I have the original rims on my Roadster , both chrome VM's , runnong Avon 100/90 on the front and a Dunlop TT 100 on the rear.m It steers quick enough for my abilities.
Sounds like you are a pretty aggressive rider. That being the case, tubeless radials would be the best choice. This would necessitate changing to cast rims. I guess some have mounted tubeless tires with spoke rims, but it wouldn't be my choice. No doubt, cast rims from a salvage yard could probably be had for considerably less than a new complete laced up alloy spoke rim.
Some of our resident racers can probably give you some good advice on tires. I'm just a street putter.
A man's worth is not measured by what he has achieved...It is measured by what he went through to achieve it.
If you smile every time you flip on the garage light, you own the right motorcycle.
