Comment: Have a 02 honds shadow saber with 26k miles. front and rear were worn past tread indicators and had trouble holding the road on occasion. After much debate, followed a friends advise and purchased a matching set of 404's. My initial brak-in was in the dark returning from having the tires mounted. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Sand, cracks in hte road, tar snakes... nothing made a difference in the handling. Steered true and mantained it's grip on the road. Day two , the break-in was completed with a 150 mile trip to Laconia for Bike Week fun, along with a passanger. Again, tires performed flawlessly. Day 3 was caught in 20 miles of pouring and soaking rain. Speed moderated, but again not one traction problem. Already worth the investment. Mileage.... we'll see as time goes on.
Dunlop D404R Tire Review
Comment: I own a 2007 Yamaha V-Star 650. I live in Arizona, and these tires always give 10-12 thousand miles. In the desert heat, and with the dry conditions, this amount of mileage has always been appreciated. I have 50K on the bike.
