Motorcycle Manaic Store sells both Shinko and Full Bore tires. The Full bore M-40 150/70R/17 looks like it has smaller pads/knobs on the tire than the Shinko 705 150/70R/17. I did get some information on the tire from the sales rep. He said the tire is manufactured in South Korea and the tread depth on the M-41 90/90-21is 8/32" and 9/32" on the M-40 150/70R-17. That's all I could fine out. I need a new front tire on my F800. The Shinko 705 is just about gone, so I ordered one of the Full Bore M-41 90/90-21------We will see what happens? If it's the same as the Shinko 705's, well thats ok, it's been a good tire.I have a fairly new Bridgestone TW152 on the rear which I like on road and off road (no real mud) it's ok. So when the TW152 goes away I will try the Full Bore M-40 and see how that works.
Spring is just around the corner and it's been a real mild winter here in northern California (so far) compared to last year. I am ready to go out and do some riding.
