Shinko 804 mileage?

How many miles did you get out of the 804 fronts?

When you had them replaced was it due to cupping or thread wear?

How did they behave at the end of life on/off the road?

I've looked at many reviews but don't see this answered, at least in DL 650 context..

ZERO... just put mine on and it's been raining for a week :-( Hope to scrub them in a bit this week. If I get 7-8K they'll last me 2 years at the rate I ride.

Get busy living, or get busy dying...

The rear is done at 6k.
I really can not find any negatives. Plus they really make your bike look cool. I removed those stupid shiny "S" badges. I can't tell you how many people come up to me and say that bike is so cool. What is it?

I would install Mitas E07 if I were you, that front 804 might destroy your front fender due to lack of clearance, this would be for 2nd gen 650's.

The fender lift on my to-do list, but I am leaning towards getting e07 Dakar F/R. Trade off in off-road but better longevity; what is needed for 12k trip. Top of the world and Dalton isn't TAT.

We will probably have to use 705 front for street bike as it looks like the best option in 17" size.

Buddy of mine runs the E07's on his 1200GS, he simply loves them both on and off pavement.

Eo7 is a good tire, just does not have as good traction on or off road. I've had them both. Plus, you can buy 2 shinko's for the price of a E07.
Easy fix on the front fender.

On road I bet the E07 overall outperforms the 804/805, and when talking about "off road" I also bet the E07 is overkill for 95% of Strom owners. The E07 doesn't need the front fender to be modified, another reason why it is great choice IMHO.

It is also longer lasting and quieter on pavement too. My only concerns with E07 there were a reports of front failure and recall with E07 fronts, there is an issue with some tires being out of round (check youtube) and the fact that on new tires due to lower lugs front has the tendency to step out earlier then rear.

So all together I would prefer 804 front, if it can make the trip.
