Great tire, great price

Comments about Shinko 705 Motorcycle Tire:
My '75 Yamaha DT400 spends most of its time on the road, so I needed a tire that would work 90%/road, 10%/dirt. I am happy with my choice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my fourth set of Shinko 705's
from Langley, BC
Run these tires on a DL1000. Does everything great. Good on pavement, gravel and in the rain. Get 12,000 km on rear. Never wear out a front as they are so inexpensive I change the front when I change the rear.
How can you not try these tires

These tires are about 1/3 to 1/4 the price of the Avon Distenza tires I was going to get for my WR250X. The 120/90 front is definitely larger than the 110/70 battleaxe street tire it is replacing. It makes the bike look a bit like a TW200. It is not a radial tire. The front end also feels heavier and the bike does not feel as nimble. I may lower the forks a bit to adjust the rake/trail and see if that helps. It is a bit louder on pavement, but not horrible. But at this price, I simply had to give it a go.I wanted to ride and explore the dirt trails in the desert around here in NV. I ride like an old man, so these tires seem to do fine so far. Not a whole lot of tire options for dual sporting this bike with the tiny 17" rims.

This is my first street Shinko tire , but have used them on my off road KTM for a while. I have only had these on my GS for about 100 miles . I think they're going to work well . We'll have to see how they wear. If they hold up as well as their knobbys , I'll be happy
