I am going to replace my front tire soon and found nothing on the forum with the Shinko Tire. The 009 Raven is load rated for 520 lbs and 168 mph rated which exceeds the 880. Any thoughts?

I just ordered two Shintos for my Kawasaki Concours14. I've heard a lot of good things about them. Some guys I really respect use them. BUT, I'm not so sure they are rated high enough for the LT. You'd best be double-sure ... or that LT will wreak havoc on that tire.

Used to use them on my z silver wing. Worked just fine but a much lighter bike

I've used them on my 70's Japanese bikes with no issues, don't think I would want to be a beta tester for a bike as heavy as the LT just to save a few bucks...

If you want to lean really hard into curves I would recommend one of these: :D
