I bought the bike (an 05 DL650)with the Shinko's already on it back on November so no come-back to the dealer. They seemed to be quite new from the look of them though. I've done about 4500km on them...

Keeping it alive...

Couldn't resist really. I had a 2003 DRZ400E that was made road legal. I bought it because it was supposed to be the best most reliable value for money dual-purpose with a good dirt pedigree. Never...

I had the same problem - got it in but was tight and would bind and stick so I just got out a fine file and took a little off the plate where it was binding - did the trick fine. Thing is it's not...
