The Shinko 700 is a relatively new tire and I haven't heard any reports on it or of anyone that has them for that matter. In Canada the Shinkos seem to be in short supply. Just looking at the picture the 244 looks more aggressive than the 700.

The Kenda 270 may be an option but I don't know how it would do in the mud. The Kenda 760 Trackmaster is very aggressive but won't last long on pavement.
The Kenda 761 that was recommended is more street oriented. It's more 90/10 IMO.

|willmo454||I ran a set of 607's front and rear. The front wore perfect. The back scalloped a little, but I felt confident on road with minimal noise.|

Thanks for all the help, I tried to find some of the recommended tires, with no luck. I´m going to order some from USA next month. In the meantime, I ended up buying Bridgestone Trail wing 41 and 42, (the only 50-50% tires I could find), and when I found them, I did a quick search and found different opinions about them. I´m going to use them for now, and order some in the next month or so.
I just did a 220 mile trip 70% off road, and they performed acceptable.

Shinko 244 vs. Shinko 700 Dual Sport Tires
I am interested in a comparison of Shinko 244 vs. Shinko 700 Dual Sport Tires. Which is more aggressive offroad? Which is better on street.
I am interested in putting on a Kawasaki KLR 650 which will be used 50% on the soft sand Ocala National Forest roads near me and 50% on the street getting to those sand trails.

I used Dunlop 607's and they were fantastic on the road. Dirt was not their friend. I then went to Kenda K270's. Loved the "dirtability" and the street worthiness of the tires with the exception of the rear on the street. It was awful and inspire little to no confidence. I changed the rear tire to a Kenda K761. I love this tire on the street. In dirt it was so so and in mud it was plain aweful!
Tonight, I mounted some Shinko 244's on her. We'll see what those are like on a ride I'm going on this weekend. I'll report my finding.
Oh, and I just mounted some 606's on my 99 KLR. I'm looking forward to trying those out in dirt.
