    Bridgestone Battlax MotoGP tires may not be a good choice.

    Why wider? Unless you have trick bits, a 5 hour engine, braced everything, ect, keep your stock sizes and have fun. Go with the Avon Road riders in my humble opinion.
    That's like, your opinion, man.

    Don't be a total dork (just a little bit of a dork )
    You don't want wider tyres on stock rims, and, you don't want wider rims for wider tyres on a CB200, it doesn't have the power to overcome the extra drag (unless your intention is to make a slow bike slower?)

    You won't be able to get wider tires up to temp quickly and they will never perform as well as correctly sized tires.

    Goldenboy 50/50 tires of the proper size.

    Have some real fun on the little CL.

    (I don't recall offhand the stock sizes for your 200, but the set should cost you around 75 bucks...)
