I tried Shinkos once on my '07 1KRR, they literally vibrated and shook my bike all over at 150+. Put on a new set of Michelins and she rode true and clean. Never again. (my $.02)Good Luck tho.

I've used Dunlop, Pirelli, and Michelin.

I almost always use Michelin, now.

That was obvious when you chose it for it's tread pattern. Theres nothing wrong with that and we have all been there at some point. Search the forum on the front end for advice. Itll save you time and money in the long run an it might help you keep your bike rubber side down. It really does no good after you've already made the purchase.

When you are still new and still learning, why you didnt ask before you buy ?
When i got my 08 CBR1000 RR, that was my very first sport bike,i was extremly new to the bikes world.when i brought it home from dealer,my legs shaked from fear.i learned lots and lots of things thanks to this forum,i want to say thank you to all members.
Everything that i didnt know i asked or used the search button.there are many many questions and answers about tires on this forum.
And i think if you even asked before you buy, i bet that many members here would give you gread advices about tires or read and you will find whats best for you.

Aside from Speed Rating, Tread is the only other thing that I think is relevant to the conversation. Tread is what gives you grip if I'm not mistaken, grip is what keeps the rubber side down.....I'm not trying to sound like a jackass but that's just what it boils down to.

I agree that the search button does wonders, but if no one is using the same equipment I plan on using, there words do nothing for me. I'm no stranger to motorsports forums and I know how the "new/dumb guy" gets treated, that's why I pretty much do my own thing and ask for advice after the fact.

I never said you are dumb,neither anybody said that.and we didnt treated you bad,none of the guys here.all i said its better to ask before you buy!

When you are asking advice, nobody makes you to use what all others use.that why this us forum and we talk here.
