Shinko 805. What does the collective know?



Can't find much data. Bought 2 from motorcyclecloseouts.com at a good price. (I always thrash the first one, just because.)

Anybody else tried them yet? I'll report.

Probably black cheese but gotta try. ;)

Profile looks outstanding to me. We shall see.

To my untrained eye it looks like it would be fine on the straights but without staggered blocks I would be careful leaning over in the rough until I got a feel for it.

SOG - Your user title says it all.

The rest of us need to take bets, and using round numbers I'll bet you'll torch it within 1,267.6 miles.

This is slowoldguy, Texas Roads, back end of summer, so my bet is sub-1000. I hope I am wrong but my bet is 805.

Miles.

I think he should be able to do it in that!

if its the same rubber used in the Shinko 700 and 705's (I use both) , I would bet on 3000 miles.

Hope they get the tread compound right out of the gate. Just finishing up a pair of the new formulation Kenda Big Blocks now on my Super Tenere. I got 4,500 miles out of them. Rear was actually in better shape than the front, which is severely cupped. Keep us posted how they wear. I loved the traction of the Big Block, but it's just a bit too short of a life span.

Yeah. I really need to try that new formulation Big Block. Still the dirt grip benchmark for me.

Does cross ply mean that it is not a radial?

I found it for $100, did you find it any cheaper than that?

Might try one in that range.

Shinko 805, my experience with 705

I've got Shinko Trail Master E705 on my R 1200 GSA currently. They've got 6000 mi on them the front still looks almost new and the rear has about a 1000 miles left on them. They wear well and ride well on the highway and dirt roads. The only thing is they are really heavy to steer at slow speeds to the point where I felt my balance was screwed up... until a BMW mechanic took it for a test ride and though the tires were under inflated... they weren't.

I realize that the tires are different to the E805's you're asking about. Felt it is important enough to mention since they're from the same stable.

how about now?

Where are we at with the 805 slowoldguy? Have you had time to shoe it yet? I'm really curious what a real world trial will tell us. Thus far, you have the only thread on this new tire/s (804/805). I can't find another human anywhere on the interwebs talking about this tire!
