    shinko 705 rear on klr650

    Comments On Feb 07, 2016:I have used these tires both rear & fronts with great results, I do mostly road riding with a few dirt or gravel roads , I average between 5000-6000 miles on rear tire & maybe a bit more on the front, depending on the length of my ride when its getting low on tread. When you consider the price of these at R M its hard to spend more money on expensive tires & probably not get any better wear.

    Excellent tires

    Comments On Jan 04, 2016:These are great dual sport tires. You can get very aggressive cornering with these tires and they do pretty well on the nasty forest roads. You might be crazy to use them on a muddy trail, though.

    Good tire for a great price

    Comments On Oct 23, 2015:I was aware of the 705 before I bought it from Rocky Mountain (RM), but what clinched it for me was the great video support they offer for most of their stock. The videos keep your attention, not slow or boring, very professional and not some guy talking a mile a minute to try and impress. Your videos and reviews on the Shinko 705, made selecting it easy. I just bought my bike a few weeks ago, and like all things I do I started collecting accounts to make selection and buying an ease, but after reviewing 6 other parts providers, RM has them all beat. The prices are so much lower than their competitors. Thanks for making a website that is so user friendly, and having the since to keep track of my machine. You guys rock!

    Great so far

    Comments On Sep 08, 2015:Installed a pair of 705's on my R 1200 GSA the break in time is fairly long almost 200 miles before they felt comfortable but after that they ride good on dirt roads and on the interstate also grippy in the rain . With 5,500 miles the front looks almost new the rear should last another 1,000 . But at the price about 1/2 of others who could complain . I'll keep buying for sure!

    Great tire for the price.

    Comments On Sep 02, 2015:2012 Super Tenere 1200. Woody's Wheels conversion 21"x17". I have had Pirelli MT90 AT Tires as well as a rear Heidenau K60 on this bike. I wanted to try the 705's as I used 009 Raven Shinko tires on my Triumph Tiger 1050 and the 705's on my 98 Tiger 900 in the past. Observation: the Pirelli tires are almost close cousin to the 705's but cost much more and may have a deeper tread. Conclusion: I prefer the Shinko's they hold to dirt much better last just under the same miles as the MT90. K60? Nice long life but to my they start feeling snotty wet or dry after 3k miles, at 5k I took them off. I prefer grip over long life any day, I blame the center solid strip on the K60's it is like a street tire with hard rubber. I get around 5.5k out of the 705 tire. The front tire should be called Shinko Howlers lots of noise but I use ear plugs after about 500 miles the do calm down a little.
    Dang good tire can hold a load as well.

    Great life

    Comments On Jul 09, 2015:I've had this tire on my bike for a while and have taken it offroad. I used to run 33psi but now run stock pressure because it's more comfortable both on and offroad. It works surprisingly well offroad. It runs a little warmer after riding on the freeway at stock pressure, but I haven't had any problems. I've taken a nail and a screw to the tire so far. The nail was about an inch into a shoulder tread block and didn't penetrate the tube, the screw went straight between the tread blocks and it was all over for the tube. Replaced the tube and all is well.

    9,991 miles

    Comments On May 20, 2015:I did not want to spend a lot of $ on tires. The last mile of my commute is in a dirt rail yard at best, not good for tires! I ran 9,991 miles on the rear tire. It had 2/32 in the center left. Never a flat. Front is still about 85% I dont ride serious off road,but I do like to explore! Mostly on graded dirt roads in the desert some easy trails, I have a dirt bike for the hard stuff. These tires work great on the street and on wet pavement. They were less than half the price of the tires they replaced. 2007 BMW GS1200 R

    NC700X rear tire

    Comments On May 14, 2015:The 150/70 worked great for me, comparing longevity to a PR3 I think this tire does well. I got around 6,000 miles compared to the PR3 getting about 8,500. Improves off-road fun and after a few hundred miles it feels fine on the road, but at first it feels knobby. Surprisingly good wet traction as well.

    Initial impressions only here.

    Comments On Mar 30, 2015:Installed on an '05 VStrom 650. During the 285,000km I have logged on my Wee I have went through alot of tires. Mostly Battle Wings, with a sprinkling of Tourance's and Anakee's. There was little to differentiate between those tires, especially in feel/handling of the bike. Let me tell (warn?) you that right off the cuff you WILL feel a huge difference in the feel and handling of your ride with these tires. Now I'm not saying that this will end up being good or bad, these are my initial impression immediatly after installing and going for about a 50KM ride. The very first thing I thought was that the front tire had gone flat, it definatly provides a much heavier feel through the bars. Nope, checked the pressure and it was fine. Continue the ride. Cornering is a whole new experience, especially at lower speeds. It is though these tires are gluing themselves to the pavement, and the bike feels like it is "falling" into corners and then wants to immediatly sit up when you are finishing your corner. Out onto the highway, they do make some noise, a hum I have never noticed with the other tires I typically use, which at a 90/10 designation are pretty much a street bike tire. I did travel down a short dirt type road (not gravel) and I would have to say they are a big improvement over the other skins I have used. Having read other reviews, I was somewhat prepared for the difference in turning/cornering so I was not completely shocked. The front does feel out of balance with the rear (more traction front than rear) but I expect to get used to it. This is a meaty tire, no doubt. I do hope I can get close to the mileage I generally got with Battle Wing (average 12,000km) because the price is much easier to handle when you buy 3 rears and 2 fronts each year. I install my own tires, and these are noticably easier to spoon on. Time will tell how I end up liking the Shinko 705. Please note, I gave them a 3 star rating only because the review calls for a rating and I didnt want to put a poor or exceptional rating so early in the tires life.
