Default SHINKO 777 tyres (tires)

Anyone used/using them?
what Ive heard Shinko bought all Yokohamas tooling and are now producing decent tyres for reasonable money....I googled and landed on a HD forum and they were raving about them.,
Anyone here had experience with Shinko's 777 tyres?

I used their white walls on my highball. Never had an issue. I didn't ride as hard as you do, but when I traded in my highball for my XC, the shinko tires(tyres) had 7800 miles/ 12,552 kms on them and still looked great to me. Handled better than the stock dunlop, that's for sure.

I read where this happened on the dyno. Do you want to put your life on a cheap tire

When I bought my 2013 Judge in July 2017, it had a new 777 on the rear and a new Route 66 tire on front. I thought that I would replace these tires right away since I have always used Metzler 888s and now Michelin Commander 2s on my other bike which is a VTX, but I have been impressed with both tires. They handle good, and still look good after 8-9 months so I do not plan to replace them until I need to. I got catch in a rain storm a few days ago about 50 miles from home and was impressed with the way they handed the wet weather. They seem like good tires to me.

I installed the 777's on a Suzuki Intruder/S83 and really liked them. They balanced just fine and bike handled like new. I find it strange that people think the most popular motorcycle tire manufacture is going to kill them. Who knows what "really" happened on that dyno.

Ran two sets of Shinkos on my Vstrom 1000. No complaints other than I wear them out between 7 - 8,000 miles..

I will be putting them on the KingPin this year. Im not putting as many miles on it since I got the FJR so the cost is a big factor. I have been running Shinko on my vintage Z1900's and they handle well

Well thats good mileage for me anyway as DownUnder we get less mileage than in the Northern Hemisphere..
I get 8000kms out of a rear Night Dragon and probably double that since Ive gone to the fatter XC front wheel / ND tyre combo.
Thats kms , miles would be 5K
No burnouts .
Quite strange really your dynos show greater power yet your tyres last much longer, and it cant be just cos its spelled differently...
Anyway good to get an honest opinion as opposed to fear driven propaganda and brainwashing .
Thanks, and keep those answers and opinions coming...
