Yes you can. I used to run them on mine, ex track day tyres when I was a bit low on dosh. They are slightly taller and she'll tip in a lot quicker, I found I had to almost hold the bike up round corners if the gas wasn't on, but seemed to be able to get on the gas more coming out. Take it steady until you're comfortable with the difference.
