    Shinko 700 Dual Sport

    Have a pair of 700 Shinko's on a DR 650 with about 500 miles now. So far they are great on the pavement and dirt roads. Also put 75 miles on in heavy rain with no problems. Seem to be a great tire for the money.

    Very good tire

    I went from a Shinko 700 to a Kenda 270 rear tire and then went back to the 700. It's a much better tire for me. Stability and cornering and mileage are all superior. On sharp mountain corners the Kenda walked sideways. A little spooky. The 700 holds it's ground. Mileage on the rear is 5-6 thousand.

    it's ok if you're on a budget.

    With it I can ride a wheelie and drift sideways! It's very soft. If you ride hard onroad it wears fast. It does get decent traction off road though.

    XR650L rear lasted 4600 miles

    The Shinko 700 4.80 x 18 tire I put on the rear of my XR650L last summer, I rode it 28 psi, I'd say 85% road, 15% gravel road. It handles good on the road and not too bad in the dirt, it's no Knobby but there is traction. I had no problems on the fire roads and single track, only time it got wet was creek crossings so don't know too much about the wet traction, that's why the low score there. Lasted 4,600 miles on the back of my XRL, I tried the Shinko 2400 Golden Boy 5.10 x 18 to replace it with just to get the extra size, all in all a great tire for the money. MCSS always does right by me.

    Capable Tire - Fast Wear

    I bought this tire for my Suzuki DR650 and thought it was a very capable tire as I rode some very extreme conditions with it- was well as a daily commuter too. The 700 performed well in all conditions, but felt its worst on gravel surface. Not sure why but always felt it was on the verge of sliding out from under me. The tire didn't make the full riding season (March 15 - Nov 15) and while not babying the tire I didn't consider myself abusive to it either. Being my first Dual Sport bike I imagined I would do more off road travels vs. highway miles, but found myself with a considerable amount of time daily commuting with the bike so that may also be a factor. I replaced it with a Shinko 705 which I feel greatly improved the handling on asphalt vs the 700. Not sure if I would buy this again unless my needs changed. Its a very capable tire but didn't handle regular commuting.

    3,500 miles and still going

    The Shinko 700 is not a great on or off road tire, but it is good on AND off the road. Off road it has decent traction but not like the BFG trailwing it replaced, I have 3500 miles on the back tire and it's just starting to show the wear indicators. It might be a few hundred more miles before I replace it, I liked it so much I got a front tire to match.

    Works well

    Second rear 700 after nearly 3000m on the first, not bad for such an aggressive tire. Have not had much rain, but they worked well in the little rain we had.

    Shinko 700 rear tire XR650L

    I got this bike last year and have put 7000 miles on it. When I first needed a tire I got a Bridgestone Trailwing, it had excellent off road traction but only lasted 300 miles, I've got 1000 miles on the Shinko and still 10/32" tread remaining in the center of the tire. The on road performance is great, sticks like glue, off road however feels a little sketchy, maybe because I am not used to it yet, wet traction I gave a 4 but really havent rode in the wet yet, overall a good value.

    Good tire for the price

    This is a great tire got 6000 miles out of it. I ride a KLR 250. I used it mostly street. It will handle 70mph with no vibration.

    Shinko tire

    I have only had this on the bike, a 2006 Honda XR 650 L, for about a month. I gave it straight '4's, but that is its rating "so far". I am quite pleased with it at this point, having done some woods riding and desert riding, as well as pavement. It does everything expected of it so far. Have not had any wet pavement riding yet. I tried this tire for it's economy. It looks great, and so far is proving to be the best choice of many tires that this bike has had.

    Yamaha TW200 Front Tire

    700 tubeless 130/80 rear tire for the front of my TW200. I E-mailed Shinko USA and got a quick and through reply, “Use a reverse rotation on the front but it is not real important in this case”. It acted a little odd right at first but within a few miles settled right down. I only have 130 street miles on now and the rubber tips have not worn off yet but I do like the tire. It handles predictably in the corners and is much quieter than the OEM tire. No dirt of wet riding yet.

    2006 klx 250s

    Have this tire on my 06 KLX 250S; they work really well on pavement but you will bust your tail on gravel roads anything above 30 mph around corners. Wet grass or even dry grass when turning, stay off the throttle but straight lines offroad is ok.

    Shinko 700 dual sport tire

    Used as a front tire on my Yamaha TW 200. (currently at 24000+ miles and counting) Is stable, quiet and surefooted so far. Am using the bike year round in northern Ohio so it sees every nasty weather condition possible. Have no idea as to tread life, but so far after several hundred miles, is holding up well. No sketchiness even in the snow and slop. Very predictable handling, braking etc. Much better than stock or the last replacement tire!

    Seems good

    I have about 1000 miles on the rear shinko 700. So I cannot yet rate the tread life. Seems to be a great tire for the price except the cornering at slow speed is not as stable as the stock trailwing on a dr650. Might buy another type of tire next time, but will remember this one in case nothing else suits my fancy. I would buy it again but I just want to try other tires for the fun of it. I bought the thinnest rear tire.

    Great Value, Long Life on 08 KLR650

    I've put on about 3k mi. on this tire, expect to get close to 5k based on current tread. My bike is mostly a good weather commuter with weekend camping/riding in the summer. I don't get too crazy on dirt or street. This is a great dual sport tire for the price. Don't compare to an all-street or knobbie tire, obviously it gives up a little on both ends to function well for both. About to buy another rear and my first front so I have fresh shoes for next season!
