Just a point about max weight. This is based on max weight and max speed rating. i.e you need to be over 328 kgs (656kgs on both) per tyre at a sustained speed of 190km/h!

Thanks. ......  :thumleft:

Without hi-jacking your thread, you are lucky to receive such special treatment.    :thumleft:  I am still waiting for the promised replacement for my mitas E07 that cracked severely and eventually lost a chunk on our way back from the XT bash at Koedoeskloof.  I reported the matter on the 25th of August already and still waiting.  Hope to receive it soon, I am beginning to get withdrawal symptoms from not riding the S10.  ???   
please will you PM me your details as I am sure that all outstanding claims have been settled. If yours is still outstanding I need to look into asap! Please note that we mostly deal directly with the reseller an either replace the tyre or credit the account. Please give me your details and I will look into it. Please keep in mind this situation is a little different with GS rentals are technically a reseller so I am able to deal directly with them.

After one PM, two mails and 4 telephone calls you and Danny have my details.   :thumleft: 
[/quote]Hi Bud,

your claim was passed last week and believe the credit is with the dealers and I will call them to finalize.

I am about to fit new tyre to my front on my KLR and even with this hell of a whoo haa going on about the Mita i am still going to fit the EO7 , i like the thread on it . And just reading this thread and seeing how KTMJedi stands behind the product and keep everyone informed gives me more than enough trust in the tyre and IMO this is a isolated incident that has been blown out of porportion by the social media . So tnx for keeping everyone informed KTMJedi

This is my 3rd bike with EO7 on, and never had any problems.  Someone earlier mentioned the tyre is crap on wet tar...  What a load of BS - in fact - dit sit soos snot aan n wolkombers on wet tar.  

I feel 100% comfortable with the tyre and will not change.

The factory engineers have the details and I am just waiting for the tyre for some additional information and details. They have also put a tyre from this batch on stress test to see if there was a batch problem. IMHO this was a simple dud tyre and something that happens every now and then. Even in F1 where tyres are x-rayed and hand built to the highest specs a dud will creep through. I suppose its like baking a cake...you can follow the recipe to the T and you will still get that flop 1 out of 100. Don't get me wrong this doesn't excuse anything and at this stage just my guess.

Not an isolated incident and not blown out of proportion.  I think we have the right to known what is the cause of this and if there might be a problem with the batch.  That is then also precise what KTMJedi is doing and kudus to him for that.  Once we know the outcome we all will be at ease.  Surely you do not want something like this to happen to you while doing 120 + in a corner with a pillion on the back or on a remote trip somewhere in Namibia with help days away.  Our safety is at risk if there is a problem with the tyres.  We just want honest and true answers, and I think we will get it from the suppliers.

I was told that you get the E 07 with two different compounds........One soft for offroad only and the other harder for DS type riding...?

Different colour strips or something.............Is this true Ktm Jedi ?



Any one know if this is true?

Hi Badger

I am on my third E-07 and at 18000kms, it is about to be replaced.

No cracks, no delaminations, I actually feel a bit done in. :patch:

It is very worn though, can I claim?
