Shinko Tour Master 230's

Post by heholdem » Wed Jun 26, 2013 8:49 am

I recently put on a set of Shinko Tour Master 230's and added Dyna Beads to them, I have about 400 miles on them and absolutely love them. They are a huge improvement over the Battlax BT45's that were on the bike. The ride is more stable, the cornering has a much better feel, and going over grooved pavement I hardly feel the grooves. The only test left for me is the wear factor. The Battlaxes wore out in less than 4000 miles and I am expecting to get atleast twice that out of the Shinko's but only time will tell, speaking of which I think I'll go add some more miles now.

I have a set on the Suzuki GS650 ..
After 200 miles I do like them..
They handle well and ride nice...but on a smaller bike ...
Longevity is yet to be seen...
