I just replaced my OEM hoops. I bought the Bike 12 months ago and run up about 6k .(Covid) !
Picked the bike up, went out the Eastern Freeway to scrub them and back. Took the turn for "the Boulevarde " to try them out.
The "Boulevarde" is a Few twisties but the Road is Not Great. Surface can be "Mixed " !
Guys, I had Reservations about going with the 55 ! ....I am So glad I did. The best way I can describe it is "Stability with Lean ", no pushback needed .
I have been playing around with my suspension to get it "Right" for me and wondered if I will have to set it up again with new tyres . Eased Comp damping back 1/8 turn. Wow.
The S22 has transformed my Ninja in a Very subtle way, but I love it !
Big Shoutout to Benzina . Not a mark on Rims or Bike.

That was my feeling as well when I went to 190/55 rear on my 2018. Stability, with neutral steering, without the need to maintain pressure on the bars to negotiate long, arcing turns. Speedometer is closer to accurate too. 1 mph off no instead of about 4-5 mph stock. No effect on ABS/TC.
