My husbands 06 ZX-10R takes a 190 / 55 / 17 and the only way I can get the 55 size is to go directly through kawi at 287.85 without tax so around 312.00 for the rear tire. Now the question is can I go to a 190 / 50 / 17. Will the 50 cause me to have worse handling or will it not be that noticable. Thoughts and opions please.

Any ideas please.?

I agree. I switched from the 190/55 to the 190/50 Pilot Powers.

As in other post... I have to echo Oly's words. Damn tires are amazing, and the bike feels better on the 50 than it did on stock.
