I ordered a set of Shinko 244s from Revzilla on Monday. Under 100 bucks with free shipping. They showed up Thursday. I changed the front tire today so I could head up into TN for a dual sport ride tomorrow. Details here: http://www.motorcyclealabama.com/rides/index.php?topic=3423.0 The front tire was easy to change and I checked the balance before removing the old weights. It was so close I didn't bother to re-balance it.
