    Comments about Shinko 520 Motorcycle Tire:

    I purchased these tires to replace a pair of Bridgestone 404's on a KTM 525 dualsport. I live in NW, GA and during a ride I see a diverse section of trails from rocky, hard pack, sandy, muddy, and slick greasy clay as well as pavement. The 520 intermediates seamed like they should be able to handle these broad sections of terrain.

    Upon receiving the tires, I was immediately skeptical of the side lugs on the rear tire. The tech who installed the tires said the same thing "don't lean over to far or you will rip those knobs off."

    The Good:
    I have 300 miles on the tires now, about 130 of those on the pavement. The tires are holding up great with little wear if any, and no lugs ripped or missing on the front or rear. The rear tire hooks up great, provides much confidence when exiting corners, and allows for great throttle steering control.

    The Bad:
    The front tire is good for nothing, does not hook up on any of the aforementioned surfaces. I have tried airing the tire down and up. I have messed with the front fork settings, but the front tire does not like biting into surfaces if its dry, wet, or rocky. I have close to ZERO confidence that the front tire will hold in a corner. Planning on swapping out the front for a softer compound.

        I ride in very hard, rocky trails. This tire has held up better than the more expensive tires. It rip like other tires have before on me.
