RE: rear tyre size
I went with Metzelers 200/70HB-15 on my 2002 650 Classic. Definitely a noticeable difference in size. I have only had them on for a month so I dont know how they are going to ware. The shop that installed them warned me that the tires will eventually ware outward and in a couple of years may start rubbing against the frame. Time will tell but several others have used this size tire on the same bikes and have not reported this issue.

A quick search on Amazon has them listed at about $230
