I have the 170/80 in a Kenda Kruz. I like the taller tire without the cost of going to the 200; has helped reduce the rpm at speed (no longer looking for 6th gear), handles much better than the stock Dunnies, helped with the speedo error, for me has made the bike a much better bike. Even with the Scootwork pulley, you should be fine. So far, I have 6500 and the tires still look new, both ends.
I've used Michelin brand tires, but not this specific tire, on other bikes and have liked them, and I will use nothing but Michelin on my cagers.
Ride safe, my friends.
