do you have a 5.5" (98) rim, or 6.0" (2000) rim?

190 will fit on the stock 98 5.5" rim, but doesnt "feel" as good as a 180 IMO.

looking at pics of your bike, you have a 98-99 swingarm,dead giveaway as it is square.
Looking at yur bike again, I think you have 98-99 forks as well, as you have the smaller 98-99 rotors on there if you had 00-01 your calipers would not work with the smaller rotors. Was that bike toataled and then rebuilt? How do you even know that you have a 00 engine?
What does the title say, and what vin number are you using to register the bike?

Sorry for the late responce...It has a 2000 engine, i can tell from the "E1" in the vin..... also bike is titled and registered as a 98' the frame is a 98 from the "C1" in the vin... previous owner cracked 2000 frame and got a 98 cheap and swapped. I do beleive forks are from a 98-99 but wasnt sure about the arm becuz someone told me the 190 tire wouldnt fit a 98 arm....The rim is a 6.0" (2000) rim

realistically any you want... depends on how much you have to spend. really just 98-99 will bolt right on. 00-03 all fit the same, and you can do it but will need to sleeve the pivot bolt and have new bushings made.

I put and 02-03 style (with the brace) on my 99. sleeving the bolt and having the bushings made cost me $200, and I bought the swingarm ebay style for $75
