A lot better than I ever thought

I was looking for a 80/20 tire for my SV650 so I could do more off roading. I wanted to see how the SV would handled compared to a 650 V-strom. What I found was amazing. I mounted a Frt 120/70/17 OEM size is 120/60/17
Rear, a 170/70/17 OEM is a 160/60/17 (it didn't come in a 160, only a 150) However, a side by side comparison was a 3/4' rise in the rear tire height. It was a good choice vs the 150.

Better grip than I thought. It holds as well as my Michelin Road 4's on the road. I haven't pushed it too far as it only has 150 miles on them. I will lean it further as time goes on.

Ride height increased by almost an inch on overall ground clearance at 7". This is good for clearing obstacles. I'm going to install a bash plate which I will lose 1/2" making clearance at 6.5 inches. In comparison, a v-strom has a 6.7" clearance. Not much of a difference really.

Holds well on wet roads. I rode it after a rain. The Michelin Road 4's hold better but not by much.

Dirt roads feel like pavement

Gravel roads are predictable although deep gravel the tires wander a bit

Making the SV more dirt worthy and 70 lbs lighter than a 650 V-Strom

Taller profile, 70's profile, makes for a smoother ride. my 60's ride was rather harsh and every undulation with the 60's made the bike skip on turns. The 70's absorb more of the road.


Forget about riding in mud, sand and technical deeply rutted trails.

It's still a 17 inch tire up front

It's does NOT make the SV an Adventure bike as the bike needs more clearance and the tire is only a 80/20. But then again, I ride mostly roads and an occasional dirt road.

Overall Impressioon:

Great buy for both tires at $173 Tax & shipping (Free Shipping)

I found out my tires were Radial tires which explains lower prices from other websites. This Tire is the bomb. And at a price at less than ONE Michelin Road 4.
I've heard they also wear well so we'll have to see on that, but even if I get hald the mileage, I would be happy as I would just buy another set. Some Bikers have gotten up to 8K on the rear and over 10K on the front. That great for any tire.
I love these tires

Tires delivered ready to put on

When i opened the box and found the tire not all folded and de shaped i was very impressed. So far they feel good on the road and maintained traction after breaking them in.

Shinko 705's

Hard to beat this tire for performance and price. I had these on a VStrom 1000 and on my Versys 650. Perfect for the riding that I do. I also have Golden Boy 244's on the DR 350. Life is complicated. Tire selection with Shinko is easy.

Great tires! Great value!

I have used these tires on three different bikes now. They work good on gravel roads, two track trails and are excellent on the road. They seem to hold up well and at a price you can't beat.

Great Price and great tread design

Recent installation and I'm really happy with these tires. Since I needed wheel balance on both tires and wheels I paid the BMW dealer to install. Tires are good for intermediate off road use and make little noise and have no vibration at speeds over 80 mph. These tires were a great price and appear to be a great value so far.

A: Not all sizes are available with each tire. Your dirt bike runs a much skinnier tire than what these particular Skinko's offer.
