190/60-17 rear... some go wider more available 200/55-17.
The R radials...
Stay away from the ZR's especially in the Metzeler. Hi speed tire wears real fast.
And the Brazil made tires many had issue with, dry rot cracking.
The new 200 metz some are having good luck with, just not enough miles for good review. The Avon's have been reviewed by many and seem to be the best choice right now. the rest is preference. I have the dunlop's that came on it and around 4,000 miles and they look good so just hoping they hold up while some get more miles on theres for review. The 200 width popular as HD tire so many available dunlops and avon.
Had over 43,000 on my R* it was on its third rear tire, and I could get 12,000 and change and replace with little wear would just start to get flat spot, loved Metz marathon's on that bike.
Good Luck... Some more will post in, if you have time keep reading...lol
