-1 or -1/+2 are the most common, but it's still fairly common. We really can't say "our thoughts" though as gearing is a personal thing and needs to be tailored to how you ride and what you want out of your bike. Do you do top speed runs, wheelies, nothing but commuting, track days, very hard street riding, etc? Let us know how you ride and we can let you know our thoughts on that gearing for how you ride.

+1 to what Ian said. If you run a 190/55 and your bike comes stock with a 190/50 then you need to adjust the rear sprocket for that and add 1 tooth to the rear. This doesn't really do anything except counter act the new tire size.
