I personally have not placed 200s on my bike yet but my buddies rock 200s on theirs (R10s) it gives it a taller profile making it a but easier to lean real hard

on the street a 200 wont do anything for you. stick with a 190/55. the 200 gives you more edge grip at full lean. thats all i run when im racing. street use i stick with the 190.

Thanks Lexus, I was going to do it for the look. So if it will hinder my riding I'd rather not.

200 is WIDER than 190. Profile height pertains to the aspect ratio.

And on the street, a 180 or 190 is a smaller contact patch and thus, less rolling resistance and friction, give you slightly better gas mileage if that's any concern. Wider tires are more for lean angle. Plus you didn't say which year bike you had. The 6.0" rims are made for 190-200 tires but a 5.5 is only for a 180-190 size. Oversized tires may slip or come off the rim in hard lean pressure and also just be "floppy" in heavy turns. No need for wider tires unless you use them properly.
