NEW TIRE's UPDATE
Ok here is what happened, I put on a 170/80-15 rear and a 110/90-19 front. Both were pierelli MT66. I personally did not care for the way the bike handled with the bigger rear tire, just felt sluggish and not as quick or nimble,(I drive more city and twisties then anything else) Also only saw rpms go down only about 100-150.
So I put on a 150/90-15 MT66 and the bike FEELS so much better, quicker,easier turning into corners, feels stable, lower speed handling ,etc...
I'm not sure what to say about it, I REALLY like the bigger 110 up front, but I did not like the 170 on the rear. I prefer the 150. Just my humble opionion and experience over the last 10 days and 400 miles.
