    I have a love hate relationship with the 804
    Overall 2.5 stars
    I gave this tire a good long run and there are things I like and things I don’t. Installed new and removed at 8000 miles on my 2008 KLR650 with a surprising amount of tread left.

    Likes:
    Wears like iron. Had 8000 miles with a lot of paved highway use. Keep it on the low 30 psi range for pavement for long life.
    Handles on rode very well, wet or dry, better than it looks like it would and the 60/40 designation would suggest. Didn’t vibrate or make much sound on pavement. Turns great, is light to steer, and very flickable on road. Decent true off-road performance. Mud and sand very average at best as expected.

    Dislikes: I found this tire absolutely awful on gravel roads, which is primarily why I bought the KLR and this tire to ride on. Feels like the front was on marbles. Even aired down to 20 psi. It never felt planted or solid on any gravel. Whether it be graded, primitive, deep gravel or any other combo, it just didn’t work for me. I had a Shinko 705 before the 804 and it was infinitely more sure footed on gravel roads of all types even though it looks like a street tire.

    Only way I’d recommend this tire is if you like the aggressive look of the big block design, but don’t actually go off road.

    My 804 after 8000 miles. Lots of tread left but was starting to cup like they all do eventually.

    Great front tire for dry ADV use
    This tire is perfect for large adventure bikes that need to be comfortable on the highway but also relatively capable offroad. I did notice some wandering in wet conditions with this tire, but give the balance between on-road and offroad this tire strikes I'd say it's decent. Easy to mount and quiet on the freeway, the only thing I'd change about the tire is that I'd like to see a bit more siping for grip in wet conditions.

    1400 miles in less than a week, great
    Put this front tire on an Africa Twin, with a Motoz Tractionator back tire that I already had. Put almost 1400 miles in 5 days on a trip to the Hill Country in Texas. It was hot, and it rained several days. Mostly pavement, with a good mix of gravel, sand, and dirt roads mixed in.
    This combo worked very good. Never felt unstable in the rain, and it held good on the dirt roads. Didn't ever feel like it would slide out.
    Only thing that felt unstable was steering, but most likely due to the load I had packed. I'm still learning on that.
    It does howl (they both do), but where the Motoz has a low howl, the Shinko has a high pitched whine. Sounds like my jeep with mud tires. I don't mind the noise. Sort of to be expected, really.
    I don't see any noticeable wear, but it wasn't that long of a trip. When I do wear it out, I'll probably buy another one. Haven't used any other off road tires, like TKC or Heidenau, to compare it to. But going by other reviews, I won't bother trying them. This tire worked great.

    So far so good!
    I put the 804 and 805 on my KLR after doing extensive research on dual sport tires, and I have been very happy. I went with a more aggressive off road tire as I am newer to the dirt scene and wanted additional support while learning off road skills. Traction on dirt, rock, mud, etc. has been great. I had heard that some people felt there was a little slide to the side in mud due to the horizontally/parallel aligned treads, but I have not experienced any of that. Going with a more aggressive dirt tread I assumed I would be giving up a little bit of performance on the street, but I have been very impressed with their pavement performance as well. I think the larger blocks flex less allowing for more forceful cornering. Great on and off road for an unbeatable price!

    Poor choice
    Decent life, but I expected better. Good forward and braking traction, but mostly terrible off-pavement. Very nervous, poor side-to-side traction off-pavement.

    OK-ish on pavement, but not great in the rain and not nearly as confidence-inspiring as other dirt-leaning options.

    I'm a fan of other Shinko tires, but for the high cost, I expected far better.

    Better Then Expected
    Wasn't expecting these tires to be as quiet and smooth as they are. Very easy to mount too. So far very happy with my new tires.

    Great Tire! 3rd Set
    I have used the 804 for the past three years. I highly recommend them. I get 6000 to 9000 miles from them.I mostly ride dirt and use pavement to get me to a riding area and sometimes for fun. On pavement it works great, little to no noise, no rolling of side wall, hold pavement well and stops great. Off road it is a tough tire, tracks well on soft and intermediate terrain, handles rocks well. The only down side is it does tend to push in deep sand. I don't have any real wet road experience since I live in the desert.

    Shinko 804 on my Versys X 300
    Replaced the stock tires on my Versys X with the Shinko 804/805 tires. The 804 front stays planted where ever I point it. Handles extremely well in loose soil, mud, rain and even snow. On asphalt the traction and handling is impressive the bike stays steady with no sketchy action. I've had these tires on my larger ADV bikes and the tire wear is impressive so on this new mini ADV bike they might last 7,500 or more miles!
