Information and Details about the Shinko 705 Series Dual Sport Tires - Radial
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

    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 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. 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 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.

    Rear wearing fast - Robert   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Surprisingly good dry grip on asphalt
    Cons: Rear wearing out fast

    I was very impressed with these tires when I put them on my recently purchased R1200GS. As one other reviewer noted, I was able to scrape the pegs and still felt in control. The rumble from the chunky tread is noticeable at low speeds, and I assume that some of the vibration at higher speed my be coming from the tires as well. I have not used them off-road or in the wet yet so cant speak to their ability to handle those conditions. But with less than 1500 miles on them, the rear is down to about 13 of it's original tread in the middle. Some of my riding has been two up, but I tend to ride very gently with a pillion. I am certain that the wear is more related to my riding style than any quality issue with the tire. I came off a Bandit 1200 which was shod with Michelin PRs of various types, and I ran it rather hard, still got a minimum of 3000 miles from a rear, more typically 4500-5000. I am considering orderinga set of Pilot Road Trails for general use, and keep a set of Shinkos on hand for any trips involving limited off-road excursions. Or maybe learn to tame the right wrist...Overall, I would recommend them as they are a real bargain, but with the caveat that they may not handle aggressive throttle use on the street.
