180 rear tire on a 1000

Has anyone ever ran a 180 on the back of their 1000? I am going to austin this weekend and my 208 is about smoked, i have a diablo off of my old bike that only had 3 days worth of riding on it. I am waiting on my dunlop but its on backorder. Any info will help thanks.

Thats acually about what i get them for anyway, it is a good deal. I paid 144 for my last 208, the only reason i got it was because the qualifier was (and still is) on back order through. Thanks for the heads up though.
