they also buy old molds like 700 series tire http://www.shinkotireusa.com/product/product.php?id=48 which is a kings mold.

the 244s are originally from a bridgestone trailwing (tw18/19) design. kenda k270, irc gp-1 also use this general design.

the 705 looks to be a new mold design, i haven't seen that used elsewhere.

For those in Canuckistan... I phoned Chaparral Motorsports today. Shipping to Canada is, the lady said, upwards of $80 PER TIRE.

Nationalistic pride, I think, is damn difficult. My local shop quoted $508 installed on a pair of cheap-ass D607 dualsport tires on my DL650.

You are correct...the 705 is a new mold.

My tires arrived today. They certainly look rugged and manly.

I took the wheels off the Strom and went over to the motorcycle guy. He replaced the old tires with the Shinkos and now I am in the process of putting the wheels back on. What a pain in the ass this is. The front fender is causing me many headaches.

Give G Borque in New Brunswick a call and see what they'll charge & if they carry them.

Glad to read that people seem to be happy with these tires. My front BattleWing now has about 9000 miles on it and looks like it will need replacing in another couple thousand miles or so; I'll definitely be putting on a set of 705s next.

The tires are on the wheels and the wheels are on the bike.

I rode around for about 20 miles or so to get them a bit scrubbed in before the rain started yet again.

The front tires feels different. I can't say if it's bad or good... just different. Bear in mind that this is the most aggressive tread I have ever had on a front tire.

The guy who mounted the tires did not have good things to say about Shinko sport bike tires. He said they were too hard for aggressive sport bike riding. However, he was impressed by the 705s and said that for the price and how I will be riding, the tires looked like a good deal.

As I ride more (when the rain finally stops) I will post further details.

for adv tires, harder rubber = longer miles.
that's one reason the metz me880 last so long.

question for you and your tire choice. isn't florida just straight paved boring roads?

Yup!

But I try to get into the mountains (NC, TN, GA, SC, etc) at least once a year.

I have an odd request...

Can someone with a Shinko 705 150/70-17 mounted up go measure the overall width of the tire at its widest point?


On my Dirty Bastard VX800, 150/70-17 is the original tire size, but it's a pretty tight fit with most street tires (Avon Storm, Bridgestone BT-020). I'm wondering if the 705 is much wider than a street tire would be.

The VX800 is currently wearing a nearly worn out Distanzia 140/80-17 on the back (less than 4,000 miles, and probably less than 500 to the tread wear indicators ) and it's sporting a fresh nail hole picked up somewhere in the back woods of Brown County earlier today.

Distianzia rears are running $160, so around $60 - $70 for the Shinko sounds pretty damn good to me, even better if the damn thing doesn't evaporate in a couple of trips around the block like the Distanzia.

Funny, just saw this post and I ordered my 705s from Bourques last thursday.

FYI - Full-Bore Marketing is the Canadian Distributor, their order codes for my 1150GS sizes are:
21-907
21-908
Not sure which code is for front and which is for rear, but I assume the 908 is the rear.
Marc at Bourques Knows- http://www.gbourque.com/

I'm really not expecting them to last forever, or be the best tires I have ever used, but I can buy 2 rears and a front for less than the cost of one Tourance rear, so it'll be a good experiment

Full Bore said they likely will not be available until End June

I had to eyeball a bit, but I measure 5.75" across (wide)

5.8ish inches, V strom rim.


Comparison Photo, Shinko 705 vs. old Maxxis Presa Detour:


Shinko has 8 to 10mm tread depth, but narrow and "V" shaped grooves. Maxxis had 6mm tread depth, much more open grooves.
