    I think both those are too tall. The front is +1.57" and the rear +0.71" As you know, fitting larger diameter tires make the speedo read slow.

    Edit: On their website, they list a 120/70-17 for the front. P/N 87-4529
    For the rear you can use the 150/70-17 (+0.71" tall) or the 170/60-17 that is +0.45" tall and a little wider.
    Personally, I'd go with the 170/60.

    I chose 150/70-17 for the rear Shinko 705, based on the dimensions I wanted. I did not want a wider tire, but taller made sense for dual sport use. Where I shop, americanmototire, it’s also the less expensive of the two choices.

    I used the stock size for the front 705.

    Either size seems to work well:

    I went with the 170 because it is closer to the diameter but a little wider. I replaced the rear only Michelin due to a flat. I have about 1500 miles since I replaced it and the only issues I notice are a little less grip at full lean and a slight 'thruming' noise mostly noticeable at low speeds due to the tread pattern. I don't get too aggressive with my bikes and the noise let's me know that it's not flat So I can live with it. My hope for this tire is that it has good longevity and so far it is looking pretty good.

    I have a pair of them on mine. I chose the 120/70-17 for the front and a 140/80-17 for the rear and i run both of them tubeless. So far i am liking them a lot and may very well replace each of them when the time comes with another Shinko Trail Master 705! :{)

    Those are a bit taller and narrower than the originals but they appear to fit just fine.

    Of course I just measured the tread on mine and it's 10/32 (inch). By the time my tires are worn I'll be down below the original diameter, possibly the diameter of worn, original tires.

    So the Shinko 705 140/80-17 tube type tire works OK mounted tubeless? No air leaks? Would it break loose from the rim easier if the pressure gets low? I wasn’t sure how that would work.

    They both said "TubeLess" when i bought them. When "I" personally mounted them on the wheels, i checked the beads and both of them appeared to be the same style/shape, just like the bead on a car tire. Both tires popped on the bead lock on the factory wheel and sealed perfectly. I have only run them down to 30psi for gravel, so i really don't know if there will be an issue in the future. I have about 2000 miles on the rear one already and it has not lost even 1psi... I have the habit of checking them often as i believe IMHO low tire pressure is a contributing factor in motorcycle handling issues/accidents. :{)
