stock tire/size for 02 GSXR 750

I have a used bike that had race tires on it and they are nearly bald now that I'm riding in the rain sometimes they need changed and I don't know if they are stock size or not since they aren't OEM. I just wanted to know what the stock size is for the bike and either what the OEM tire is or what a good tire would be to put on there for the street, I'm mostly riding in houston so I don't need a super sticky tire I want something with acceptable wear on the street.

front should be 120/70/17 and rear 180/55/17 and I think the michelin pilot powers are good tires

well, prolly in '02 the 190/55/17 sized tire wasn't out yet. so prolly a 190/50/17. i'd recommend dropping to a 180/55/17.

check on the sticker that is on your bike or call the dealer. The rear use a 190/50 instead of 190/55.

I just hope the powers dont wear out really quick they sorta look like they would. I don't really ride fast much or on curvy roads much I wonder if a dunlop d220 would better serve me. My friend has over 8000 miles on his set.

All 2000 and up GSXR 750's came stock wth a 180 rear tire.
For general street use with good traction and wear, I'd recommend either the Metzler Z6 Roadtec or the Michelin Pilot Road. We keep both in stock.
