I just received a rear 705 from dualsportoutlet.com today (ordered Sunday). Not sure if they had any front 705s in stock. -Tim

Thanks. They are out of fronts. Nobody seems to have front tires. Late June at the earliest. I need both, so guess I'll get something else.

Just order a front and a rear from Chaparral. They had the front in stock and said the rear will be in next week.

Thanks for the help locating these tires. I ordered the front from Chaparal, and the rear from Dualsport outlet.com. Had to pay shipping both times, but better than waiting for who knows how long. Worth the extra $18 when threads are showing.

This time of year I'm too busy to check in daily so sorry for delayed posts. It is my understanding that any Shinko 705's available now are the old bias ply compound manufactured in 2009. The new radial 705's have not shipped yet and are not expected state side before June. The radial will have 150/70R17 printed on the side, the bias would not have an R in the sizing code.

I'll know where I'm supposed to be when I get there.

Saw a letter posted on ADVrider from shinko. They have no plans for a radial, at the moment. Will be interesting to see if the ones that arrive in June will be Radials. I think all the defective ones were replaced? Hopefully. Anyway, I couldn't wait until late June. I can see the air in what I'm runnin now. Anyway to tell if the ones I recieve are the defective ones? Production codes etc?
