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. 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.

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.

    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
