Shinko 777 Review
well got them on Saturday morn so rode about 30 miles afterwards and now 2 days of riding to work, so far very pleased, grips the road good, ie handles good, quiet, comfortable ride and in the wide whitewall, price installed was just a bit over 300, so while the pocketbook was hurtin this seems a good product to get me back on the road, back tire was showing cord on my inspection after removal.
so thumbs up so far, pior reviews that i found stated all the same just do not expect metz mileage out of them, but for considerable less cost.

RE: Shinko 777 Review
Mine Just came in and I took the wheel down to get it changed. They couldnt get to it today because of the time I brought it in, but I'll be picking it up and installing it to the bike tomorrow. @Keith I'm wondering why you paid so much for yours? Ordered, shipped, mounted for less than 150 here...

Either of you notice an increase in agility when you put the 777 on the rear?

RE: Shinko 777 Review
have them on front and back as back was showing cord, yeah way more agile now, too many years ago when put the metz on to compare though.

RE: Shinko 777 Review
I have a 03 650 classic. I was looking at these tires as I need a rear. I have put over 4k on this year. So now my bike is showing 10k not bad for the Dunlop that she is wearing.

RE: Shinko 777 Review
@cmort still a good product am happy with them, i say go for it. they do have bad reviews on the heavy bikes guess maybe the weight factor, talking the heavier hd cruisers and the kaw 2000 size. read that some of the first runs from the factory were not up to par but that changed in the last year or 2.
