cheng Shin C828s
I am in the middle of installing a set of Cheng Shin C828 tires on my 88 KLR. They are replacing a IRC GP-1 on th rear and an Avon Gripster on the front. I read quite a bit on various forms about tires and decided to try the Cheng shins. the price was cheep, $28 for the front and $33 for the rear, with a new tube for the front and a set of rim strips the shipping was free from Motorcycelsuperstore.
I was not real happy with the mileage from the IRC, just a little over 2000 of about 80% pavement and 20% dirt. The Gripster was on the bike when I got it and has lasted through two rear tires, but while I am on pavement 80% of the time it is to get to a dirt road so I thought the Cheng Shins would work well.
I'll see how they go and report back.
