Shinko 005 Advance Front Tires
Great tire for the price
Can't beat it for the price. Great tire!! I've run the battleax & pilots & this tire is just as good for what I use it for.

Great product, durability and grip!
I installed this front tire in may 2013 and one year and a half later, today (nov 2014) I have 19,600 kms on it and still have a lot of tread left. I only have a motorcycle (Kawasaki Versys 2012) so I need a tire that is economic and can handle everyday use. I live in the caribbean where the weather is hot everyday so I don't have issues with the grip in the street or even in wet pavement.

Short time on bike
Just got this tire mounted so can't speak to tread wear or wet traction yet.
However I can say that the handling is noticeably better than the stock Bridgestone on my Ninja.
Turning is much sharper and easier.
If it gives me a reasonable tread life I'll definitely try Shinko again.

bought the front and back set together when they were on sale, and I can say I do not regret it one bit. the grip is all there as these are soft tires that you can leave your finger nail imprint on them, but, in contrast I find that they do not wear as fast as I thought they would, I still have hairs on my pair and I ride every single day. I have to say I am very pleased with these tires and how quickly they arrived. I will definitely buy them again from revzilla.

I had the 005 rear tire for about 6000 miles and was very impressed. I have just put the front tire on and rode it for about 250 miles and I will have to say it is a very hard tire. I replaced a Dunlop and I can feel every bump in the road now. Im hoping as the tire wears in it will soften up a bit but I guess I will find out. The price is unbeatable and the tread pattern looks very good but if the ride doesn't improve I will probably not order another front tire.

Great tire for the money!
This is the second 005 Advanced tire I have put on my M109R. I have over 30K on my ride, so I have tried many, and this tire has lasted the longest (10,000 miles). I ride my bike aggressively and this tire performs well for its price.
