    Great Buy!

    I love my new Shinko but should have bought the front @ same time. Will probably get next season. Not noticing any tread loss after few hundred miles. Think I'll be sticking with sport touring tires on my Buell xb9r. This Shinko has good traction on wet dry conditions & good cornering @ lower cost. I'm pleaded! No more high priced sport tires for me.

    2002 Roadstar Warrior

    This tire has lasted longer than Dunlop D220, Metzler, Avon, Bridgestone. This 200/50/17 009 Raven has lasted over 6800 miles. Couldn't get over 5500 tops with next closest comparison. This tire gives me confidence in wet or dry conditions, one or two-up riding.

    SPORT TOURING TIRE

    This is my third set of Raven’s on a ZX-14 and I couldn’t be happier. To most of the people who don’t like this tire make sure you understand this is a sport touring tire, emphasis a little more on touring and I would always recommend you stick to the tire pressures posted on the side wall.

    Great tire for the price

    This is my 4th Shinko rear tire on Buell, can’t beat it. Getting about 7000 miles on rear tire, 2000 more miles than any other tire I’ve used, and if anyone can find a more inexpensive tire that handles as well for the price, let me know, Shinkos are great tires!

    best bang for the buck

    I have been running this tire on my Hayabusa for three years. My bike has almost 70K miles on it, most with this tire. I have done track days in the rain, drag racing, and a lot of touring on this tire and they have never let me down. This is the first year that I have owned my ‘05 Busa, that I have ran all year on one rear tire, and I rode a lot this year. Best overall tire in my opinion regardless of price.

    Unbeatable tire - Forget the low cost

    A lot of people review tires based on how they ride when inflated. I will take a different angle. Ever since my Dunlop Q's kept wearing out every month I decided to try a less expensive tire for my daily commute which is about 100 miles. Because of the different terrain, the chance of flat tires is very high on my commute. I got a flat with my rear Dunlop; bike was unmovable from the second the tire went flat. With the Shinkos I actually popped a rear flat at 120, and 160 MPH respectively (it wasn’t the tires fault, one I just rode until the tread was showing and the other had a nail in it that came out while riding) and rode a flat front for almost 2 weeks without noticing anything but a little heaviness in the steering and I am still here to tell about it. Why, because the tire was able to keep its structural integrity (with minimal wobble) even once the air had gone out of it. Some people may not understand this as an important but there is nothing worse than being stuck on a highway, 1 or 2 miles from the nearest exit, with a dead cell phone and not being able to do anything except leave your bike on the road and hope nobody comes to steal it. I will forever buy these tires.

    Best tires for the price

    I was real hesitant about buying these tires, I’m used to using the Michelin Pilot powers and the Bridgestone BT tires. These tires are awesome. They grip awesome and all around I love them. I’m sticking with these tires, great price, great performance what else can you ask for. Also the tread life is great, better than the pilot powers.

    Awesome tire for the everyday rider

    First off, I purchased a Shinko tire before through Motorcycle Superstore and was very pleased with the fast service, so ultimately, I returned to them when I needed a rear tire for my VFR750. I read reports of people putting more than 8k on the rear tires and so I was sold. I got the tire, was impressed with the design and once put on, what a world of difference. The bike is stable through turns and if you want to ride the canyons moderately or cruise, this tire cuts the bill. I have read reports of this tire not being much a of track tire...well it isn't. It’s meant for touring and long distance. So if you are looking for a tracking tire or an aggressive compound tire, be ready to spend more and look elsewhere. For those that are looking for longevity and mileage, this is the tire for you. I've ridden in two rain storms in the past week and the tire still gave me a good feel of the road conditions. Awesome tire!

    Year Round

    I normally don't leave a rating but after all the rave about Shinko tires I just had to add my two cents. I have a little over 25 years of riding and pretty much ridden on every name brand tire around and I must admit even though I do believe in "you get what you paid for" these tires are legit. I am not an everyday speed demon but I do like to let loose on the weekends. You won’t be disappointed especially for the money. Hope this helps.

    Shinko Raven 009

    So far so good these tires seem to be great on riding the curves and don't seem to be wearing in the center yet from riding the straights but we will see how they last, hopefully great.

    Good tires!!!

    I already put 700 miles on my new tires in just 3 weeks and they don't show much wear. I use them under a thunder storm on my way to baltimore and they are very good, use them also on the race track over 140 miles per hour and they are awesome, I am very happy with this product and the price is excellent!!!

    Great tires!

    I commute to work on my ZX9 and need a high mileage tire; I don't need a track tire on the street. The Shinko 009's (front/rear) work just fine for me. Good grip, smooth-running, good cornering, and excellent price. I would highly recommend for touring, commuting, and mature street riding.
