Shinko 009

This is my first set on my 10 Z-1000 sometimes during cornering I punch it more than I should and I have full confidence in these darn tires. What a deal.

Love my Shinko Raven Tires!

I presently ride a Suzuki 1250FA, which is a reasonably heavy sport tourer with a lot of torque. The OEM tires were not adequate, so were changed for the Shinko Raven 009 set that are now on the bike. I have about 3500 miles on the Shinkos so far, and absolutely recommend them. I am running them at 39 front, 41 rear and am very happy with their grip, both under hard acceleration and in the twisty bits where I enjoy powering out of the apex... very stable, NO headshake, and quiet on the highway at speed. I have not had the chance to try them in really heavy wet conditions, but got caught in a couple of thunderstorms a couple of weeks ago that did allow me to experiment with the cornering and braking grip in a controlled manner... They performed as well as, if not better than the PR2s I've been running on my previous Bandit. Based on my experiences with them, both of my sons now have a set in their garage waiting for the next opportunity to change tires! A truly excellent combination of quality, performance and value. This review is equally true of the 009 Raven Rear I installed at the same time! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! With the MC Superstore bonus of excellent pricing, shipping and service!

Raven front tire on Concours 14

The Raven handles very good & tracks well in the rain. I have run Michelin PR2'S,PR3'S,PR4'S & the Raven is Just as good. The other rating by A C14 owner said the Raven may have "aggravated this problem" when stating a handlebar wobble. If the wobble was already there then it's not the tire. The C14 is very well known for steering stem bearings wearing causing a wobble & no tire will correct this. The bearings need tightening or replacement. The Raven falls into turns easily & holds a nice line. Great tire for 1/3 the price of others that are no better !.

Handlebar death wobble

Put this tire on the front of my concours 14, which is a heavy bike, and may have aggravated this problem. As soon as the tire was mounted, I noticed the handlebars would wobble at around 40 mph. I actually took the wheel back to the bike shop to make sure it was balanced, and they double checked, and confirmed the balance and pressure were correct, so... I thought after a few hundred miles, maybe the tire will wear in, and balance out. After 1000 miles, the wobble is less pronounced. But still there... So either the tire is defective, or more likely, I'm thinking it's caused by the vertical tread groove right down the center of the tire... I think this is a design flaw for a front tire... It probably wouldn't matter if a tire with a center groove were mounted on the rear, but on a heavy bike in front... Probably not a good idea... For my next front tire... I'll make sure it doesn't have a groove down the center... Anybody else have this issue with this tire??

Shinko Raven

I've run these tires on my custom CBX for a few years, I love them. A great value. The latest set was for a customer's ZX6R. He called to thank me for recommending these tires. He's very happy with them too. I tell everyone that will listen to buy these tires. Hard to beat for the money. J.R. CBX-tras LLC

Review for the "normal" rider

I ride back and forth to work rain, shine and cold,( 8 mo. of the year )and also take a long trip. I put a Raven front tire on last spring and put 6500 mi. on it. The tire is the best bang for the buck IMO. It did great on dry and wet days and I even took it up a fire road once or twice. It still has a good amount of tread and I expect to get another year out of it. It's a great commuter and touring tire. I plan on putting a rear on this spring.

Buy The Set, Whatever The Price!

My bike handles beautifully, a big improvement. Very solid in the curves, excellent in the wet and the bike goes exactly where I point it. Very satisfied!

Great tire, durability stability and performance

I have the rear tire and got the front tire to match now. I love the way these tires ride. A smooth round profile makes it easy to keep lines in a turn. I broke these in doing safety course manuevers over and over again and these things were awesome. Shipping is fast from Motorcycle Superstore as well. Excellent service and selection.

good tires for good price

Brought theses and put on '98 GSXR. They look good and handle well. I had to ride in rain for a week cause car was in shop and had no problem with grip. Only put 3 star on life because haven't had long enough to say good or bad

Shinko 009 Ravens

I've run several sets of these on my FJR and have been very happy with them. Sticky enough for my style of riding, I have good confidence in the rain, and haven't slipped on dry pavement without sand. I usually use 2 rears for each front, generally 10,000 for the back and 20,000 for the front.

Shinko raven

I am a mechanic and i have a lot of customers asking me to install the same tire again. This is enough for me to recommend it. This is NOT a race tire, but if you intend to put a lot of miles without any worries and on the cheap-this is the tire. If you use the bike like every day commuter-this is the tire. Handles excellent in any conditions, just let it worm up on a cold morning before you do something wild. Probably the best bang for the buck out there.

shinko raven tires

this is my 3rd set of shinko tires. No need to buy any other brand these tires are the best bang for your buck and better than a lot of expensive tires. I ride to work rain or shine and they have never let me down.
