I'd agree with Ed on his recommendations.
Hhowever, if you are aggressive on the street then I'd recommend the BT014, M3. Powers or Qualifiers. Mainly not just from the better traction but because over time the other tires will "square off".
If your front Dunlop is still in good shape I wouldn't recommend mixing it with the Michelins.
If you're on a budget the M1's are an excellent tire with good grip and reasonable mileage, especially if you watch your tire pressures.

Are you running the 218 Dunlops? If so I know of a deal on a set that are new. They where pulled off a stock 600RR. Less than a 100 miles on them. I think he is asking $200 for both but I can verify if you are interested. Otherwise, I would go with a set of Bridgestone or Michelins.

Maybe it was $150.. I do not remember what he wanted but, they are just sitting in his garage. So, I imagine a deal can be worked out.
