I bought my first set of Shinko tires 6 years ago for a Concours and I was a little hesitant when I ordered them. I’m really glad that I did. I ride a fair amount of time on the Interstate and highways, but also it’s not uncommon for me to find some twisties whenever I get the chance. These tires work well in any of the roads I find. They don’t flat spot from long rides on the highway and they are great on the curves as well. They are also stable in the rain as well. As an added bonus, they outlasted the tires I used to run by several thousand miles for less cost.
I put these on my K1300S and they are fantastic sport touring tires. I have an older R6 and SV650S wearing these tires as well. Shinko tires and a Corbin saddle will help turn almost any sport bike into a sport tourer on a budget!
I’ve never had a bad experience with this site. Whether it’s a set of tires, a t-shirt, or safety gear, it arrives quickly and well packed.
I've been using this tire on my last three bikes and I usually get 10k out of them!
Complete worthless garbage. Zero traction. I can't even explain how garbage these tires are compared to a Q3 or pilot power. If you ride in a perfectly straight line they will be great but I wouldn't suggest turning or leaning on them whatsoever
I purchased these tires a month ago I love them. I was worried at first before I broke them in because of the stiffness and looseness while riding. I also knew I had to get used to them as well. Two days in, they re the best tires I ever had. They make you lean into curves effortlessly. Sharp slow turns are the easiest they have ever been for me. These tires have made me a better rider really. I have a GZXR 1000 and my leaning, turning, and dipping skills have increased. I get great traction on straightaways as well.
I'm impressed with the profile and the overall handling of the tire
Never disappointed with Shinko or Motorsport. Fast shipping and quality products.
I've been riding a Honda Blackbird for 18 years (I'm now 82 yrs old) and have tried numerous tire brands. Shinkos have proven the best - best mileage and grip - tire on the market. I'm not too happy with the way the front tire wears, but again, it's still the best one for the money. My daughter and I visit AR every year for the "good times"......lotsa twisty roads!!

Question:Q: Will a Raven 009 190/50/17 fit on my Yamaha FZ10? Used many sets on my old FZ1.Question asked Over 9 months ago
Question answered by CodyGearheadUser's contributor status: Top 25Question answered Over 9 months agoAnswer: A: The 2017 Yamaha FZ-10 runs a 190/55-17 from the factory. You can vary a bit on the width and aspect ratio so the 190/50-17 will fit. The sidewall will just be a tiny bit shorter.

Question:Q: My stock tire sizes are 120/60/17(front) and 160/60/17(rear)....i plan on changing rims, same 17" rim size but require a 180/55 for the rear, will the rear tire size difference affect it drastically? dive faster? lean further? (custom built zx6)Question asked 1 year ago
Question answered by PaulUser's contributor status: Top 1Question answered 1 year agoAnswer: A: Comparing the 160/60-17 to the 180/55-17 rear tires, the skinnier rear tire requires less effort to lean in to turns. The wider rear tire provides greater stability at high speeds while riding in a straight line. The wider tire requires more effort to lean in to turns, and provides a larger contact patch while leaned over, which improves traction.
The 180mm is 20 millimeters wider than the 160mm. You will have to measure the clearances on your ZX6 to determine if there is space for the wider tire. It's important that the edge of the tire doesn't touch the chain. Allowing the tire to touch the chain could contaminate the rubber with chain-lube, and cause slipping while leaned in to turns.

Question:Q: My original tires are 120/60 17 will a 120/65 17 fit or is too big of a differance? thank youQuestion asked Over 4 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: MotoSport Staff ExpertQuestion answered Over 4 years agoAnswer: A: Yes it will fit but it will affect the handling. The hight of the 65 tire would be slightly higher then the stock, so you would start leaning and the bike will dive faster because you've increased the hight at the center. That middle number (65) is your aspect ratio, basically the height of your tire. It tells you that the height is 65% of the width. 120/65-17: 120 mm X .65 = 78 mm. Generally you want to stick to the stock size that the bike was engineered for.

Question:Q: Will this 170 tire fit my sv650sQuestion asked Over 5 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportGrantKUser's contributor status: MotoSport StaffQuestion answered Over 5 years agoAnswer: A: All Suzuki SV650's come OEM with a 160/60-17 rear tire. You shouldn't have any problem going to a 170/60-17 but I highly recommend measuring your clearance before ordering as fitment is not guaranteed.
