Just wanted to let people know that this tires are really good, just replaced my rear tire after 8k miles all street and the front still really good, best part, is one of the cheapest tires you can get.

No arguments here
140 has been on the back for a fair few klm and recently fitted a universal fitment (front or rear) 120 on Thruxton rims.
Stick well enough for me.

New pair of these going on my bike later this month. They have done really well for me on my other bikes. Been through 2-3 sets already.

I've run a bunch of 705s. I can't get more than 6,000m out of a rear, but cheap as heck and run fine. My only complaint is they suck on spike strips. 😉

Alrightie then, I'll give them another try! Got an order in with Fortnine.ca....actually $10 less than last time I ordered nearly 3 yrs ago.
Anybody know what tube sizing I need for the standard T100 tire sizes (110/80-19 & 130/80-17)? I really like the Counteract bead-balanced tubes I'm using in my Commando...want to try them on the Bonne....

Welp...bike now has its second set of Shinko 705 Trail Masters on. Did them myself but had such a bear of a time, esp with the rear, I don't think I will do that again. Put in the CounterBalance bead-balanced tubes, just like I've had on my Commando for a year now, and went out for a shake down run. Very smooth feel at high speed, so the beads are doing their thing (incidentally, they also sell a bead kit to be used on any tire type, with or without tubes). Seems the "Wuggah, Wuggah, Wuggah" noise I've been living with ever since the Bridgestone Trail Wings were put on (3 seasons ago...see the above reason of spike stripe inadequacy of the Shinkos). So it seems that noise was most like due to tread pattern as suggested by some smart bloke on these forums 3 yrs ago....didn't need to do all that troubleshoot I guess! The front Trail Wing was undersized as 90/100-19....all the repair shop had on hand at the time of the spike strip incident. These did alright off road but made the bike feel twitchy in corners, turned in too easily. The 110/80-19 shinko front now provide quite a stable turn in.

Too bad you bought new tires that day, Tornado. Could have just pulled out the spikes then got a new tube and put a bit of cardboard or duct tape on the inside of the tire where the bite marks are to reinforce it a bit. I tried installing my own tubes and tires once and nicked two tubes before the tire was even half on so gave up and took my wheels to a local shop. My new 705s will be getting mounted on Monday and Tuesday :-) .
