Shinko Tires

After my recent purchase of a Shinko tire for the wheel swap, I must say I'm quite pleased with it. I considered other brands, but inevitably went with this one simply based on price. So far, I have about 100 miles on it, and it still looks brand new. It handles perfectly, and again, the price can't be beat. Many of the other brands extended upwards of 100+ in price, while I only paid half that on Ebay for the Shinko. As you've probably guessed, I find most of my deals for the VStar on Ebay. I will need to replace the rear wheel soon, and will definitely match up a Shinko for the rear. However, I will try and keep you informed on the quality of the tire, as I know tires are vital for those of us that enjoy two wheeled therapy. The overall verdict thus far is two thumbs up for the Shinko.

Thanks. For the headlight post, it was the one from May 27,2009. I didn't give that post a title, it just has the date. So, I don't think I can directly link you to it. Sorry, I know it's time consuming scrolling back through all the post. I will give you a few details here though. It was purchased from Demoncycle on Ebay for around 75.00 + shipping. It started out as a flat black, but after running it like that for a year or so I decided to paint it gloss black. There is a high and low, one bulb for each. Let me know if you have any more questions, and I'll do what I can to try and answer them.
