Out of the 2, which one is better for street (no track at all)?

I've found www.ronayers.com to have the best prices on the M1s... They also have good prices on the Diablos and Corsas ... Whatever you decide, you will love them compared to the stockers...

Stock size (front/rear):

what about the michelins are they any good
Yes Michelins are good but the most reputable somewhat of a downside to them is their inherent longer warm-up time as compared to other brands therefore many people stay away.
Michelin has the new for 04 Pilot Power for street bikes but it won't be available for a couple of months yet.
