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
I liked the tire, and i think the price cannot be beaten! I love the tires, it looks great, feels great. going to have fun riding with this one! July 14, 2014
Great tire for the price! I didn't have a lot of cash to shell out for a tire and decided to go with this one based off of the reviews. I ordered the tire and it was at my door step the VERY NEXT DAY! I am uber satisfied with the purchase so far. Unfortunately for me, after only having the tire installed for less than 2-3 days I picked up a screw. Revzilla informed me that there is no road hazard policy on these tires but STILL offered me a %10 discount on a new one out of goodwill. I am satisfied with the tire and with Revzilla. If you don't want to spend big bucks on a new rear tire but still want the best bang for your buck you should DEFINITELY go with this one. I've also ridden in pretty heavy rain on more than one occasion with this tire installed and the bike still handled like a champ! July 7, 2014
Great bang for the buck Have used the 009 Raven on previous m/c's (GL1800 and ST1300) and now on the FJR - does everything that the big buck tires do. I've never had any unusual grip issues either in the dry or wet. Will use this tire again. June 30, 2014
Awesome! A majority of negative the reviews on shinko tires i saw on the internet were from people who had not tried them or just couldn't believe you could get such a quality tire at a low price. i got these both for 134 shipped for my sv650. I ride about 3 times a week, and have put about 500 miles on these tires. My first impression of these tires were that they felt really weird and awkward when turning in, however you get used to this in about ~30 miles. (I switched from Dunlop q2). I ride these every weekend 45 miles to the twisties, hit them pretty hard (by no means a knee dragger, but i have about 1/10th inch of a chicken strip on the side), then drive 45 miles home. So i put about 150 miles on them in one day occasionally. I have never had them slip on nice pavement, i had the rear slip very slightly on a road with scattered gravel and tar snakes everywhere, while i was leaned over pretty hard. However the slip was so minor, that the tires caught right back up and i was on my way. I would highly advise purchasing these tires for the average rider who commutes but also enjoys hitting the twisties. (I have not tried these in the rain so i cannot say much about that) June 24, 2014
Good tires for the money. Bought a pair of Shinko Ravens for my 07 BMW K1200s for less than the cost of just the rear I put on last year. I have to admit the first ride I thought I made a big mistake, the front tire has a lot quicker turn in then I was use to. The bike "falls" into the corners now but after a few miles I got use to the feel and I was able to confidently get rid of the chicken strips. I only have about five hundred miles on them, most of that two up but they seem to be wearing very good. The BMW is a fairly heavy bike and I ride two up 70% of the time so I only get about 6k out of a rear and 12k out of the front using dual compound tires. If I can get the same mileage out of the Shinko's I will have cut my tire costs in about half! June 16, 2014

Allen C: Third Shinko rear tire, they last less then a year for me, not because of wear but due to metal objects. Got an 4" nail that went from just off center thru the sidewall and nicked the rim edge. Still have around 30% tread left, and I do close to 5 days a week 80mile commuting (mostly freeway).

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (1)
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.
