great quality
normally i wouldn't cut corners on something like tires, but after reading so many good reviews,I couldn't resist the price!

I AM SO GLAD I DID !

excellent quality, stick to the roads as well or better then my originals or my previous BIG name tires.

Put about a thousand miles on the so far, including and 850 mile 2 day road trip and couldn't be happier.

If the wear/ longevity is equal to my previous two sets of tires on this bike, i will buy them again. And I have no reason to believe that they wont !

I also read that shinko; bought out the yokahama motorcycle tire formulas/equipment etc.... so basically your getting a brand name for half the price !

JUST DO IT YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED

so far so good
It is a nice looking tire - for my 2007 KLR 650. It is the 4th back tire that I have purchased, as they last ~5K miles. I opted for the more expensive tires (Pirelli) for the last 2 replacements, so this time decided to spend about 1/2 as much and see how it goes. It is somewhere between an 80-20 or 90-10, which is fine for me as most of my driving is commuting on back roads east of San Diego. I have about 1,000 miles on the tire and so far so good.

Great ADV bike tire
I've used these for years on my KTM 990, and just recently started using them on my BMW R1200GSA. They work well enough in the dirt for 100s of miles of Baja dirt "roads" and well enough on the street that I treat them just like street tires. I've not yet accidentally spun the rear wheel on a corner exit. Deliberately, yes, accidentally no. A very predictable street tire. All of the ones I've bought recently have been radials too! My original 705s a few years ago were bias ply, which gives them a nice durable sidewall, but reduces carcass flexibility and therefore loses a little grip on rough pavement, and also increases tire weight. I like the radials.

Got the tires broken in with about 700 miles on them currently. They are a bit louder than the Conti Attack2s that I had mounted previously, but they appear to hold the road well. Haven't really tried them for long distance on dirt roads, or in the rain yet, so I'll have to see how they do.

Good tire for the price
Picked the Shinko 705 tires for my 2000 BMW R1150GS primarily for the price but now that i have them, that isn't the only reason to buy them. Fairly quiet, good traction on pavement wet and dry, not bad on dirt roads, not too good in mud but a good all-around tire. Rivals my previous Tourance tires. Haven't had them long enough for a good evaluation on mileage.

I do not have very many miles on them yet. I am impressed with how smooth the ride is with them. Just getting them scrubbed in but they seem to corner well also. That's all for now, will re evaluate in a couple of thousand miles or so.

The Shinko 705 rear wears out every 3k miles - that's alright for me as I really like its characteristics on both pavement and dirt - ideal for the riding I like to do, and not overly priced. Front tire gets changed every 6k. If you ride pavement only, you can extend the mileage before changing - still great tires.

good price, good reviews, first time buyer
Ken H on Sep 19, 2018
I just installed this tire, and maybe got a bad one. It literally caught on fire going down the interstate at 75-80 MPH, in less than 25 miles. Not sure what I did wrong during installation but it sat on the bike for two days didn't lose air and was ready for a road trip may be just a bad tire. Will try again. Once burned twice shy, lol.

I ride mostly paved roads with some dirt roads once in a while. The Shinko 705 work great for me because they last a lot longer than more aggressive dirt oriented tires on the street and still are very capable when I ride the odd logging road.

I use these tires on a Versys 650. Have been from Baja, Mexico to Portland, Maine on them. I average 12,000 miles on the front and 6,000 on the rear. Good in the rain and adequate for mild off-road. I haven’t found anything better for my bike and the price is very reasonable.

