Front Shinko 705

We got the new Shinko's on the Wee tonight. The radial ones. Thanks to Rob for all the help. The radials seem to handle very differant than the bias ones. Also a little smoother. they also fall into the corners very nicely. Anyway, I have a Shinko 705 front bias that is about 20% warn, 80% left. Anyone want it? cost you a beer, the most interesting beer offered, gets it.

I saw that. I like the Shinko's. But for that price, I decided to replace both at the same time. They work well for what I do. Slab, mountain twistys, and some light off road. Yesterday we did more than light off road. Some very rocky,steep up hill sections. But thats the adventure. We didn't know how the road had faired with spring run off. It was rough. Not bad for my DRZ400, but hard on the Strom. Put a very nice gash in my skid plate too.
