Suit yourself. I'm just sayin' that if the tire you want comes in a 140 but not a 130 - don't be "afraid" of putting one on the bike. I would avoid the 150 (even though many have used them on the EX wheel).

I put the 140 on originally because the 130 wasn't available - and did not regret it.

Regardless of which size you put on the bike - the Shinko is a good tire (at least the ones I used were good). It might not be a Dunlop or Bridgestone sport-compound radial, but it's a better tire than the (at the time I had an EX) Bridgestone bias-ply tires that came on the bike.

I like Pirelli tires, so on an EX500/500R I would use Sport Demons.

Back on topic:

MotorCyclistWorld named the Ninja 1000 Motorcycle of the Year (sorry, I can't tell MotorCyclist and Cycle World apart anymore). They said it won because it's an extremely competent bike that can do almost everything, at a cost that is rational in today's economy.

I think that's a good call. Riders these days are less interested in which bikes "shave" 3 lbs. off last years weight and more interested in which bikes "save" $5,000 or more. They're also more likely to look for a bike that can meet two or three riding scenarios vs. a highly focused, single-purpose bike.

Its.......A FACT!
