Happy for those who are happy, BUT I'm not

Bought a set for 03 KLR 650 based on reviews. I should have heeded the sales guy expression and "you get what you pay for." I worked with air pressures, shock settings but I never found a compromise. Wet, hot, cold, high speed (should note I have a tall windshield, hard cases and sit further back) scared my undershorts to hide. I was thinking of putting on a steering dampener. Tread life is good for such a soft and gummy rubber compound. I need to buy a new front tire to sell the bike. If stored, I lower the pressure. Stock pressure is not a good idea. Always had to add 5 psi minimum otherwise freaked me out. Why buy a new front tire? After two years and 5K, the side walls are cracking. Not happy.

Tire walks side to side

Bad engineering design, tire is dangerous at highway speeds. The tire walks side to side creating a wobble at highway speeds above 60mph. Had high hopes for this tire, was a good price but I guess the old saying is true "you get what you pay for". So I wasted my $ and got to order more tires.

Shenko tires

I decided to buy the Shinko to replace the old Metzlers on a R80rt. I've put about 1800 miles on the bike since then and have no negatives to report. I recently recommended a set for a friend's R100gs and once again, no issues. They are very well priced and perform admirably. I would not shy away from using them on any make/model/year mc. Great product!

Shinko 705's

This a great tire bargain. I put these on my 1000 V Strom and am very pleased with their performance on and off road. They can feel a little buzzy on the highway and they want to fall in on the turns but only when new. Extremely good value.

Is it round?

Had this on my Super Tenere. It felt like it wasn't round. At speed it wobbles horribly and wanders at low speed. I had it re-balanced twice just to make sure it was correct. It seemed to stick good in the corners. I didn't push it too hard in the wet but traction seemed ok. I removed it after 3K miles and it had plenty of tread left. Just couldn't take anymore of the wobbles and wandering.

705 on xr650l

I have went about 500 miles on the road, section roads (gravel) and last night got caught in a bit of rain. 65 on the gravel no problem, excellent dry cornering, but this tire absolutely sucks on the wet road. It got really loose pulling off the highway to get gas and when I got to town riding on a 30mph road I slowed down to about 20 to take a gentle right turn and the back end just went right out from under me and I hit the pavement, nothing hurt. I just do not think what I read about wet riding went far enough on describing the stability on wet riding...it Stinks. Think I will take my grooving iron and notch them some and hope that improves wet riding conditions. I do not think you can be cautious enough on wet pavement with this tire.

Love the 705's

I love 'em. I live down 1 mile of private, raggedy road. Got clay, mud, rocks and sugar sand. Hairy in the sugar and red clay, but work fine in the mud. Easy to break the rear loose in the dirt, but plenty of traction. Love them on the road. So much quieter and smoother than the Kendas I used before. I've had no problems with them sliding in the wet, even when cornering rather aggressively. 4800 miles on front and rear set. Rear will be replaced in the next 1000. Front may last another 4800. Can't beat the price.

Good Tire for 50/50

Put a set on my V Strom 650 and am real satisfied. I ride daily about 40% on road 60% gravel road. Plenty comfortable and stable on pavement and stable enough on gravel. Not a knobby but a good compromise for me. I feel comfortable 50-60 mph on semi smooth gravel road. Had some on my KLR that got good mileage but so far only about 750 miles so can't rate them here. Haven't taken them on serious off road but then this is a V Strom not a KLR. Haven't road in the rain as it hasn't rained but once in last 6 weeks and the road was dry by the time I road. It is hard to try anything else knowing how good these are for the money.

Great tires!@

I bought these tires to replace my Shinko 244 for mostly street use. They work great. I lined up the dot with the valve stem and they ride really smooth. I will buy these again if they last for a while. I have them on a DRZ400sm with 18/21 wheelset on. I like the way that they can switch between pavement and light off road with no hiccups. Urban assault tires all the way!!!!!

Shinko 705 on a 650 V-Strom

So far very satisfied with the tire. Mostly ridden on the street, handles very well in corners, no noticeable noise, and tracks very well. Some light off road on gravel and dirt. Hard to break loose in packed gravel, felt good!

705 series front tire for klr650

I have over 10,000 miles on the front tire I put on going to Alaska. No problems and the tire still looks new. I was loaded down with camping gear, clothes, food, etc.. It was so top heavy it would pivot on the kick stand and come over if you weren't very careful. I replaced the rear in Fairbanks and it still had a couple of thousand miles left but caution ruled. The KLR650 looked like Jed Clampet it was so overlaoded but the Shinko's never let me down.

shinko 705 review

I have been using these on my 2005 R1200gs for years now and I can not tell the difference between these and any other similar tire to include Tourance, Anakee 2, and Battlewings.
