    probly havent heard of shinko as they are a racing tyre. being relatively soft compound they wear a bit quicker than most like in summer but in winter you can corner like a GP bike with grip to spare.

    i suggest you try it.

    I had a look the importer for shinko tyres he is in Melbourne seems they bought the moulds from yokohama and started making them in 1998 so i would not have heard of them since i wasn't riding then.

    I spoke to a local dealer who said they are not really a race tyre just reasonable for the money, his advice stick to the well known brands as they are only a little bit more in price

    I am curious about them so i will try a shinko on the rear to see how one goes.

    The other question is are they actually a cheng shin tyre renamed, i fitted a cheng shin tyre when the first came out on to the rear of my Z1R i destroyed it in 1800 kays it was atrocious with no grip at all.
    I did use a set of Shinko 005's back in 07 and while they were OK there wasn't a big enough reason to go with them again IMO
    a) The difference in price was only ~$85 cheaper for the set,
    b) The Shinko did ~13k f/6.5k rear vs ~14k front/10k rear with the Michelin PP front/PR2 rear combo so the reduced mileage made it no cheaper to go with the Shinko's
    c) While the rear grip was OK it wasn't as good as the PR2 when ridden hard leant over even more so when cold as I used to be able to spin them up quite easily leaving work
    d) Wet grip while passable wasn't great compared to the Michelins
    e) The front was much more rounded on the Shinko front (much like the PR2 fronts) so felt very slow to change direction compared to the PP
    f) As it got quite worn I also noticed a slight shimmy under deceleration with no hands on the bars

    Funnily enough when I replaced it looked similar on the sides to yours with the feathering but not the bald strip

    I tried them on the recommendation of a few guys from over east on the OzBB forum who had used them and quite liked them although they mostly used the 003's which were a softer more sports oriented tyre as opposed to the 005's which were more sports touring oriented
    They were also about $150+ cheaper a set over east so much better value compared to the Michelins and I think with different roads lasted longer

    I have no issues with the tyres per se they just aren't as good value as the Michelins on a big heavy powerful bike ridden hard
    On a smaller less powerful bike then I'm sure they'd be fine especially for more normal commuting type riding


    As far as the Cheng Shin's go I'd not use them, I did try them many years ago on my CB750F and they were diabolical compared to the Battleax's I had around the same time, ill handling and like slicks in the wet They may have improved but who knows

    I am finding the power rs to be a very good tyre at least while the weather is still warm it really inspires confidence in fast corners gravel/sand and nuts don't worry it went through plenty of fast corner's like that yesterday gravel won't bring you down it's what you do when you come across it that can.

    I have never done a rolling stoppie except with a push bike. The road bikes i rode were too heavy, the first rolling stoppie i witnessed was in july 1985 a brand new gsxr750 in flinders street melbourne did one and the road was wet as it was raining he lifted the back about two foot.

    Not so much of an issue now although it still happens sometimes
