So when I got my bike, it had some brand new tires on it. The front tire is a "Shinko" F009RR and the rear is a "Shinko" R009R. I haven't really heard much about these tires and I did a little search and couldn't really find any discussions about them.

I'm a little nervous to lean too far on these. Has anyone heard of these tires or used them?

I'm not planning on going to the track anytime soon but just some aggressive street riding. I figured the dealer just threw the cheapest tires on it, I don't think he even balenced the wheels.

If the wheels weren't balanced you would be immediately aware of it, and you would've taken it back there already. As for the quality of the tires.... They're kinda shit, but for the level of stress you'll be putting on them, even with your so called "Aggressive" street riding... They'll suit you just fine.

You mean like on a gravel road? Unless they're knobbies, he's boned either way.

For the dirtbike, I run shinkos exclusively. I can't tell a difference on the trail between then cheaper shinkos and the higher end dunlops. I have never used them for the R6, but I know people who have and they never had any problems with them. I run Michelin Pilot Road 2 mainly because I tossed them on there and they grip like a mofo and seem like they will never wear out.
