Well, the 140/70 ME888 I have on the front of mine still has a lot of tread left. Typical two rears for one front situation. So I'll be keeping that if I go with a Chrome 280.

I've run mixed tires before, never been an issue. I used to run Cuntinental dual compounds on the rear and Metzeler ME88's on the front, back in the 80's and 90's. On a CBX and a GT-750.

I second the lack of any issue with different brand tires.
I don't suggest mixing bias-ply with radials, but there have been people who swear it's ok. (I'm not one of them!)
