Information and Details about the Shinko 705 Series Dual Sport Tires - Bias Ply
made by Shinko
I tested a set of Shinko sport-bike tires a few months ago and walked away impressed. The company is a relatively new name in the ultra-competitive world of motorcycle tires. For the most part, Shinko tires are building a solid reputation.Recently, I had the chance to ride a big dual-sport fitted with Shinko 705 Series tires. Riders of large dual-sports like the Kawasaki KLR and adventure tourers like the BMW GS have to be particularly attentive in their choice of rubber. They have to realistically determine the percentage of their riding time that is spent on the dirt.

The Shinko 705s are billed as a 80/20 tire. That means 80 street and 20 dirt duty. I would say that is a fairly accurate assessment of the tires terrain suitability.I found the 705s to be stable on hard-packed dirt and gravel. On the other hand, these are definitely not tires intended for soft dirt and sand, where they wallow badly. However, for fast fire-road duty, they are fully in their element. On the pavement, the tires display adequate straight-line tracking and good cornering properties. However, I did notice that the tread pattern contributed to a bit more vibration on the road than some other DS tires on which I have ridden. The vibration was not enough to dampen my overall positive impression of the tires.

The 705 is a DOT approved dual sport tire designed for 80% street and 20% trail riding. A versatile tread pattern provides excellent wet and dry weather adhesion and smooth running on the highway.

Features:
  • Rubber compound resists tearing during off road use
  • Radial Sizes to fit popular BMW and Suzuki Dual Sport models
  • Bias ply for most other dual sport motorcycles
  • 4-ply construction
  • H Rated (130 MPH), Q Rated (99 MPH) or P Rated (94 MPH)
  • TL = Tubeless
  • All sizes designed for front or rear fitment, unless noted

They have to realistically determine the percentage of their riding time that is spent on the dirt. The Shinko 705s are billed as a 75/25 tire. That means 75 street and 25 dirt duty. I would say that is a fairly accurate assessment of the tires’ terrain suitability.

    I found the 705s to be stable on hard-packed dirt and gravel. On the other hand, these are definitely not tires intended for soft dirt and sand, where they wallow badly.

    The 705s are H-rated tires, in a 4-ply, tubeless design. At a competitive retail price of 60 – 105, I believe Shinko has a winner here.

    Shinko 705 Radial dual sport tires - GSRider   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great tire for great value
    Cons: Haven't found any yet

    I put a set of the Shinko 705 radials on my BMW 1150GS about a year ago and have been very pleased with them. In that time I've ridden 6500 miles of asphaltdirt 7525 in all conditions without a single issue. The GS is a heavy bike and I ride two-up and modestly loaded most of the time. We ride a variety of twisty asphalt ranging from ratty back roads to the occassional high-speed run on the Interstate dirt riding consists of good gravel roads and two-track forest roads, but we unfortunately don't get the chance to ride too much true off road here in Virginia. It rains a lot here and I have never had any concerns with grip even in heavy downpours. I've never had an issue with the tires in any way under any circumstances, not so much as a flat. I ride very aggressively when alone and have never felt the need to hold back because of tire grip. At 6500 miles the rear is nearing the wear bars and is a little bit square with some minor cupping, but nothing unusual. The front doesn't look worn at all, just nicely scuffed in. I've run many tires on this bike that cost 2 to 3 times the Shinko and had similar experiences. I decided to try the Shinko because the last set of Tourances I had cupped badly beginning at about 3000 miles so that I rode with the infamous wobbles until the tires were ready to be replaced. I've gotten about the same mileage out of the Shinko as I expected from the more expensive tires and have been very pleased with the somewhat more aggressive tread pattern which is perfect for the majority of the riding I do. I haven't noticed the Shinkos being any noisier than the Tourances, Anakees, or any other dualsport tire I've had on the bike.I'll be ordering another rear tire when I finish this review.

    Don from colorado  
    After wearing out several OEM tires 4500 miles front, 6500 rear on my BMW 800GS, I switched to the Kinko 705's. Very happy with paved canyon performance, highway and 2-track gravel and light 4WD. So far I have 3500 miles on the front and I'd say they are a little more than half worn. Rear only has 1000 miles on it so hard to tell longevity at this point. The only extra vibration I notice is at very slow speed when the bike is perfectly vertical such as when coming to a stop sign. I'm very happy with these tires especially considering the price.

    Don't know how they will be long term but I'm completely satisfied. I have only had the tires on for a few days. Ride is much more stable than stock tires. Holds the corners much better. The price is great. I'm mostly an in town commuter so these tires don't have a chance to get hot.

    Pro: Solid traction dry or wet on my V-Strom 1000, scraped pegs easily. Decent gravel and hard packed/two track traction off-road especially if you bleed off some air. I sold the bike when the tires had 1200 miles on them and they still looked nearly new so I would anticipate good longevity. I intend to put a set on my new V-Strom when necessary.
    Con: You can feel the gaps in the tread pattern when rolling around the parking lot and they developed some vibration with a passenger at interstate speeds.

    Overall: great value, good tire.

    Utah Roads - DrewMonty   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: hooks up well on dirt roads
    Cons: wears out fast getting to dirt roads w uneven wear

    The previous owner of my bike was cheap and put these on knowing he was gonna sell. After riding about 1000 miles of 60 road and 40 dirt road to the north rim of Grand Canyon and back plus a few small rides in northern Utah .The front is uneven and bobs at slow speed on asphalt. rear is doing better evenly with tread life. I always check air pressure. I know my 650GS Dakar would go faster with a bigger block tire but with these it seams to be done at 75-80 mph highway. Keeps me from having to look around for the police. On the dirt roads and double single track they give me more confidence like being on my dirt bike, even loaded down. trying to burn them off to get a better 50-50 tire, because I always have to get to the dirt first. this is a good 60-40 dirt asphalt tire for little money
