Anyone know the weight ratings of these tires. I can't find the info anywhere. I would like to give the shinko ravens a try but I want to make sure they can handle the weight.

I am very happy with the shinkos I put on the KLR 650 and since I don't push the mean streak to it's limits or travel on it I thought I would see how they work on this bike.

I haven't seen the weight ratings, but i have a 005 on the rear of my bike and have been happy with is so far. Also ran the 005 on my Turbo Hayabusas.

I ended up ordering a set of the 009s. 180/55-17 rear and 120/70-17 front.

The weight ratings are 73H rear and 58H front. Stock weight ratings are 72H rear and 62H front.

I will write up a review of the tires when I get some miles on them and will keep track of how many miles I get out of them. $170 delivered for a set of tires is pretty good. Time will tell if it was money well spent.
