The pair of Shinko E-705 tires in my stock are both double arrowed for either front or rear positions. And they are properly arrowed for water, sand, grit, gravel, mud dispersion of the appropriate F/R fitment.
The point of the /\ or chevron should be the LAST thing to touch down on a Front tire, to squeeze the stuff to the sides because the front tire is Always Driven (by the roadway).
The point of the V or chevron should be the FIRST thing to touch down on a Rear tire, to scoot the stuff to the sides while the rear tire is Driving the unit forward.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 83,000+ miles & counting
