Some of the R & S owners have used Shinko's. IDK what specific sizes or models. Search is a good tool.

Has anyone put white walls on a stock vtx “c” and if yes what brand and size pls
A VTX with WW's looks real good. I used to see a picture in another members signature of his 1300 S with WW tires and it looked really nice.

My next set of tires will probably be Shinko WW, always wanted to try them. It may be awhile though because my commander ll's only have about 5-6k on them.

I looked at the Shinko’s and they only have the 100/90-19 61H. I’m not sure if the first number would make a lot of difference

I’m trying my best not to change the rims but I haven’t found an exact match for the 110/90-19 on WW yet if I do I sure will post them on here.
Thank you

It's about 10mm less in width and 18mm less in diameter, so it lowers the front about 9mm in theory. In real life it's a little different, because the loaded radius of the tire at the bottom is different from these numbers.

I just put on a set of the 777s front and rear. The grip is fantastic. I have a ton of confidence going into the corners. I did notice though that they are a very heavy tire, at least on my R where the size is a bit bigger compared to a C .

I have used the Shinko 777's on my 1300 and the 1800. I stuck with the BW because just what Smurfy said. Looks good... hard to keep clean. I'm lazy :)

I just put a 777 W/W on with the stock rim and I really like it it grips good and looks awesome haven’t had to clean it yet but it will probably be a bit of a pain lol but it’s worth the looks.
