Shinko Raven Front Tire
April 18, 2013(McAllen, TX)
Got a set of these tires for my Suzuki GSX750R. Havent been on but a couple hundred miles as I write this. So far there is nothing at all negative about these tires although they are just getting broken in and havent been in the rain or wet streets yet. Suspect I saved about 50+ dollars per tire from ordering than trying to find a set locally. Motorcycle Superstore is number one shopping location for me. Thanks.
Excellent Street Tires

An excellent, long-wearing street tire with great all-around game. On my RF600R, getting 12k typically on front, 9-10k perhaps rear. Prior to break in, takes bit more effort to lean in but as they wear they feel lighter & more nimble. For low cost, an incredible value. Look nice mounted too. Only thing I would mention on these 009s is when cold (50 or under) under very hard braking they can get squirely. Never slipped otherwise and feel nice. An amazing value.

When I bought My 05 hayabusa, it came with the shinko raven on the front, and a shinko stealth on the back. I bought the bike in June 2011, new tires on it when I rode it off the lot. The bike had 13,9XX on it, I have the same front tire on it still at 25,968, it still has about 4/32 of a tread on it after all them miles.

I am on my third rear and first front. For the cost of one rear PR-3 I can get a set of Ravens. I eat tires as I do a lot of heavy loaded touring/camping in the South west Utah and Colorado. 2010 Triumph Tiger 1050 and these are the tires for value and stable feel for me, rain or shine. Tire wear patterns are the best.

Im on the fence about whether I will buy another. Value and performance are good, I ride year round and the traction is good in all conditions. However, after only a year, the tire started showing signs of delamination. In multiple areas underneath the large tread block, the rubber started to bulge. The bulges would be pushed down with my finger and I could feel them contact the main strutural core of the tire. The manufacturer HAS offered to warranty it, but I'm not sure if Ill buy another.

I can't speak of wet, or tread yet! Overall it's a great tire. It took a couple of miles to get the traction working well, then Zooooom

Almost got 1000 miles on them and still have some nubs. Very stable, falls into corners with no effort. Best bang for the buck. I'll be back!

Tire leans when you first put them on but over all good tire when broken in don't ride in rain until then

I've only had the tire mounted for a few weeks, seems very good so far
