I always used Metzelers on my 550 and 750 GPZ's, couldnt fault them.
It is getting harder to find tyres for some of the older bikes now, only matched pair I can get for my 96 GPZ900 are Avon Road Riders, luckily there not a bad tyre.

it really depends on where hes located, and wether hes wanting to fit and balance them himself or he wants someone else to fit em to a loose wheel. once thats known then more suitable/usable answers will follow

If you want to go the mail order route try these
http://www.blackcircles.com/bikes
Is it a Unitrack or twin shock model as there might be differences with availability?

I always buy tyres one at a time...so that I don't have to scrub them in at the same time...better to have one dodgy tyre than two...John

I'm in Brum,ain't too bothered about mail order or not,cuz i've got a freindly tyre fitter who'll do it for a drink. Beats pissing around doing it myself!
Just wanna get em as cheap as poss, but don't wanna buy cheap tyres!
It's a unitrak model, getting the right sizes ain't the problem, me being a tightwad and wanting the best deal is!

In spite of all the comments about my chinese king tyre (tire) on my back wheel I scrubbed it in for about 200 miles on lots of twisties and now the bike sticks to the twisties like it is glued there....John
