Good cost Effective tire for your dual sport. Good off road in dry and lightly wet conditions but due to tighter spaced knobs they hold mud and become slippery. That being said if you ride mostly road and som light off-roading dry conditions this is a good tire, and depending how hard you ride the tire will last accordingly. Good buy here. As with any tire you buy be sure to match conditions, ability and what type of riding you do and you will not be disappointed.

I put this on earlier this month, and it does great on the roads. I haven't had a chance to take it on the trails yet, but I am confident that it will not disappoint. I got this specific tire because it has a good rating for the price. Will likely get one for the front when I need one.
First of all, the telephone rep at MotoSports was a master.
Helpful, professional, could tell that he cared. (I think his name was Paul, but forgive me if I got that wrong).
The tires...haven't had a chance to take them up to Oakey Mountain yet (single track through north georgia mountains with some serious loose rocky hill climbs) but they feel great on the street.
Definitely give me more confidence with street riding than the Dunlop 606's I recently wore out. I commute daily on my Crf250L, but part of my daily commute involves a 1/2 mile loose gravel road. They're quiet, feel like they grip the road fine, and so far seem fine on loose gravel.
I threw these on my KLX250 after having street tires on it. I thought I’d notice a big difference on the roads but I really don’t. I can still corner well and it’s not a rough ride. They are great off road too.
Add review under 705 by mistake, see my review there for this tire.
Only a tad noticable on the road, these are a great compromise if youre still looking to get gnarly,
I like to do some off-road but want to be able to rip twisties and not scare myself. These fit the bill, I can surprise some street bike riders in the tight stuff and still jump onto a trail if I come across one. Can't beat the price either and these seam to last about as long as any other dualsports tire does on the back of my dr650. I do a lot of gravel so none seam to last me long.
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!!

Question:Q: What would be the correct front and rear size for my 2012 Yamaha WR450F?Question asked Over 5 months ago

The Shinko Dual Sport 700 Series Front/Rear Tires are available in 3.00-21TL and 4.60-18TT which will fit on your rims but are slightly wider. Wider tires provide better stability at high speeds on the pavement.

Question:Q: What size of the Shinko 700 would work bet on a 2006 DR200SE? Looking for something a little bigger than stock. Also what would be the best size tubes?Question asked Over 7 months ago
Question answered by PaulUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered Over 7 months agoAnswer: A: The correct tire sizes for the 2006 Suzuki DR200SE are 70/100-21 in front, and 110/80-18 at the rear. The engineers and designers at Suzuki tested other sizes and determined these to perform best for most riders in most conditions. The 70/100-21 is 70mm wide, and the 110/80-18 is 110mm wide.
You may use any 21" front and 18" rear tires you like. It's important to know that wider tires will require more effort to get the bike to lean into turns.
The Shinko Dual Sport 700 Tire Combo is available in 3" x 21" front, and 130/80-18 rear. The 3" x 21" is equal to metric size 90/90-21. These larger tires will fit on your rims. You will need to measure the clearances in your chassis to confirm that there is enough space for wider or larger tires.

Question:Q: What size dual sport tires do I need for 2016 crf250r? Tubes as well?Question asked 1 year ago
Question answered by PaulUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 1 year agoAnswer: A: The stock tire sizes on the 2016 Honda CRF250R are 80/100-21 front, and 100/90-19 rear. These are the sizes which Honda and tested and determined to work best for most riders in most conditions.
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.
