Default Shinko SE890 Journey Touring Radial

I have a set of Shinkos 705's on my dual sport and they are pretty good. A popular tire with dual sport riders that ride 80/20 (road/dirt).

Does anyone have experience with Shinko's Touring tires?

They have the same H speed rating as the Dunlop E3's but the rear tire has a lower load index of 77 ~ max load 908lbs, compared to the E3's load index of 80 ~ max load 992lbs.
The Shinko front tire has a higher load index of 72 ~ max load 783lbs compared to the E3 front tires load index of 63 ~ max load 600.

Good prices on these tires too.

they say good for gold wing. Maybe go to a gold wing forum and see what they say. Most wing riders are high mileage guys so they might have a good life span

I just put on a Shinko rear to see how it preforms. So far I can't complain. It seem to grip well and it handled last weekends two-up camping trip load fine. I only have about 1000 miles so far but at almost half price it's a good deal if I can get close to the same 10,000 miles out of it.
I like the E3's been running them for over 50,000 miles on my VTX and XC. Have to wait and see on these.

Let me know how you like it and how it holds up for you.

The E3's on my new to me 2011 Cross Country are cupped, the previous owner had 20 psi in them so they are destroyed at 7400 miles. I'm seeing online there are others with E3's that are having cupping issues. I'm thinking about the Shinkos, or possibly the Dunlops that come on the HD Street Glide. The Street Glide rear tire (D407) is a 65 aspect ratio, I don't think that will be a problem though. Dunlop also has the 2nd generation American Elite which is also 65 aspect ratio. The Elite is supposed to be a high mileage touring compound.

Default My two cents ...

Kind of late to this thread, but thought I could add a bit.
Like the OP, I have experience with the 705s on my GS . have not used the touring tire, but the brand in general is pretty consistent across models. Well made tires, but a bit heavy, difficult to balance, and lower mileage life compared to major brands. They also require a bit more air to prevent cupping and heat related shredding. Not sure it would happen to the tours, but many who run 705s at lower pressure have had sudden delamination with long rides on hot slab. Easily prevented with proper inflation, in my experience. The newer tires seem to be far better than those from prior years.

Given the price difference, and with some attention, I felt the Shinko was a good choice. I will try the tours when the time comes.

YMMV

I run a Shinko on the rear of my XC. My bike has cams and underdrive pulley so I am sure I am harder or rear tires than most. I get around 9k , That is with a lot of burnouts and racing my friends all the time. I buy them from ebay $119 and free shipping. Hope this helps.

A little over 2months into riding on the 890 rear tire and I can't complain. We did a weekend camping trip before winter set in and the tire seemed to handle the extra weight without any problems. Two-up full saddlebags and trunk with the Victory top bag. The tent was strapped under the trunk and both saddle bags had a small duffle strapped to the top. I've towed a trailer camping before but this was an experiment to see if we could get it all on the bike without the trailer. Tire and bike did great, I can't say enough about how much room is in the XC for travel.
Winter has come and although we ride even in the 20's this year there has been a lot of ice and snow. I have still managed to put a little over 1000 miles the Shinko and so far no regrets. I'll be installing a Shinko front soon as my front E3 has started to cup badly. In 5 sets of E3's this is the 2nd one to do this. I'll post more as the ice recedes and the weather warms.

Any update on the Shinkos?
Looking to put one on the rear soon, as my more pricey Bridgestone is almost worn out in just one year of use and maybe 7000 miles.
