Shinko Rear Tires for 1100 [170/80/15]
When ordering Shinko 777 tire I came across two others as well. Shinko 230 seems appealing. Below are all three that can fit, anyone who has used other ones?

Cool. I am thinking to go with 230 tour tire. They say it lasts longer and good for long rides...and cheaper than 777. :p

That SR734 tread pattern looks really appealing to me...but mostly because I can see myself getting off on logging roads and the whatnot at least until I can afford to add a GS to the stable... That tread pattern looks like it would work much better on soft-surface roads and in the wet or muddy...

It's probably noisy as heck on the highway, though...

@zag if it lasts longer must be a harder rubber so wonder if give up any performance/handling with it, just a thought.

Oh. That's some nice input guys . Least noise is the priority. So 777 pattern would give least noise?

Hard to say for sure, the 777 and 230 might be about equal noise wise - though I suspect the character of the noise would be different. If I absolutely had to choose I'd say the 230 might be marginally quieter. That aggressive tread on the 734 is almost sure to be a howler, though, relative to the other two.

I think 230 would work ok. Noise of stock pipes would suppress that howling or of minimal. My rides are usually longer so 230 tourer type would give extra milage this year. I average 10k miles per season June to September.

mmmm, dang was thinking with the longer rain/wet cut through the middle would make more noise, but hey been incorrect before. need funding to do testing all tires for sound on same bike same sizes, guess have to be stock muff so get a good sound reading off the tires, come on bike/tire mags give me a job sounds like a good research project! i really am not that costly!

If noise is a factor, run these for a while and then go back to your cruiser tire and it will be very quiet. Dodgy

777 are super quiet tires, i have f/r and im pretty sure I cant hear them...not that I can hear much over the cobras...but the rear did come before the pipes and i will say wet traction, smooth ride, quiet ride, and handling are all in the top range
