    Great replacement
    Installed on my 07 SV650s, I felt the dramatic increase on road feel over the factory dunlop. In the first week of my daily commute 32 mi each way, it rained - the Ravens held true and firm. Since 9/24, I put on about 960 miles already and they are wearing or should I say not much wear at all...Great choice front and rear. And the price here on were the best over about 5 other sites and local!

    Saved money and gave up nothing
    Thought I would give this tire a try. It's great. Could not tell any difference in this and the more expensive Bridgestone Battleax I had been running. Actually got a few more miles out of this one. Also made a dozen passes at the local drag strip and had no problems. Unless you just like spending money you should try this tire.

    Shinko rear tyre dissapointing performance

    In the last few days I replaced my Dunlop Sportmax tyres on my 2004 GSXR 1000 with Shinko tires that I bought from As always from JakeWilson, the tires were well packed with no apparent damage.

    The tires supplied were:

    190/50ZR-17 (73W) Shinko 009 Raven Rear Motorcycle Tire - 2004 Suzuki GSXR1000 (Rear)

    120/70ZR-17 (58W) Shinko 009 Raven Front Motorcycle Tire - 2004 Suzuki GSXR1000 (Front)

    After fitting the tires the wheels were balanced and inflated to approximately 40PSI.

    During the first test ride it was abundantly clear that turn in was very much slower, and that the bike felt unsteady even at moderate lean angles. The problem is more evident at slow speeds (

    shinko raven perfect tire for riding
    I installed this tire on my 95 cbr1000f and have loved every minute of it. Tire handles great and grips great as well. It handles the canyon really well and even the mountain passes as well. I will for sure be buying this tire from now on and maybe even try out some of the other shinko tires as well.

    Shinko 009
    I bought a set these tires from RM ATV and was a little worried because of the price, but I had read many good thing about them. So I took a chance and went with it. I am very glad I did! These tires have fantastic grip and corner very well. They almost feel like they could ride the bike through the turn alone. They lean right over and hold a great line in the turns. Hard to say how long they will last but I hope to get at least 10K outta mine. Dont be shyed away by price these are a great bang for your buck!

    Shinko Raven 009.
    I have to say I tried these from reviews, I am glad I did.

    Rear I get 6k no funky tire were like dual compound's simple and true tire sticks to the road handles wet well and never had a flat or cut in the rubber, you will notice the harder feel but after 500 miles it will feel like home.

    I take these on forestry roads with my 2010 Triumph 1050 Tiger (not on the ATV*MC list) and not the tire for off road 180x55.

    Tried all the Dual compound and they are great but I don't race I do long distance touring and camp where I stop, tires are not cheap if you don't mount your own.

    Love these tires just try them and you decide.

    Don't let the looks fool you!
    I have purchased 6 sets of the 009 Raven's. I run them on my 08' Kawasaki Concours. I ride hard, and they last. I get 6,000 miles out of them consistently. I ride every day, rain or shine, and they stick like glue, in the wet or dry! They aren't worth a hoot in the mud or snow though, so I wouldn't recommend them for that!

    Seriously, if you are looking for steal in a motorcycle tire, this is it. I have bought two sets of these tires for what I was paying for the Michelin tires. I think these are every bit as good of tire!

    Great Rear Tire 10,000 miles
    I measured my tread with a tire depth guage at every oil change and finally I wore it down to the wear bar indicators, probably could have gone another 1000 miles. Just over 10K out of this $99 tire !!! Awsome grip for my riding style. I ride 5 days a week,50 miles per day 70mph highway riding. Weekends around town and longer trips 2 up.

    Use Dyna Beads also. The only people who dont like the beads are the ones that have not tried them yet. BUY THIS TIRE it's good!!!

    Awesome tires for the price
    Bought both front and rear Shinko 009 Ravens for my Honda CBR1000F (sport-touring version of the CBR) about a week ago, and performance is excellent. Its cold weather here in Illinois still, chicken-strip capitol of the world (no hills, flat, straight roads) and i have already almost ridden to the edge of the tires with no slipping at all. Riders Domain has the best price, and for cheap sport-touring tires these are extremely good. Very responsive, sensitive, and almost no roll resistance whatsoever. I didn't realize how much i was fighting with my last set of tires on the turns. Now sharp turns are effortless. The rubber does seem pretty soft for sport-touring, but people on forums are claiming to get 8k+ miles out of these. Time will tell, but for now i am grinning through every turn.

    Is this tire only for sport bikes andvif not to you think it would be good and last long enough for a Yamaha Road Star Warrior?

    BEST ANSWER: Choosing a tire is based on the manufacture sizing for your machine and also your brand preference. What is the stock size that you have on your machine?
