What do the inmates think of the Shinko 700's? Thinking about getting a 4.60-17 for the rear and a 3.0-21 for the front.

I would go for the 705's but not a fan of the look of the tire.

I just put new kenda K270's on.
5.10-17 and 3.25-21 they fit and look great.
I had them on my other KLR's also.

I'm a Fan.... I run the 5.10-17 on mine. Get about 5-6K out of a rear.

I am seeing that the 5.10 is a tubeless tire... Would it still work fine with the factory wheels?

Yes, but run a tube of course....

Maybe not the right place to continue my troubleshooting, but...

Continued from a couple pages back, having an electrical cut-out issue that I thought could be the sidestand switch.

Okay. I've checked a couple of things just to see whats what. The bike starts without the clutch pulled in, and I can put it in gear and move with the kickstand down, so looks like both are disabled. Everything looked stock around the kickstand switch and there are no wires cut at that point so it must have been disabled elsewhere. I only have the sidecovers and seat and a few other covers off but have cleaned any connections I've found so far and all looks good. Also the petcock vacuum line is firmly attached.

Although the sidestand switch is the only one that should cut the engine while riding, you can easily short all the safety switches at once. To do that you short together the two wires in the photo marked with green hash marks. These are in the plug that you pull out of the far left connection, the one nearest the clutch handle and choke.

Photo doesn't show much context; large photo is looking back from standing beside front wheel. Inset photo is looking slightly forward from the left-side mirror. The photo is a bit washed out, but those wires are blue w/red and black w/yellow.

This short is on wires that go to the clutch switch, but they are partially in parallel with the wires from the CDI to the sidestand switch. The short tells the both the CDI unit and the starter switch that the clutch is always disengaged.
^^^^^I'll check and see if maybe this has been done and is coming apart or something???

Next step I suppose is to remove the fairing and see what I find with the wiring and then the gas tank and do the same... Any other tips?

You can run a tubeless tire on a tube rim but you can not run a tube tire on a tubeless rim

I've been running 705s for ~8k miles. Great all around tire. Cheap. Good mileage. Great traction on the street. Decent in the dirt. Junk in mud.

I also run them on my Tenere, for the same reasons.

Check your plug wire. I traced a miss/hesitation under load to a loose plug wire. It was barely finger tight at both the coil and plug cap....I was amazed there was any spark at all. The bike never cut completely out like yours did, but easy to check and one more variable to eliminate.

Just FYI, I had a similar issue with my bike.
Even though the vacuum line was firmly attached with no holes or cracks, it turned out I had a vacuum issue.
My petcock was leaking air in.

The 705's are great tires, I am a fan. Used them on a Strom, a Tiger XC and now just bought a set for the KLR. Looks are subjective I guess.

A friend put that on his and the width looks way too skinny for the KLR. Get the 5.10. I would get the 244 over the 700. Tread is more aggressive, yet a GREAT tire!

Alright cool. I think I'll get the 700's and wear them out then try out the 244's. Shouldn't be too long until I burn out the new set
