Shinko 718 Motorcycle Tire. The directional tread on this tire is design for excellent adhesion in both wet and dry conditions. Shinko uses an Aramid belt for added stability under high loads. This is an H-rated, tubeless, 4 ply nylon carcass. (21" tire is not 4-ply.)
Specifications and Options
|Front / Rear
|Tube / Tubeless
|Bias / Radial
I am thinking about trying this radial tire on the rear with a pirelli bias already on the front, would mixing radial and bias cause a problem?

Thanks for your question! Unfortunately you would not be able to run a radial with a bias tire, this can cause safety issues with the machine's handling.

the problem is radials require a wider rim so sizing changes or rim changes may be needed