I have a Ural sidecar rig. The tire size I'm interested in is 110/80-19 which is designated as a front tire. I would like to use this size tire for my rear drive wheel on my rig. I am wanting to do this to have a smaller wheel diameter than stock to up the engine RPM at highway speeds. I have read that the Urals use two different size wheels. 18 and 19 inchs wheels. The 18 inch is able to go faster than the 19" due to higher engine rpm. Mine is 19 inch and can barely hold 55 mph. I only want 60.Can you tell me if using the front as a rear would be okay or not.Thank you for your help.
country3wheeler on Nov 25, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It is not recommended to use a front tire on a rear tire application. The shape is completely different and can affect handling. In this case your bike is equipped with a side car, so the shape may not be as crucial. One thing to consider is, will the front tires have the load index to handle the weight of your Rig? Are parts readily available for the bike, it would be easier to replace a sprocket than a wheel.
If I'm buying a set does this mean I am buying a front and back tire? First time buying tires.

Is this tire tubed or tubeless, its listed under tubed?
null on Sep 15, 2010
BEST ANSWER: From the experience I just gained buying tires for tubed wheels I learnt, any tubeless tire should be able to be used with a tube.
I have a 1983 Honda XL600R. It originally came with tubed bias ply dual sport tires. Can I mount a tubeless tire on the rim, or will it leak through the spokes?
null on Jun 23, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! If you were to order the Shinko 705 Motorcycle Tire you would still need to run a tube in your tire.

This tire is listed as tubless and I need a tube type. Can I run this tire with a tube?
Rider Ron on Jul 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question. The designation of "Tube Type" means that the tire is made to hold air without a tube, but you can run a tube in the tire without a problem.
what is the difference between tubeless and tube type, and will a tubeless work on a tube type?
Arlin on Jun 22, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for writing in! Tube type requires a tube be used with a tire. You can use a tube in a tubeless tire, you just cannot run without a tube in a tube type tire.
I am considering this tire for my '98 Honda XR400R. It's street legal and I'd like to ride it primarily on road. It says the tire sizes are Front: 80/100 - 18 and Rear: 110/100 - 17. Can you tell me what size is compatible with my bike?
Johann on Jun 13, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Based on the tire sizes, these will not be compatible for your machine.
I know the manufacturer makes this tire in a 90/90-21 size but this is not an option on your website. Since this is a very common size for dual sport tires are you simply out of stock or do you just not carry that size?
null on Jun 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Good question! Looks like they do manufacture the tire in that size 90/90-21 but currently do not have available on site to order. We can try and put a push to get available on the site I have put a push on that size to include up on the site.
is this tire tubeless?
null on May 28, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! This can be used as a tube/tubless application.
I am interested in purchasing these tires for my bobber project, but want to make sure that the sizes listed here are compatible with my rim sizes. I am having a difficult time cross referencing tire and rim sizes.

front will be the 90/90-21 bias ply tire which would be mounted to a 1.6 x 21 spoke rim.

rear will be the 130/80-17 bias ply tire which would be mounted to a 2.17 x 17 spoke rim.

Thanks for any help.

Todd
todd on Apr 9, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes those sizes will work with those rims.
Hi
My front is a 100/90/19
Will this Shinko 110/80/19 work ok?
And should I run the radial instead of Bias ply on the front?
there is no radial option for the rear in the shinko (130/80/17)

bmw f-650gs

Thanks!
Russ
Got2Moto on Aug 11, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! We recommend to use the correct tire size for your bike as there may be clearance issues. It is important to use the same make-up of tire on the front and rear. If you are running a Bias-Ply in the year, you should run a Bias Ply in the front. If you have any further questions you can contact our sales team 7 days a week at 888-339-3888.
My bike, KZ400 calls for a 3.50 s18. I am looking at the 705 and 244 for my rear, the 244 says it fits does the 705? Also do they have a similar for my front which calls for 3.25 s18? Thank you!
DC on Apr 26, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, the 705 is not offered in the size you are looking for. The 705 and the 244 are not offered for your front. The Shinko 230 and 712 would work for your front 100/90/18.
Can I run a tubless tire on a dr350se standard rim?

I am considering the 21" front but I see it is tubless. Will that work on a '99 Suz DR350? Thanks
Cajuncowboy on Jan 27, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! The Shinko 705 Motorcycle Tire that your looking at will work on tube type and tubeless type rims.
