Shinko E804 & E805 Installed.

It was a battle, but they are on. So far I only have about 50 miles of on road riding on them. They are very smooth and quite on road. I will update with off road results later.

I can now report about how they handle torrential down pores and 50 MPH winds.

They felt very sure footed in the rain and wind. I'm really liking these tires so far.

They look really great on the bike!! I am really thinking of them as my next choice. Would love to get an update on how they perform.
Tough I am still very confused about the entire tube-thing. The E804 100/90-19 are listed as TT so no problem there. But the E805 130/80-17 are listed as TL. So I'm really curious how you set them up. Just put a tube in them? (with all the concerns about internal friction and so on...) Or did you do the conversion-seal the beads-trick?

I just put my tube in the rear. We'll see how it holds up.

I run the same combo on my 11 ADVersys 650. I went the DIY tubeless route and they have been holding up very well for the last 3K miles.
