Prce is remembered long after quality is forgotten Ok, BMW rider here - I was about to drop nearly $450 for a set of tires from the BMW dealer when some Honda ST1300 friends recommended these tires. Being a tire snob and having spent more on one Bridgestone tire for my ST1100 than I would for a pair of Shinkos on my Bimmer, I was a bit hesitant... but I thought, "they must know what they are talking about." I mounted a set of Ravens on my 2006 BMW R1200RT before a 2k mile week-long trip to upstate New York. The bike previously had PR2's that may have made it through the trip, but I knew better than to push it. While I had hoped for beautiful weather, what I got was rain every day but one. But, these tires performed flawlessly and left me feeling confident while riding through less-than-stellar conditions. After about 1200 miles of time on the bike, I took a two-lap trip around Watkins Glen raceway, and these tires gripped well in the corners. I was also surprised when they didn't "skip" as much over wet tar-snakes and painted lines as my PR2's did. Other reviews stated that the tread style of the front tire seemed to track imperfections in the pavement, like cracks, but I didn't experience this. Very happy I decided to go "inexpensive" and take the recommendation of friends who purchased Shinkos. $150 plus mounting and balancing (another $60), best pocket change ever spent. Something else noteworthy, the shop who mounted these didn't even have to use weight. My nice alloy wheels are now all naked without being spoiled by ugly weight that the PR2's required. YMMV...

This product is great buy. This product is great bang for your buck. Great design and looks good on the bike.i will order front tire soon.same brand. September 9, 2014
Great tire for the money! I have an '06 CBR600F4I, and I have put about 1400 miles on this tire so far. Lots of riding 2-up and loaded with luggage and it is holding up well. No visible tread wear, so I think it will last quite a while. I have ridden it in the heavy rain with no issues. I have never pushed its limits, so I don't know about the absolute traction. However, it feels well planted at moderate speeds and with heavy loads. It is a very flat tire, so it is fairly tame and turns in slow compared to a more racing profile. That is all a matter of opinion, the stability is nice for touring. There is also more contact patch on the rear, hopefully increasing the wear life. Overall a good sport touring tire, great for the price. September 8, 2014
Amazing tire for the money. Absolutely love this tire. I cannot believe how well it performs while still being so cheap. It is a little slower to turn in on my bike but once you're used to it you don't even notice anymore. Overall an amazing tire. September 5, 2014
Great tire Tire sticks well last long on the st and the fjr I love the shinkos they don't break the bank August 25, 2014
on 2006 harley softail standard Tire feels and looks great. A lot more contact pad an is very comfortable in the turns! Runs as well as the high dollar tires! Have not ridden with it in rain yet, i live in sunny so cal. When I ordered I had my tire in exactly 24 hours! That's crazy! Will def buy this tire again and only from revzilla.com! August 18, 2014
Tire is better than I am... Always spent top dollar for what was the "hot" tire.. Just finished up my 2nd set of PR3's... I ate them up and they cupped, after hearing from a few friends how they loved the Shinkos and the price, I decided to try one on the rear. So far, tire feels excellent. Not quite as aggressive a profile as the PR3 ( not quite as abrupt rounding profile) but my bike feels great (R1200RT-2010). I also feel great about saving $100+++ and I know the tire (and I'm sure any tire these days) has more built in performance than I do. Tires are too new to rate them on wet weather and tire life, but a friend who also rides an RT routinely gets 10k on his Shinkos. August 18, 2014
Great tire, great price They fit and the price is right. I have no reason to use any other tire. This is the first set of Ravens, I can't comment on tread life yet. No rain here in weeks while I've been out on this bike so no wet grip feedback either. August 11, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Kenneth M: The FIRST time I bought one, it was because it was inexpensive, supposedly long-lasting, and had received relatively positive reviews from other riders on Revzilla.

The SECOND time I bought one, it was because I like the tire so much on MY bike ('06 Ninja 650R), that it seemed like an obvious choice when it came time to replace the rear tire on my wife's bike ('07 SV650).

Allen C: Third Shinko rear tire, they last less then a year for me, not because of wear but due to metal objects.

Ryan B: Yes it is a low profile tire that matched my original factory tire. I installed mine on a Kawasaki C14 Concours 1,400cc sport touring bike.
To be completely honest, I did have a problem with the bead, it wouldn't seal correctly after having it installed on my rim by the Kawasaki shop. I had to take it back twice for a slow persistent leak and eventually ended up replacing the tire with a Michelin brand. Sorry, but I really can't recommend the tire. Now it may have been the original install, the mechanic may have left some old tire rubber debris on the rim that ultimately caused the new Shinko tire bead to not seal well, but I can't be sure.

Garrett W: Under "Tire Size", the second number represents aspect ratio. For example if you select 180/55/17, the 55 is your aspect ratio, meaning the tire is 55% as tall as it is wide.

You should buy the appropriate tire size recommended in your owner's manual. Straying from the recommended tire size might cause poor handling.
