I have seen a half dozen or so pictures on forums of 705s that have delaminated and lost sizable chunks of tread and sidewall rubber. Not a new problem for sure, but it has been a few years since I have seen a report. I am on my fourth set of Shinko Ravens on various bikes and I ran two sets of 705s on my Super Tenere, all without issue. I doubt I will try the 705s again.
I think you should first talk to the dealer that sold you the tires. I would expect them to replace the tires with another brand if you wish, absorb any shipping costs and in recognition of the hassle you have undergone, absorb any additional cost for different, more expensive tires. I would also ensure that Shinko gets the tires for examination. This will likely happen when the dealer asks for compensation from Shinko.
Glad it did not turnout worse for you.
