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.

Tire number four...

Comments On Sep 16, 2014:Just bought rear number four for my KLR... I've put nearly 50,000 miles on my 2011 since bought new in Nov. 11. After the oem needed replacement, I used the 705. Inexpensive, long lasting, and they just work. Not too spiffy in mud or wet grass, but they've brought me out of the mountains during a downpour, they've taken me through deep sand and across a river bottom, and continue to take me 110 miles a day to work and back. I have yet to get less than 10,000 miles on a rear... even went 30,000 on a front before replacing it. For the price... a fine tire... just stay out of the mud and off of the grass!

Nice tire on my 650 VStrom

Comments On Sep 12, 2014:I have this tire on the back of my 650 VStrom, and I like it. It's more aggressive looking than the stock tire, but not too crazy.

Happy Camper

Comments On Apr 03, 2014:I bought a set of these for a 4,500km adventure ride from Adelaide to Canberra and back on my Honda NC700S. Approximately half was on sealed roads, 40% on formed dirt roads and 10% on dirt tracks and off-piste. The front was amazing - never once did I think it was about to let go. The rear though was pretty easy to step out of line, but probably more a reflection of the weight bias on the NC700S. They were great on high-speed dirt roads, but as expected, challenging in deep sand. On sealed roads they're quiet enough, and allowed me to drag the pegs through a brilliant 70km stretch of switchbacks. I'd rate these tyres 60/40 sealed/unsealed. They've now done 6,000km and the rear probably has another 1,500km in it till the wear bars. I expect the front will last two or three rear tyre changes.

Great rear tire for my Versys

Comments On Nov 25, 2013:I purchased this tire in September for my Versys. So far I've put just under 3,000 miles on it and it's holding up really well. I've done some single-track, quiet a bit of dirt roads, and a lot of pavement and it handles it all really well. Will be buying this tire again when it's time for another.

Great. Give them a try

Comments On Oct 02, 2013:I have just fitted the Shinko's front and rear to my 06 DL1000. I have had Meltzer's mostly and I have found the Shinko's up there with them. They are great in the dirt as we get into the mountain on dirt roads and they have good feel on the bitumen. The only complaint is the front is a bit noisy, but I had a set of Pirelli's fitted a while back and they made noise too. Don't know what sort of distance I will get, but for the price, even shipped to Australia, you can't go wrong.

great street tire

Comments On Sep 04, 2013:Love this tire on pavement. I have put just over 3000 miles and still have lots of tread. I ride about 80 percent pavement 20 percent dirt. Smooth and very predictable on the road.
Off road is another story, back tire is ok, lots of spin as would be expected, The front tire is scary off road, very unpredictable. Front end will wash out even at low speeds. It is fine on hard pack but not on any type of loose soil. I will be replacing the front before it wears out.

Awesome bang for the buck

Comments On Jul 16, 2013:I'm on my second rear and first front tire of this particular model, and I love them. They're great 80/20 tires, and since I commute on my bike, I appreciate the good tread life I get from them. I got around 4000 of almost all highway miles, and there was still probably another 500 left in it when I replaced it. When they're new, they work great for dirt roads and hard pack trails. Once you're in loose terrain like sand or mud, you'll want something with actual knobs on it, but as an all around tire, it's tough to beat these.

Great Value

Comments On Jul 13, 2012:I run Michelin tires on just about everything I own, so it was only natural to put Michelin Anakees on the Wee Strom when I bought it (used). Wasn't overly impressed. A friend suggested I try the Shinkos. They held up just as well, can drag the occasional peg (pretty impressive for dual sport tires) and were reasonably priced. I'm back for more. Even started using the 011 model on my FJR with good results. If I had to knit pick, it would be that they seem to harden up and lose a little traction as they age/wear. Seems to be easier to skid the rear tire when they've got some miles on them. But for the price, you can change them sooner then the brand name tires and stil come out ahead.
