        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.

        Comments about Shinko 700 Motorcycle Tire:

        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.

        Comments about Shinko 700 Motorcycle Tire:

        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.

        Replaced Stock

        Comments about Shinko 700 Motorcycle Tire:

        I recently had the tube-type installed in the rear of my Suzuki DR650. I replaced the stock Trailwing and put only about 500 miles on it. The road noise is very noticeable, almost loud, and it seems to be wearing fairly quickly. I probably use it for 70% on-road. It feels more stable than stock on packed dirt and gravel and it seems to have plenty of traction for tight turns on pavement. On softer dirt/mud, it feels much less stable than stock. It is much easier to peel out and can cause the rear-end to zigzag. If put to good use on dirt, it makes for fun drifting around turns.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Fast delivery, reinforced packaging. Easy-to-use site. Reviews are helpful and the search works very well.

            You can mount a tubeless tire on a tube type rim as long as you use a tube with no adverse effects..

            Thank you for your question. Yes you can mount tubeless tires on a spoked wheel with an inner tube. There is no disadvantages, it actually opens up the doors to a larger selection of tires. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at Sales@bikebandit.com, Live Chat or by phone toll free at 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.

            Thanks for your question.

            You can use a 3.00X21 for the front and 3.5x18 for the rear.

            They do not have a 3.5x18 for the rear so I would select and diferent tire that does offer both of these sizes for a tread match.

          shinko 700:
          I have a 2002 XR650L. Rear rim is 18in. I believe it needs 4.60 18 tire, tube type. It looks like this tire may work. I currently have a MX tire and its killing me on the highway, will this tire maintain speed on highway of around 80mph? And will I be able to lean and stop on the street with this tire on highway? I want a tire that has a long street life.

            Thanks for your question! The biggest tire offered in the Shinko 700 Motorcycle Tire would be the 5.10 - 17 which would be a 130/90-17, unfortunately this would be alot smaller than what your machine requires.

        • Q:

          Will these tires work on my bike?

          It's an '02 XR650R with stock wheels. I'm not sure if I can run tubless tires or not, and also not sure of the conversion from 90/90/21 into English measurements.

          Thank you.

            A:

            Thanks for your question! With the tire your looking at this would work on both tube type and tubeless rims, for your model you would still need to run the tube, the 90/90-21 would be a 3.00 - 21 in the standard sizing.
