shinko E 705

Anyone tried these? I just put my first set on and arrived today from a 1200 mile ride. They perfromed great at high speeds, in corners, rain and dirt. They're cheap I know and I know you shouldn't skimp on moto tires. That being said for the money i'm in.

Never heard of them.


























Just kidding....plenty of tire threads and several about the 705's. I'm running a set now.

Never met a dog I didn't like, a machine I couldn't break, or a woman I couldn't tick off.

Im running a new 705 on the rear. Love it so far and have had no problems. Ran it on a 400 mile day trip with about 60% pavement and 40% forest service gravel roads. Not one problem. Im going to put one on the front at the end of this season.

I have about 4,500 miles on the set on my 1k. No problems, they are good on and off pavement (gravel roads).

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

Recently replaced a 705 on the rear and got 4,000 miles out of it. The tread squares were beginning to peal off. Made me a bit nervous so I replaced the front as well. Probably won't be getting more in the future. Gotta say the Conti Road Attacks I put on are considerably smoother and eliminate 99% of the front wheel "wobble". I'd rather have the peace of mind than a few extra bucks.

This was the old discontinued bias play 705's correct? Not the new radials?

Tires were on the bike when I acquired it. I assume they are, indeed, the bias ply tires. Not sure if you can visually tell the difference between the two.

I just ordered a rear for my 650 and they sent me a 150/70-17 M/C 69Q, is this a bias ply tire, no R in the size on the tire. The dealer asked the supplier was it a radial and they said yes but the tire doesn't say it. Will this be dangerous with the Trailwing radial on front or should I get them to order the right tire.:

And if that's not enough, the tire has a 3010 manufactures date so it's a new tire, I thought only the old ones were bias and the new ones were the radials.

I am considering new tires for the spring and came upon this while searching Shinko 705:
