What is stock tire size for 02?

What size tires are you 2002 guys running. Mine and my firends 02 r1's came with a 180 rear but the service manual says it should be a 190....

Did you buy the bikes used? A lot of people go down to a 180.

Stock size is 190.

Asked if he was afraid of dying in an accident, Marco Simoncelli responded: "No. You live more for five minutes going fast on a bike like that, than other people do in all of their life." rip #58 ciao ciao bello

See for yourself....
Higher profile, larger contact patch when leaned.... less straight line stability but I consider this very slight.
