Rotor sizing question

I think I want to upgrade my disc brakes from the BB-5 to the BB-7. I was thinking of moving to a larger rotor size (from 160 to 185) but my Dart 2 specs recommend a max of 160 So i assume it would be bad idea to move to a larger rotor am I right? or are they just being overly cautious?

i'm sure you could get away with it, but i'd stick to the recommendations. better safe than sorry is one path people can follow.

can you save the 160 from bb5 when you upgrade to bb7? that'd save you coin, right?
