Every manufacturing process for just about everything imaginable pops a lemon out every so often. I like Shenko tires. I use the 230 Tour Masters on mine and I've never had an issue. Shenko is a Japanese owned company that manufactures in South Korea.

I've heard a few sportbike people complain about them and perhaps that's not the best usage for them but for the 750 Vulcan they're fine.

More than likely, yours is that once-in-a-blue-moon lemon.
