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
009 Raven on XB12XT I broke in the tire with a 1,000 mile ride in the rain, just returned from a 6,500 mile 14 day trip and there was still another 500-1000 miles left on this tire. No other tiire I've tried has lasted beyond the 5K mark with the Buell. Gives up a little wet weather traction compared to the various Angels that were on it... easily controlled with some right wrist restraint. Overall an excellent tire that exhibited no problems and I highly recommend for mileage as well as grip. I've already installed a new one, the front looks as though it will last through two rears. This tire is going to save me some serious cash every year! August 11, 2014
great tire, will be ordering them again This is the second set of Shinko's and it won't be the last. They work great on my heavy CBR1000F. You guys got them here amazing fast, great service. Now can you do somthing about that annoying pop-up. August 4, 2014
BAY COMMUTE bandit 1250 + me 300lbs = new tires rather quickly. I started riding 30 years ago I would put a shinko tire on my xs650 and spin the tire up every hill in san Francisco. Todays shinko is comparable to the best tires of 30 years ago. No spinning on these shinkos, grab throttle & the front tire come right up. performance of these tires exceeded my expectations. very pleased. ABOUT 800 SUMMER MILES ON THESE . WILL UPDATE LATER ON WET TRACTION AND TREAD LIFE. July 21, 2014
Awesome Been putting tires thru the ringer and they have showed no signs of giving up ! Rather it be in the twisties or on rain soaked roads! July 21, 2014
Very normal tire It is a great all around touring tire. It is not a track tire. For my spirited rides on highways in Nevada it works great. I get 4500-5000 miles out of the rear on a CBR1000RR. I only loose traction at low gear top RPM on wet surface and that is expected. It is flatter than a sport bike tire so cornering in not linear. After it wears a bit toward the end of life is even more so. At that time it catches on road irregularities and it tries to throw the bike like on grooved pavement. But it is not enough to dwindle my decision to buy another set. July 19, 2014

A shopper asked: I like the Shinko 009 Raven rear tire, 180-17: My Question is i'm looking for low profile tire, unknown if this tire is low profile? Please e-mail me with answer. Feb 12, 2014

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.
