There aren't a lot of tire options for the pre-gen Ninja 250
Nate A on Aug 3, 2020
Have them on my other bike, ride ok and cheaper than others.<br />Found them easier to mount on the rim. That was on a goldwing.

Look nice and good price
Asim A on Jun 25, 2019
Looks like almost all the tires that fit the ninja 500 are bias ply. Considering that I don't feel the need to buy a more expensive tire. I needed a new set of tires for my first bike and these look like very similar construction to the pirelli demons. I actually prefer the traction pattern design more on these. Reviews are good and I am sure they will do fine.

Never ordered these tires before afyer reading comments thought i would try.
Darrin P on Oct 2, 2018
Tires looks nice, price was right, and reviews were good so why not try them. 👍
Carlos J on Sep 13, 2018
Ordered this rear tire for my 2000 Kawasaki ninja 500R/EX this size is surprisingly hard to find especially at this amazing price! With typical riding season coming to an end here in Ohio I wanted a quick buy that I could trust but that wouldn’t break the bank so late in the season! Fast shipping means I’ll be able to throw them on and soak up the rest of the season!
Derrick W on Aug 20, 2018
Great Deal!
Cody M on Aug 15, 2018
These are the tires on my ninja 250. And i like them. They are a good quality for the price. And they are pretty much yokahoma

Very good tires for the price. They stick like duct tape in the heat and are very capable in the rain! You can scrape pegs with the best of them!

I was looking for a tire with good reviews at a reasonable price. This tire was actually my second choice but I am extremely happy with the price and everyone seems to like them.

Can this tire be used on a spoke rim?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question! The Shinko SR741 Motorcycle Tire is a tubeless tire, you might be able to mount this to a spoke rim but we do not recommend this for safety reasons.

Will this fit a 2017 1200 sportster low?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question. According to our records, OE specs for this bike are 120/70-18 front and 150/70-17 rear. Technically, these would mount on to your bike, however I would recommend comparing the load index and speed rating before ordering. That is very important for ride-ability and safety. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.

Best bang for the buck. Have a 2000 Buell Blast with odd sizes tires. Went up a size on the rear with no fitment issues. The bike handles well with no issues. They also were very close on the balance with only 1/4 oz needed on the rear.

Best tire for the price
I can feel the grip with these tires while swerving. I got both the tires for less than $75 each. They have downgraded my MPG by 5 miles, but overall I have no doubts to give a 5-star rating.

I am writing this review after riding 2000 miles with these tires. They still look new and have no grip issues at all after 2000 miles too.

New motorcycle design
My company's hub center steered motorcycle was originally expected to have a 140/70 rear tire, but a 130 was recently decided to be a better fit for this lightweight machine. In order to determine whether the rear wheel should be 16 or 17 inches, a suitable sport bike tire was needed in both sizes. The Shinko SR741 is available in 130/80-16 and 130/70-17, and is ideal in terms of tread pattern and compound, with the 17 likely to become standard. Also, the SR741 is a nice match for the Avon 110/70-16 being used up front.
