Pros: Comp Acc service, price, traction
Cons: None yet
This is my third season with the Busa and my third set of tires. The first two were the Conti Motions and they are a great tire for the price, but decided to try something new this round and these were basically the same price. Ordered the tires and they arrived in just a few days as usual. Had the local shop put them on for me and two days later I was out for an 850 mile three day ride. These tires saw almost every weather condition imaginable, except for heat, over the next few days as I went from Eastern Washington to the ocean beach and back. They held up and kept great traction in 30 degree weather, light rain, torrential downpour, and even the snowslush I had the pleasure of riding in over the pass on the way home. So far a great tire, a great price, and great service.

Pros: Service from Compacc is great. Tires are great also when funds are low....
Just got them and about to try them out. Heard from alot of friends here in Texas that these were pretty good for their price range. I ride to commute mostly to work but I like to have fun every once in awhile with a few miles of high speed and fast turns, when I can..Time will tell how long it will last but I will let everybody know. Hopefully 5000k, that's the number I'm looking for...
Ordered the Shinko's on the advice of a friend to replace Bridgestones on a '01 ZX-12R. Amazed at how well they hook up, especially with the amount of power my Kawi is putting down. Have not had the opportunity to experience in the rain yet,but believe they will perform just as well as advertised. Also want to give a BIG SHOUT out to COMPACC customer service. Ordered on a Monday and rec'd tires on Wed afternoon just in time for Bike week in Myrtle Beach, as I was leaving on Thurs. Thanks COMPACC for the speedy delivery!
i have a gixxer 1000 and when i bought these tires i was skeptical til' race day at the 1/4 mile track they performed better than i thought and needless to say alot of racers have talked about getting a set and thanked me for showing them how these tires handled.
I just got a set of these tire a week ago. Went to Houston for the bridging the gap ride,these tire performed GREAT! On my old tires, I use to be scared to lean all the way, but on these tires I looked like a pro. Big D represented!!!!
I too was only getting 2-3000mi on Pirelli's,Dunlops,Conti's, Michelin's and Brigdestones. Then My buddy and I tried a set of these... 5000mi of fairly agressive riding riding, both on my Busa and my GSXR, my buddy got 6000mi from the set on his 600RR. They perform great all around. Wet or dry, and will hold high HP bikes...
Im on my third rear,no front fitment for my bike and wouldn't think of running anything else. I get 8000-9000 mi from them on my 900RR which sees everything from 2up cruising to all out sport riding. Excellent in the rain as well.
I've ran the Dunlop & the Continental. I've found that the best tire for your money is the Shinko 005 Advanced. From launching from the tripple tree at the track, to knee dragging on the back roads, it can hold it's own. I also found that it lasts longer. I ride a stock 2003 GSX-R 750, by far the best pound for pound sport ever built! I've got no problem jumping out in front & loosing the other riders in the twists & turns....
These tires are absolutely great in all weather conditions. I have used these commuting and at Deal's Gap. Very sticky when needed and great for mileage on my Suzuki Hayabusa. I usually get around 3k miles on most Michelin or Dunlop tires. These Shinko's are getting between 5-6k miles. They are definitely the "best bang for the buck". Shinko tires are what I would recommend for the aggressive street rider.
I'm just completing a cros-country bike trip... New York to San Fran and back. I had a new set of these on until the West Coast... very hard daily running in hot weather through Kansas... South Dakota... Montana.. etc. They lasted exceptionally well and were quite reliable in the wet. No issues on cornerin.. worked well. I replaced them with Bridegstone BT023 dual-compound on the west coast.. now I'm back east and wish I'd gotten the Shinkos instead.. they actually wore better than the Bridestones across 5000 miles.
I have a Bandit 1200
I have hag every brand tire on my yzf600 these tires are by far the best bang for your buck I got 9000 out of the rear even with doing some bad ass burnouts. I got over 11,00 out of the front tire. I would recomend this tire to all my friends
