I have a honda xr650l. I really liked the looks of the shinko 700 so I purchase a set and haven't been disappointed at all for 40% dirt and 60% road. They handle well. In the dirt just don't get to crazy with them and you'll be fine

Purchased the set for my 15’ KLR 650, to get rid of the stock Dunlop’s. After 150 miles so far, they are great! Good traction wet or dry, stable when the bike is loaded ( panniers, trunk, tank bag). Time will tell but so far they are great!!
Just about 500 miles on the 700 Shinkos..Since the stocks on my 2018 Husky fe501 only made 1800miles before being shot..I bought a more street tire due to my riding style, season,budget..Started raining here couple weeks ago an the Shinks are as grippy as i need...Ive got a couple of rear slips on road paints during corners ...but the front tire has been a rock..its tall,wrap around tread style works amazing in the loose rock,wet sloppy trail,and on the pavement it noses itself into whatever crazy line you pick, an feels like your on rails..Plus im now gettin 68m.p.g....They have been all i expected ..good tire,great value
Bought a set for my 2003 KLR250 and very happy with the tires on street and handle well off road as well. To earlier to tell on durability but overall satisfied so far.
I bought these tires because they looked like a good affordable tire and I was right. These tires fit perfect on my DR350S and handle all terrain great. Took them out trail riding with no traction problems. Great on the road as well, very smooth.
I put these tires on my 99 xr650l with a 103mm big bore, full fmf exhaust, and fmf carb power up kit.. it's a pretty quick torquey bike.. I push them pretty hard on the street, gravel, dirt, grass, and everything in between.. they have great traction in all areas.. if you look at the tread pattern and wonder if it's grippy enough for you on the street, it is. It has a moderately pliable compound but seems to wear decently well.. I'd expect these to last me for a couple seasons.. plus they're cheap at $100 for both.. heck if you're worried about finding them buy two sets! They're great!
I gave 4 stars for installation cause I did it myself.. and I hate changing tires lol
I just completed 300 miles of the Hatfield McCoy Trails in West Virginia. These tires had only ten miles on them when I loaded my KLR650 on the trailer. Let me tell you these tires got me into and thru places most KLRs dare not go. I went up trail 70 on Bearwallow with ease its a black diamond. The tread pattern really bites good. The sidewalls held up great to several rim bottom outs. Get these tires, heck get two sets!
Dual Sport tires are not offered in the 19" rear needed for your CRF250R. Putting dual sport tires on the CRF250R will require replacing the rear wheel with an 18". We can assist you with this.
Many big adventure touring bikes such as the BMW R1200GS, KTM 1390 Adventure, and Yamaha Super Tenere use 19" front tires and wheels. Fitting a 19" front adventure touring tire onto your 19" rear rim would be less expensive than purchasing a new 18" rear wheel.
