Shinko 009 Raven Rear Tires 4.5 5 48 48
A great sport tourer tire My XB12XT eats rear tires... 4500 miles was the max from anything. That would usually mean beyond the wear bars and into the cords! Although it gives up a little grip, most noticeably in the rain, when compared to the Angel ST's... it's providing at least 7500 miles with some left before it'll hit the wear bars. At this price, I swap front and rear for less than the price of a single Pirelli. Highly recommend these. Enough confidence in these to consistently drag my toes from the Buell's 12" high pegs. Ride like your brains are in your helmet in the rain and you'll never find fault. These tires make my 12 day 6500 mile cross country trips possible. November 2, 2015
Shinko 009 Raven rear tire the best! Guy friend swears by this tire on his bike. He said traction is great, smooth ride with this tire October 7, 2015
Like to Love I've used this tire more as a sport touring tire and would rate it as excellent in most categories, especially wear( I'm pleased with anything over 5k on the rear). Wet grip is good/okay, and real traction is more pavement dependent, they don't grip polished pavement and pavement stripes as well as a Roadsmart. but wear is similar and price is better. I use them on my Monster and Ulysses and am real happy with them. September 21, 2015
Good tire at a good price Nothing but good things to say about this tire after about two months of riding with it. Good grip overall in regular riding conditions. Also got stuck out in the rain a couple of times and the tire performed well. Tire was perfectly balanced, too. No need for those ugly balancing weights on the rim. Also, tread pattern looks awesome. March 1, 2015
pretty good tire I had this tire on the back of my 05' honda vfr800. I bought it mainly because of the price. This tire still had more than half of the tread left after 6k miles when I replaced it. This tire was not a good match for the tire on the front which is a continental trail attack. The center had worn flat with the edges at 90% tread. It is a good dependable tire recommended for touring. January 18, 2015
Good Economy Tire Doesn't have the greatest grip, but it definitely gets the job done. November 3, 2014
So far so good! I purchased these in July. I was running stock Bridgestones on my 2011 Yamaha Fz8. These Ravens have been great. I ride mostly highway and back roads. I've been up to 135 mph on these. I've been caught in a few storms. I've also hit some decent curves. I have pu about 300 miles on em and they look brand new. They stick well and performed fine in the rain. I love the look! All in all they are great tires. October 24, 2014
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...

Dennis B: Same as above, have same tires on Busa, time to replace, great deal on front and rear combo. Nov 6, 2015
Robert O: Good price and great reviews Oct 22, 2015
James M: The only tire that's been able to survive on the back of the Buell XB12XT for more than 4,500 miles. I get about 7.5k for less than half the cost of the Angels. Grip is great in the wet and about 90% of the Pirellis in the dry... perfect for my needs. Oct 14, 2015
Arlie L: I have found these tires to work very well for my riding, and I need another set Oct 11, 2015
Damian G: This is the same tire there i have right now, and i feel confident with it May 16, 2015
Vilis N: I ride an old (1997) VFR750. Switching from Bridgestone s20 tires which were excellent all around and gave great grip even in cold, wet conditions. s20 wore evenly and I got 5k miles out of them. I want to try a harder compound for lower price and longevity and to see if I care about having less grip. I don't corner hard enough to wear my tires out to the edge anyhow.
I'll write a review after I've used them for a while.

art l: great price for a good tire. I have put many miles on this brand and model of tire. Jan 28, 2015
Shawn S: After catching a nail I needed a cheap, dependable tire that could perform as my daily commuter. This tire meets those criteria and then some. I find that I am more comfortable leaning my bike into turns and trusting my tires to do their job.

All around a good purchase for a good price.
Nov 12, 2014
Robert G: I was going on a cross country trip and needed a tire that could hold up to many miles on the highway with out breaking the bank. I felt that even if I was to wear out the tire it was a good value. 6K later the tire looks great and is holding up as good as any other tire I have used. Oct 29, 2014
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).

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). Really good high mileage tire. May 19, 2014

thomas h: I picked this tire because I go through back tires like its cool (1500-2000m) and this one was advertised as being a higher mileage tire also it was one of the least expensive ones.

Jonathan W: Wade,
In general the 009 tire has a very flat profile giving it a great contact patch down the middle (good for highway longevity). I put this shinko on some of my supermotos to make the rear loose, hard compound with little contact at lean. The 009 is great for commuting on cheep rubber. If you want a good sport tire go with the Dunlop Q3, you wont be disappointed ( has aggressive side profile yielding a large contact patch during high lean angles, and its cheep for the performance it gives. Hope this helps.

Edward E: it's not terrible. give it 100 miles or so to break in and explore it's limits carefully. i found that it overheats easily during enthusiastic riding, but had no complaints otherwise. no chicken strips here.

excuse my grammar, please, answered from a mobile device.

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.
