Look for a Shinko "hook-up" at this site.. http://www.chaparral-racing.com/Prod...69-874650.aspx

They are alot lighter then the U-soft and you don't need to run a 200 unless you are turbo'd or running NOS.

Otherwise a 190 or even a 180 is more then enough, the thinner the tire the better. Because it is alot less weight that your engine is trying to spin. I run a 180 on my 09' zx10r and 03' gsxr1000 and never have problems with hooking up.

2005 ZX-10R Akrapovic Ti Evo 2 w/CF LOR can, PC3 with custom map, Factory Pro velocity stacks

2009 ZX-10r Full Gen4 Brock's SS exhaust with CF 14" can, PC3, Secondary Butterflies Removed, Kawasaki Race Exhaust Cam, My Own TRE, Degreed Cams 109/108

2011 zx10r Lower'd 2" Frt & Rear, Stretched 8", Graves CF slipon, GUHL Flashed ECU

go with 180 hook up, less weight, same traction.

180 and 190 will have about close to the same area contacting the ground, but the weight will make big difference since it's since it's like 18 inches or so from the center.

Shinko Stealth 003 U-soft 190 if street and drag racing. For ONLY THE STRIP, get the Shinko Hook Up 190 50 17 as nothing comes close to it's traction and it is light as hell. But not to be used on the street as it is just way too soft both compound and the sidewall. For some street riding and some track use get the Stealth 003 usoft, Can't beat that tires grip aside from a $250 Michelin. Can get 2 003 U-soft tires for that kinda $.
