Shinko on the rear and a Meztler 880 on the front. Just installed the rear Shinko and will be replacing the Metzler with a Shinko when its due. I get all my tires from JakeWilson.com, most always have them in 2-3 days. I order dyna beads for balancing and install them myself.

The shinko 777 90/90-21 should fit on the front right? If so i saved 70$ and am getting both shinkos for 155$!!!

I believe it will, but not positive. The 90/90-21 will be slightly bigger. If your fender is not a snug fit around your current tire, at least a 1/4" clearance all around, you should have no problem.

The 90/90 will fit. Chaparrel Motorsports has great prices. Shinko 777s are soft, grip well but won't last as long. Met 888 are the new ones that have better quality control. The 880s give mixed results.

I just got the Shinko 777 (130/90-16 front & 150/80-16 rear), tubes, and rim protectors the other day from rockymountainatvmc (same company as Jake Wilson) the other day for right at $200 shipped. I'm used to buying Metz or Commander IIs but from what I've read the value of the Shinko is very good. I also put Ride-on in all of my bike tires but never had to put them in a tube before so we'll see how it works.

I installed a 130/90/16 Shinko 777HD WWW on my Voyager with 46131 miles on the bike. It now has 58667 and tire still has 2/32 tread depth measured on the wear bar, 3/32' at deeper part of tread. Thats 12536 miles so far and enough tread to nearly match the best I got from my Commander II on the front, 19k on the 1st one and only 14.5k on the 2nd.. I'm happy with the tread wear and performance of them.
