Comments about Shinko 700 Motorcycle Tire:
I got this tire for my 07 Honda XR 650L. It mounted up very easy. The tread is pretty decent, good street riding. I would go easy on the corners before you break it in, a little slippery.I use my bike for pleasure and commute .It's on the street 70% of the time, as for dirt good for fire trails. Over all its not a bad tire for the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Seems like a good tire for the price.

See all my reviews
I had a pair of Shinko 705s on a DL650 V-Strom, that I no longer have. I was pretty happy with them. So I thought I would try the 700s on my DR-Z400S. Seems like a good choice for a dual sport that spends a little more time on the street than offroad. Which is why I chose them. I commute on the DR-Z a couple times a week. Went on a 62 mile dual sport ride on highways, unpaved roads, and access roads after installing them myself. Transitions well from street to dirt, and back. Not an aggressive knobby, but then again, it gives a good ride on the street. Pretty happy so far. Don't know how they'll wear yet. But I got good life out of the Shinko 705 tires I had on my V-Strom. So I expect good things from the 700 series.

good for street, bad for mud
By XR250L guy
I bought these for a road trip on my XR250L. Worked great for 100% street riding. Looked like they would be decent off-road and was I wrong! Like riding on ice on any surface except flat level hard pack or gravel. No traction whatsoever. I fell multiple times for no good reason. The tire seemed soft and easy to mount so I didn't want to air down for fear of pinch flats. If you only ride gravel or dry hardpack off road this tire will probably work ok for you. Otherwise go for something more aggressive.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Soft tire that grips on and off road.
from Phoenix, AZ
I prefer D606s for the off road but I put the 700 on the rear of my XR650L for a street test. It passed with flying colors. This is a soft low end tire but I loved the performance on WA forest roads and on hard or loose desert in AZ. I ride aggressively and it wore down quick. The side walls fold in when installing making it easy for pinch flats. Recommend ultra heavy tube for this one.
