This tire has great highway traction, wet/and dry, it has spent most of its life on highway, gravel roads, it has also done some rougher ATV trails. So far I’m pleased with it. The only terrain it’s not so good in, is mud and snow. It’s my favorite all around rear tire on my 1090 Adventure. I have gotten around 5,000 miles on them. Which is good for me, I’m a spirited rider, not afraid to hang it out!

Bought these for my dr650 and ended up not fitting my rim because it's been swapped with an rm250 wheel size but I have had a set on a dr350 and they were amazing on the street. Definitely heavier but had grip in the turns where I could scrap the pegs and pass all the newer sportbike guys
Probably only have 1000 miles on it looks like hardly any wear showing Seems like traction is very good I have it on a 1000 vstrom adventure bike did not give 5 stars because I haven’t put enough miles on it yet for true longevity review
Got a hole in the tire and a flat first time out. Got a flat the second time out. And a flattened third time out. I don't recommend these tires
They are a smooth riding and good wearing tire. I am just putting my second set on my CB500X. First set got 8000 miles on them. I am trading both out for a trip, but would go another 2000 on the old ones, but want new rubber for the trip. They stick good enough for my skills and bike weight. I travel solo with about 50 lb camping gear on my trips. Used same tires on 2 Alaska trips on my KLR. Very happy with them on gravel roads and pavement.
Just rode these tires 1200+ miles down the Blue Ridge Parkway, across North Carolina, and up the Outer Banks back to Maryland. Curves, highway, and a little bit of dirt and sand and these tires were on point the whole time. Sticky in the curves, smooth and quiet on the highway, and the wear for 1200+ miles wasn't excessive or strangely patterned. Can't comment on handling in the wet because we got lucky with the weather, but excellent tire for the price and one of the few that fits the XL1200CX. I would definitely buy again. *Can't rate installation since I had a shop mount and balance.
My experience with the Shinko 705's has been very positive.
Very reliable and predictable in the wet/rain. Good traction in most off-road situations.
Best of all, due to the lower cost for the tires, I don't hesitate to swap out tires and not squeeze out the last few miles. As a result, I can run on fresh tires more often.
I've run these tires through probably 4 sets...
I think they perform as good as any dual sport tire of same purpose...
I ride hard and fast..no problem
No problems in rain,instills confidence...
I can only get 4,000 miles out of rear but I'm not easy on the throttle...
Easy 5,000 or 6,000 out of front...
Ive put about 500 miles on them and they seem great. I have zero buyers remorse. The price was an incredible value.

Question:Q: I have a 2016 BMW F700GS. I want a TL rear tire but you don’t have one in 140/80-17, only TT. Is there another size that would fit in the tubeless?Question asked Over 7 months ago
Question answered by PaulUser's contributor status: Top 1Question answered Over 7 months agoAnswer: A: The correct tire sizes for the 2016 BMW F700GS are 110/80R-19 front, and 140/80R-17 rear. The R in the size code means "Radial".
The Shinko Dual Sport 705 Tire Combo is not available in your correct sizes in radials, and is not recommended for your '16 F700GS.
If nothing better is available, the Shinko Dual Sport 705 110/80-19TL Bias Ply, and 140/80-17TT (tube type) will fit on your rims, however there are better options available which are properly suited for your '16 F700GS.

Question answered by DaveGearheadUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered Over 8 months agoAnswer: A: A 17" tire will not fit on either of those rims. You would need to re-lace 17" rims on the hubs. Then the tires would fit.

Question answered by Trevor GearheadUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered Over 9 months agoAnswer: A: The rim will accommodate the extra width, no problem. Might have to remove the rear brake caliper to get it on as it may be snug but it will fit and plenty of folks run them.
Question asked by Kilroy
Question:Q: Looking at the 110/80-19TL versus the 110/80-19TL-Bias. Bias shows that it is tubeless, but I think that I would like a tube in it. Should I order the straight TL and what tube should I order? Same question for the Rear - 140/80-17. ThanksQuestion asked Over 10 months ago
Question answered by DaveGearheadUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered Over 10 months agoAnswer: A: Both tires show that they are tubeless (TL). You can run a tube in those tires, however you will need to know if your bike requires a radial or bias ply tire.
