Also note that tubeless tyres will be lighter than stock tyres because there are no tubes, and your tubeless tyres are of lower diameter than stock. Secondly, brand new tyres will not attain maximum grip till they have run about 500 kms, so the steering could become a little tighter as you run in the tyres.
Thanks - will wait and see what happens after another 200-250km, also will see if things change with 28psi tyre pressure

If I'm not mistaken, I think my stock tyres were tubeless too, but reduced diameter would obviously reduce weight...

I would recommend going down to 28 psi because of the increased area/volume of the bigger tyres. 30 psi IMO is a little too high.
