They're not the WORST... I had them on my Strom, and while they weren't bad, I won't run them again. They HATE tar snakes too in my experience.

That's the sizes I have on mine, but I imagine a range of sizes would fit.

Shinko's website (http://www.shinkotireusa.com/product/product.php?id=63) shows only one 705 front tire that fits: 90/90-21. Two rear 705 tires would fit: 4.10-18 and 120/80-18.

I've never had a problem with shinko tires. I had a pair on my sv650, my buell and.now on the dr200 and all seems fine.

Installed a set of renthal bars, noticeably lighter than stock however they're taller and i don't know if i like that so much. Also installed my new ballistic battery (weighs only .885lbs) so looking forward to more weight loss.

I am considering cutting off the rear passenger pegs and removing the emissions canister for further weightloss. I've read that people are weary of cutting the pegs because it decreases resale value but here's how i look at it:

1) this bike isn't worth that much anyway so how much will saving the passenger pegs really make you??
2) this bike barely has balls with one rider so it's not even practical for 2 up..
3) im looking for major weightloss by any means possible, it will cook in the streets and be like enough to jam on tough terrain.. even more so than it does now.

diet and exercise

Just wondering about the contradiction there... "barely has balls..." and "it will cook in the streets.."

We had a nice day in the PNW today - I probably shoulda' wheeled my little bike out of the garage for a run through the hills.

I guess there is somewhat of a contradiction there but there really isn't enough power for two people. I'm 5'4" and weigh 145lbs so this little bike really does move with me on it.. just looking for ways to make it move a little more.. it will be my "forever" bike since it will never really be worth that much there's no point in selling it..

Went up and hit Geo. Washington Nat. Forest (South of Detrick, Virginia) this weekend with my son and one of his friends. A bit more snow than we expected...but for a pair of 13 year old boys nothing can beat riding a motorcycle, some time shooting a .22 rifle and finally a big campfire and warm sleeping bags.

The DR200...does about everything pretty good (guess I need to teach him how to readjust the mirrors):
