I run Shinko on all 3 of my bikes

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.

My favorite street tire!

I have always loved the tread pattern, performance and of course the price! I have had 4 sets now on my 2012 zx14r and I wouldn't trade them! Wear pattern is as expected and never any issues with grip, even in the rain! You can't go wrong here! Keep up the great work Shinko!

Love em

Had 120/180 Michellins on but they didn’t last long, giving these a shot 120/190... love them so far. Look good, feel great (can definitely feel a good difference in bike reaction time/sensitivity when I’m countersteering/playing), and half cost of the Michellins.

Garbage

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 love them!!

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.

Great value and quality

Best tire for the money

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 asked by Motorcycle philosopher

Question: 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 CodyGearhead

Question answered Over 9 months ago
Answer: 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 asked by David

Question: 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 Paul

Question answered 1 year ago
Answer: 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 asked by Michael

Question: Which is the better tire for overall performance as far as longevity, Gripp and wet weather performance. The Shinko 009 Raven or Continental Conti motion. There is not that much difference in money.

Question answered 1 year 9 months ago
Answer: I would suggest the Continental Conti Motion since it comes with free flat coverage from Continental. And it will out last the Shinko.

Question asked by Eric210

Question: My original tires are 120/60 17 will a 120/65 17 fit or is too big of a differance? thank you
Question asked Over 4 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportExpert
User's contributor status: MotoSport Staff Expert
Question answered Over 4 years ago
Answer: 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: Will this 170 tire fit my sv650s
Question asked Over 5 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportGrantK
User's contributor status: MotoSport Staff
Question answered Over 5 years ago
Answer: 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.
