New Meat

Decided to get some new tires for my street, already mounted the front (Shinko 016 Verge 2x) and should get around to the rear (Shinko 777) sometime this week. new sizes are:

front: 120/70-17
rear: 160/80-15

a little beefier especially in the back should be fun.

What size shocks are you using? Are they Progressive? Thanks!! Also please update on how they work. I have been hoping Shinko would make the stock size ,but if this is a better route, I will take it!!

Cheers!!

They are 12.5" Progressive 412 Shocks, and will do an update after I put the rear on and probably another in a few weeks after feeling them out.

Rear mounted, I like how much higher the bike sits at this size of rear tire, no scraping or bottoming out what-so-ever. Handling has changed quite a bit and will take a few rides to get used to but overall I'm impressed!! Will post a follow-up in a few weeks after putting some miles on them.
