Default Tires

So I am in need of a new set of tires and am planning on getting Shinkos. I remember reading on here that Pain just got some SE890s and was curious about road feel from him or anyone else that runs them. I was thinking about the 777s but was curious if there are any clearance issues even though they are just a little taller. Thanks

For your CCT?

Front: Dunlop RoadSmart II 160/60 MT rear tire on the front, good for over 30K miles. Yes, over 30K miles. Run it against the arrow, turned 'backwards', air set to 39psi.

Rear: Dunlop 195/55 Winter Sport 3D Runflat car tire on the back and you'll be good for about 25K miles, air set to 37psi.

Nuff Said

All the best,

Mark

Yeah just threw a set of 777 bias on the Vegas,
Vegas has XC front wheel 130 70 18.....
And a Shinko SE 890 JOURNEY on the front of the XC , still tryna wear out the E3 on rear, and then Ill go to a SE890 Journey on the back as well.
Very happy with the 777's my Vegas has used up in the past, got 14,000 Aussie kms out of the last front , so USA riders should be able to at least double that with your smooth roads and laid back style.
Front Shinko Journey feels great!.but dont all new tyres!....long term test coming up..
My tyre man Andrew at Gold Coast Motorcycle
Tyres always gives me great deals on tyres..
so he should I buy so many and send others there😎

I wouldnt run the 890's, the load rating is below what is recommended. I have a 777 on mine now and am looking to change and try something else. Current mile about 8k Still got some miles left in it, but we have a trip planned in Oct and I dont like to start out on a just mounted tire.

I LOVE the SE890 Journeys....They are quiet, smooth and handle just as well as the Cobras did. My XC handles so much better on the radials SE890's than it did on the bias-ply Shinko 777 or the bias Avon Cobra I put on by accident.
Now let's see how they last......for some reason I'm not at all concerned that mileage will be a problem with these tires.

I have run a couple different variances of Shinkos on a couple bikes. For the money I think the mileage is fair. Usually about 8k or so. So far dang it, just figures out I have to change a bit early for our trip to NC. Still miles left on tires, but I dont want to be on a 600+ mile trip on almost done tires.

Nope, I didn't use that kind of tires you are talking about. But you try with MICHELIN. The famous tries brand.

ok @djh3 load ratings SE 890
F63 272kgs 600lbs...XCs GAWR 460lbs
R74 375kgs 827lbs...XCs GAWR 900lbs

XC wet weight 800lbs 363 kgs
I weight 100 kgs with gear so 463kgs
leaves me 184 kgs for pillion and gear
load limit for saddlebags 11.3 x2= 22.6kgs
No pillions over 161kgs is fine by me��

Wet weather confidence over E3s is well worth not hauling as much weight in my book anyway.
