I have put on about 700 miles on the tire, so far it has great turning ability, good ware, If i get 7000 miles from it I would be pleased, but have not ridden that much yet. So far I am very pleased, Ill let you know by the end of summer if it is wearing well. For the price I can not complain, the last Metzeler tire I had cracked along the sidewalls very displeased had tons of tread left, so the price difference makes this tire for me more desirable.
Gone through a few sets of the Shinko 705 on my 09 Suzuki DR650. Smooth and reliable tire. Corners well; good wet weather traction. Ridden on some long trips (5,000 mile) with -0- problems. Likely a best buy at the price.
I'm on my second front, my first blistered at 7,221, the one i have on now has 7,950 and looks great. they must hove fixed the problem. i ride year around here in Colorado, tire works good in everything but snow.
Great tire. Warms up fast and sticks great. Only drawback is they on last 3000-3500 miles on my Concours 1400 the way I ride. Three rears to one front tire. Going with the -011 Verge next time. My friend who I ride with runs them on his GSXR 1000 and he gets 4500 miles on his rear tire.
I'm. Very disappointed with this tire I tried everything in the book but I could not get the tire to seal! I don't know what else to do but to take it off the rim n send it back! Not sure how many people have had this issue however if you did n u had to go with another tire if appreciate someone letting me know what tire did u buy cause the Shinko 712 although was a decent price just did not want to seal on my 19" front spoke rim for my 1998 Yamaha V-Star 650 Custom Motorcycle! Are does anyone have any tips on making a Tubeless Tire seal! Was thinking of putting a tube inside but not sure if a tube would fit a tubeless tire!
