearance, lifts bike and makes speedo more accurate. This is with Mittas tyres I fitted front and back.

I am running 110 on the front, 150 on the rear without any problem. I am sure the tire police will chime in saying the world will end if you do that. But I like living on the edge...

I just put my Michelin Pilot 3 in the rear, and it fits just fine. will take it for a road trip soon. I loved the Conti2 but after the puncture it became useless.... hopefully the P3 will do Ok in the gravel too.
