    1998 K1200RS. Wow!! Cheap Price. Quality Ride.

    Comments On Feb 20, 2016:I really bought the cheapest tires I could find. Wire sticking out of my front Metzler Roadtec at 4000 miles. Heck with it. I'm getting the cheapest thing I can find. To my surprise I love these, should I say this tire. Bought the rear as well but not needed yet. I always check tire pressure, etc. Checklist before ride. Don't know why poor performance from Roadtec but absolutely love the Raven. Have about 1500 miles on it. Still looks new. Love performance. About time to change rear. Will review when I get some miles on it.

    Good but not great

    Comments On Dec 29, 2013:Burned through three sets of the Ravens with no problems. Until the last set the front blistered badly leaving bumps with air pockets. There was still about 30% tread to go. I ride aggressively and only get about 4k per set.( no matter what brand of tire). Yes the pressure is always correct. But the sides always wear out before the center. I am going to try the Shinko Advance.

    Exceptional value

    Comments On Feb 06, 2013:Bought both Shinko 009 Ravens for my Honda CBR1000F (sport-touring version of the CBR) about a week ago, and performance is excellent. Its cold weather here in Illinois still, chicken-strip capitol of the world (no hills, flat, straight roads) and i have already almost ridden to the edge of the tires with no slipping at all. Jake Wilson has the best price, and for cheap sport-touring tires these are extremely good. Very responsive, sensitive, and almost no roll resistance whatsoever. I didn't realize how much i was fighting with my last set of tires on the turns. Now sharp turns are effortless. The rubber does seem pretty soft for sport-touring, but people on forums are claiming to get 8k+ miles out of these. Time will tell, but for now i am grinning through every turn.

    I'm happy my sith set!

    Comments On Jan 14, 2013:These tires work! I ride year around in Missouri. I've ridden them in temps from the teens to the hundreds. NO PROBLEMS! I even rode them home in a freak snow storm, they aren't snow tires, but they got me home!
    Seriously, I've had NO cornering issues, even cornering hard in the rain. They hold a line well. The DO tend to grab the tar snakes though, so once you know that and prepare, you are fine!
    Great miles, I usually get ovewr 6k of HARD miles out of each set. I can't be happier!

    04 VFR800

    Comments On Sep 03, 2012:Not sure if this tire will ever wear out,have over 20K on it now and it looks great. the only issue I have it is very hard and does take some time to warm up. put when up to temp it holds the corners good. this is my second set. they hold up to the rough Texas roads a lot better then the pirelli's or pilot powers. and at half the price.

    You get what you pay for

    Comments On Jan 15, 2012:I took a chance on this set of shinko's and i was somewhat disappointed. The price is great and i didn't expect too much but i only got 4000-5000 miles out of the front tire. I was forced to replace the front when it needed the rear because it only had 10-15% left on the sides. plenty of meat left in the center but the sides were gone and i don't beat on the bike. Rear life was better than expected though. Ok, getting down to it, wet traction leaves a little to be desired but it was ok. Dry (warm) traction was good, cold was expectantly worse. It all depends on how you ride, but the rear wore very evenly.
    My advise, don't expect a cheap set of tires to be wonderful. They are good for the price but if you can afford to spend a few extra dollars, I would.

    Good tire , great price

    Comments On Aug 06, 2011:Well what can I say, this tire performed as well as 2ct and road smarts I have had in the past. I will no longer pay top $$ for a good tire. performance alone would be 4 star but when you look at value for money these are 5 star.
