Just a quick post on installing Shinko 244 tires on hawk 250 dual sport bike. This was a fairly quick change out for my hawk 250. I did the front and rear tire in about 30 mins. This is my 2nd time changing a tube/tire on a motorcycle and I think 30 minutes isn’t so bad and it saved me probably $100 paying the dealership to do it for me. So the best investment I made was buying the bead-master pro irons and the rim protector. But after a while I got tired of the rim protector and didn’t use it lol.
The sizes for the Shinko 244 tires that I got are,
Front – Tire Size:3.00-21 51L (eBay Links Under this text, Amazon Links under the images)
I did another post that explains more in details how I figured out the size tires to get for my hawk250, click here to read the post on finding the hawk 250 tire sizing guide..

I hope it gives you the courage to try and change your own tires. When I first got my hawk I got a flat tire and they charged me I think $50 to replace it with a new tube. Now I can save a lot of money doing these on my own. Plus when you are in the woods, there is no dealership to help you with changing your flat tubes =).
So its a really good idea to learn how to change your tires and tubes on the hawk 250 dual sport.
Stock hawk 250 tires next to the new Shinko 244 tires.
I got about 3400 miles out of the stock hawk 250 tires and that is 80% of street riding I did with the hawk 250.
I’m really liking how the Shinko 244 tires look on the hawk 250 but I still didn’t get a chance to fully test it on the street and off-roading. Once I do some more testing then I will do another post on here and update you guys.
