I am quite keen to fit the Pirelli Scorpion Rally onto my AT.  However the rear only comes in a 140... vs the 150 that is oem..  Has anyone fitted these 140 and if so, is there an issue or not with fitting a smaller rear tyre?

No problems fitting Pirelli Scorpion Rally's on my AT. They are awesome offroad, but noisy on tar.
I have done 3,000km on them so far and I really like them!
I'm waiting for the Michelin Anakee Wild to launch in the correct sizes, then I will fit those.

Any feedback on the OEM tyres
1 have had 2 x punctures in 1000km both on the front from hitting small rocks and pinching the tube

I requested mine to have a knobblie tyre from the showroom and it came with Pirrelli Rally Scorpions, the tyres are very noisy but work very well both on and off the tar..the rear lasted to about 4700 km and at 6500km now the fron still looks good for at least another 3/4000 kms.
I was lucky to get 2 x rear Dunlop Rally Raid D908 rears and fitted that, loved these tyres on my SE and so far so good :thumleft:

I'm in the same boat, ordering my AT on Monday and need offroad tyres for sure. :ricky: :ricky: I'm planning on doing 70% gravel and 30% tar which tyres would be best?

No debate, best combo I've had: TKC 80 front, Mitas E09 rear

Sounds like a real good option. Will the ride on tar still be acceptable?

Done K60, TKC and E09...
Now have Anakee wild front and Motoz Adv rear. Realy realy impressed. Rode it like a plastic on single tracks.

If its Mileage you want E09 front E07 back. The E07 still fairly good on the gravel and double the Mileage of E09.

I am not a big fan of Mitas front rear yes. Also look at Capra X looks the same as TKC 80 but have Kevlar in little heavier but stronger on my previous 1190R did over 220 on clock and it was stable handle just as good as TKC and tyre doesnt change shape or character after 2000km. Have to say this new Motoz T adv/Gps Think its going to work well. Another very good tire Pir MT 90 V gives km it last works well for a lot off stuff not so good in heavy sand or mud if you want something that looks good, last and work thats a good combo.

I went for the E09's soon after getting the AT. They have just under 9,000km now and the rear is seriously worm a flat area. I do not enjoy the 'weave' that developed when the rear started wearing a flat surface. I am thinking of the Scorpion next to see how they do.

Title: Re: Africa Twin CRF1000L Tyres
Post by: Bwana on August 23, 2017, 11:37:02 am
I have tried the scorpions very good on the dirt but there is an irritating loud tyre whine on the tar.
Title: Re: Africa Twin CRF1000L Tyres
Post by: DavidMorrisXp on August 23, 2017, 12:02:53 pm
Tyres also have speed and weight ratings, I would be careful to get the right ratings for your bike.

I haven't checked the AT's yet but my 800 needed 54V tyres which the TKC80 is and that's what I fitted because of the ratings.

 I thought if there is an accident attributed to tyre failure and you don't have the right rated tyres, the insurance company may not settle your claim
Title: Re: Africa Twin CRF1000L Tyres
Post by: Bwana on August 23, 2017, 02:51:25 pm
Max Speed rating on the Scorpions is 160kmh if I remember right.

Maybe thats why they feel funny at 200?

Herewith a link to assist

http://www.avon-tyres.co.uk/motorcycle/load-index-and-speed-rating-symbols

Therefore I assume the AT would also fall into the 54V category

Just Checked ..Scorpion A/T are V rated so no issues. Tyres are faster than my bike

changed to an EO9 on the back , and a T63 front..... neither lasted long (1000km on back and 3000kms on front) although great off the road.
after that I fitted the heidenau's back and front. been told I would get loads a mileage outta them . currently 3000kms in and they still look very good with minimum wear. but geez does that back tyre slide all over the show.... seriously kark grip. (the traction control kicks in the moment I leave the house hahaha)

The Mitas EO-7 is a much beter bet, especially the new thread pattern coming onto the market in December

Fitted E07 Mitas and took my Bike for her first longish run today (440km) mostly tar, which was disappointing, but at least I went out...

Not a fund on tyres, so open to suggestion......what i can say is I did find them somewhat noisy.....


Otherwise the Bike is so awesome that it makes up for everything else......Even Zuma wasn't on my mind today

If you want some 70/30 off road tyres check out Tractionators, SGS Motorsports sell them.

I will have some on my AT for the next trip.

Yesterday i removed the MT90's from my AT. Rear was almost smooth, front had plenty life lift to go. was after about 8k kms. Probably could have fitted another rear and been on my way, but decided i wanted something a bit more aggressive. So I fitted a TKC80 front and a E10 rear.

Wow, these are grippy tyres. Interesting how a new set of tyres changes the handling. Shall be testing her out this weekend.

I know this is a helluva old thread but I didn't want to start a new one on the same topic.

I'm taking delivery of a 2017 AT DCT as soon as lockdown is lifted.  The dealer has agreed to replace the standard OEM tyres with a new set and is recommending Metzeler Karoo 3 tyres front and back.  I have no experience of these tyres but what I've read speaks of noisy on tar and feeling as if the tyre is running in a rut on dirt. 

What are your opinions?  Mileage? 

Vs the new tread Mitas E07?

Ek het van hulle op my LC gehad en glo nog altyb by hulle.  Hulle sit soos k@k in 'n wol kombers op teerpad nat of droof en ook op grond pad en modder.  Jy kan maar bietjie le in die draaie.  Perform baie goed in my opinie.

Nadeel van die bande is die agter tyre gaan jou enige iets tussen 2500 tot 5500 km gee.  Dit hang alles af hoe jy gaan ry.  Ek het gewoontlik so by die 4000km's gekry.
Die voorste band hou jou baie lank, MAAR na 'n paar duisend km's, begin hy jou bietjie vibrasies te gee op die voorwiel.

As jy nie gaan betaal vir dit nie, go for it....  Ek het altyd die karoo 3 voor op gesit, en dan die karoo street agter. 

Sterkte met jou besluit.

Myne het my 'n "geraas" of 'n "zing" geluid gegee so tussen 115 en 120 km/h en sodra jy oor dit is, is hy weer stil.  Hardloop ook gemaklik tot op 200km/h.  Kan ongelukkig nie se hoe doen hulle op 'n vinniger spoed as 200 nie.

Weer ekke met bande vrae  :biggrin:

Handelaar het 'n Michelin Anakee Wild 3 voorband vir my ingesluit.  Hy het TKC70, of Michelin Adventure of Mitas E07 nuwe loopvlakpatroon voorgestel vir agter.  Geen voorraad tans van enige Motoz of Capra bande tans nie.  Ek moet maar vat wat tans in voorraad is as ek more die fiets gaan haal.

Wat sÍ julle? Ek is nogal geneig om die Mitas e07 te vat.

Dorsland na my eerste E07+ Dakar agterband op die 1190 bly dit my go-to general purpose band.  Gee goeie kombinasie van grip in verskillende omstandigehede. Ek commute en trip met hulle.  Die karkas is baie sterk en help dus om pap wiele te voorkom.
Het laaste ene weggegoo op 9500km na my Suidwes trip in Februarie.
Voor werk die Mitas E10 Dakar baie lekker. Kry so tussen 8 na 10 kkm op hulle.

As ek meer knobbly soek as E07, gebruik ek baie graag Mitas E10 agter ook.

Dankie @Rexc-w, ek het toe gister 'n Mitas E07+ agter gekry en Anakee Wild voor.  Gaan hulle Maandag laat opsit.  Daai E07+ lyk asof hy die werk kan doen.  :thumleft:
