    Comments about Shinko 712 Motorcycle Tire:

    Nice sticky rubber at a very affordable price. Much better quality than other tires at its price range, like Cheng Shin (junk). I have previously used Michelin pilot power, Bridgestone battlax BT016, and Pirelli diablo corsa, so I am familiar with high end street tires for comparison.

      Comments about Shinko 712 Motorcycle Tire:

      I bought the Shinko to replace a Dunlop Roadsmart that picked up a nail and couldn't be fixed. I didn't want to spend another big chunk for the tire plus mounting so, based on advice from the Maximum Suzuki forum, I made the leap.

      I could not be happier with this tire! I just finished a four day ride that brought my mileage up to 5000 on this tire and there is very little center or side center wear (from crowned roads) to be seen. I would definitely buy this tire again, and as my rear tire goes, I be replacing it with a Shinko too.

          [...] the tire is just 'broken in' and handles corners well. rode in a rainstorm yesterday, and it performed very much to my liking. I would reccomend this tire to anyone with a '87 ex 500 kawi.

            difference between the 712 and 777 models. ive just recieved the 712 for my hd rk and noticed the load was a 67H vs the load of the 777 at 73v plus the 777 is a 6 ply vs 4 ply on the 712. i'm thinking the 777 would be a much better tire. your thoughts would be appreciated.
