Stop giving advise people, jeez.
I assume you understand that these are DOT race tires and will require for you to use tire warmers. Likewise, that it is recommended for those tires to be used only at the track, right?
Anyway, I used those tires on my 07 R6 with no problem. You will feel a great difference compared to street tires. Pretty good tires IMO. You should be fine on the fitting part.
What tires are you planning to get? the 209s or 211s? What compound?
Since these are DOT Race tires, you can only get them from certain people. You might find more information on www.dunlopracing.com or the "local" Dunlop dealer is in Dallas. The name is North Texas Superbikes, google it.

It will handle differently.
It will probably fall into the corners slower.
I'd just stick with a good 180 unless you are really spinning up the rear on corner exits.
Definetly wouldn't be running these as street tires.

Dunlop Racing doesn't make a 180, but I do not believe the Dunlop 190 is a true 190 is I am not mistaken. That's neither here or there. Only use these tires on the street if you plan on doing some serious non stop twistie riding. I mean dragging knees and elbowz riding
