What size Shinko 705's for my '14 650A?

Hey all,

Been digging around on the forums and online but can't seem to figure out what size 705's (front and rear) I need to replace the stock tires on my 2014 650A. A dealer is quoting me $240 for the set, including installation, but want to see if I can find a better deal.

Gonna get these on the bike within the next month or so.

Thanks for your help,
Dave

Just use the same size that are already on your bike. I think the stock sizes are 150/70-17 on the rear and 110/80-19 on the front; you'd need the same sizes in a Shinko 705.

A brand new set of Shinko 705's from Rocky Mountain ATV would be about $163.00 for a V-Strom if you bought them yourself.

What size Shinko 705's for my '14 650A?

$240 for a set is a good price! 2 years ago it cost me $195 total with tax for the E705 radial tires and $125 to have them installed and balanced. The previous post is correct on the sizing,
110-80-19 front 180-70-17 rear.

My model #s are

87-4535 Shinko 110/80R19 E705 59HTL Radial

87-4536 Shinko 150/70R17 E705 59HTL Radial


It is possible that they are quoting you lower pricing on bias ply vs radial ply.

I was paying about $150 a set. But the installations prices have gone up from $25 to $50 a tire. That's the result of paying a living wage.
The shop I used to use didn't charge an mount fee and had great prices. But they don't sell Shinko's.
I can get them locally and go to a friends garage and pay back with a lunch and a beer. And figure where we will go camp next~!

Thanks, everyone.

I think I have what I need and will see if I can find a deal and what just installation will cost.

Here's a great deal on the rear; too bad they don't sell the front!

Has anyone ever bought from these people? China? YHGTrade.top...$36.99 for a Shinko 705 seems too good to be true.

Its reasons like this is why I bought my Nomar.

After 3 or 4 tires changes it paid for itself and since then has been saving or making me money ever since.

I have to agree with Perazzi. I go through several tire changes every year; paying a dealer to do it can get expensive, not to mention the inconvenience of it. I started off with dealers. Then I started buying tires on line, taking the wheels off myself, and taking them to a dealer who would change the tires. Even that was a pain; I still would have to drop the wheels off and come back later. Now, I just buy them on line and mount them in my garage. I don't have tire changing stands or anything fancy; just tire irons, rim protectors, a plastic wedge to break the bead, and an ancient 12 volt air compressor to set the bead. I also have a balancing stand. I've even changed the stiff sidewalled Mitas E07s with that setup. I'd guess I have maybe $150.00 in tools for changing tires. For $150.00 I never have to pay anyone again to change them, and I can do it at my convenience.
