SV650 Track Tires?

Ok guys I have searched but am still debating on a couple things as you guys know an SV has a 160 rear and is limited to certain tires.I have about one track day left on the tires that are on the bike so a change is going to be in the next couple of weeks. If this was a 180 rear I would already know a couple tires I would think of using. My bike has a set of Michelin Pilot Race's On it. And the cmra racer I bought it from swears by these tires. Im open minded and wanted to explore what are you guys running on it. This is a track bike only so no street miles will be put on it. I kind of shy away from a slick because I havent got tire warmers yet. Let me know and if your a dealer shoot me some prices I have spoke with John on here and he has send me some prices but I want to explore my options
Thanks guys
-nick

I am running power race on mine right now and liking them. I like that the 650 does now kill tires like the big bikes. I was givin about 4 sets of the powers, so I am running them for now. I think I will switch to the bt003 and bt016 combo when I use all of these up. You also have the option of bt002 r/s and bt016 and that will give you a few more track days out of front.

Fk a bunch of spelling when you can ride like that guy.

Last few times I've seen, Tony runs Pirelli slicks.
