200 rear tire vs scootworks o/d pulley

I have an 08 custom with the front o/d pulley installed but I want to put the 200 rear tire on it, I know the two wont work together but I was hoping someone would know what o/d percentage the tire gives vs the pulley. I want to change to that tire but I dont want to lose any reduction from removing the pulley. Do these two products offer the same reduction?

Sharing some numbers others have posted that may help... Someone help if I'm figuring the % of difference incorrectly. I did not calculate the RPM #'s myself, but the front pulley RPM listed does match what the scootworks website claims as well (the 5.9%).

Stock tire, stock pulley, for reference: RPM at 60 MPH = 3511
Stock tire, scootworks front pulley: RPM at 60 MPH = 3304 (roughly 5.9% change)
200/70-15 rear tire, stock pulley: RPM at 60 MPH = 3362 (roughly 4.3% change)

60 RPM difference @ 60 MPH, not just a HUGE difference.
