I had Mitas E07's fitted to my new bike.
Will see how it goes but the way KTMjedi handled this gave me a lot of confidence.

I've got it on 2.3bar front and 2.9bar rear.

I run EO7's on both my 800GS and 1200GS. Fantastic ! (even in the RAIN!!) However, these tyres are NOT suitable for speeds of 140 PLUS. 

Sub 140km/hr and 2.8Bar Front, 2.5 Bar (Both bikes) and I get average 14 000km on the rear and about 25 000k on the front.

This bad delamination looks to me like sub-sonic speed, load, and under-inflation is the culprit !

For the first 300km I run both tyres at 3bar.

I've put a E07 front on my 1190 Friday.

Will see if it can take teh punch.

I did not ask about speed rating, I also dont wanna know  :deal:
If the tyre goes at 270kph I hope it will be not too painfull for me  :lol8:

Please take the E-07 front as it is not Tubeless...not sure who fitted it but you will probably loose pressure with it!

En dan wat maak ek met die tyre wat sover 10km gery het???   >:D


Ek worry nie oor presure verloor nie. Wat is die ander gevaar?

Yes sorry take it off! The E-10 is tubeless not the E-07. I understand what you are saying but as Mitas I need to tell you its the wrong tyre! Danger....if you do have a flat and an accident as a result. You run the risk of a cleaver assessor noticing this and denying the claim  :-\. Ultimately this is your call !

why is the E07 not tubeless? I am also using it.
Is the E10 not the more offroad version, whats the difference or mechanics behind this?

Would also like to know.
Recently had one fitted by PistonPete after enquiry with a few shops, none of whom said it is not suitable for a tubeless application.
I am now very concerned :eek7:
And slightly irritated :xxbah:

Fok dit, gaan myne ry en klaar.

Even die OEM tyre druk jy met jou duime vd bead af, so why worry.

Kak design van KTM, hulle rims is tos.

Of tube puncture kry of tyre puncture kry, same thing. Pap is pap  :pot:

"Pap" and unnecessary blow-out in the middle of nowhere, is a very different story, I know. Manic if you have to put a tube in it, rather safe than very sorry.

I offer you R100 for your E-07, towards your new E-10, of course  >:D

2.3 bar is too low for on road pressure. I am not saying that this was the sole cause but please make sure you run higher pressure to limit heat build up in the tyres. Once again I van assure you that you are very safe on Mitas! 

This is a first I have seen or heard.  I run E07s and my last one lasted 30,000kms.  It had many cracks but gave me good mileage.

I think this one was just one bad apple in the whole lot.

And you hare happy to ride with a tire with cracks?
