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 ! 

And on all the GS/GSA's , should we all take them off ?

I dont know why but I get the idea the GS tyre size is tubeliss and the bigger wheels on the KTM is tubed?

Can be wrong also.

your front is not a 21 inch. As I have seen it, only the E07 90/90/21 is a tube tyre. I know a few people running the 21 inch on a tubless setup without shit so far.

I've been running the E07 for three years. Current set has 22,000 klms and now need replacing. Never had a problem, good tyres IMO

No the 110/80-19 tyres are tubeless. ONLY the 90/90-21 Mitas E-07 tyres are TT. If you are ever unsure check the sidewall of your tyres it will tell you if it's TT or TL! Once again only the 90/90-21 Mitas E-07 front tyre it a tube type tyre, the 110/80-19 fronts and rears are tubeless!

Eish...you have to be SO careful what you say on line. We are talking about a 90/90-21 fitted to a KTM 1190 which has tubeless rims. I say that this Mitas tyre is not Tubeless and then suddenly all Mitas tyres are not tubeless. My fault I should be more specific! If you are ever unsure check the side wall for the markings ! TT stands for tube tyre (it will also have "Tube type tyre" on the sidewall!) TL stands for Tubeless tyre and yes you can also fit a tube to a Tubeless tyre  ;).

Unless the tubeless tyre is a radial.....then you're looking for trouble

Thanks to all for clarifying.  I rather ask a stupid quistion than end up with a blow-out.

Ja also got a 90/90 - 21 E09 the other day for my HP2 and noticed it was TT and then swapped it for a E10 TL rather than take the chance.

Edit: Apologies, I only notice the rest of the thread clarified the panic. :)
[qoute]
Please take the E-07 front as it is not Tubeless...not sure who fitted it but you will probably loose pressure with it![/qoute]

Sheesh!? Really?! The okes that fitted my E10 front without a tube!?

On the Mitas website is the following: "All sizes will be available only as tubeless and in category T (speeds of up to 190 km/h)."

I'm not second guessing you, just hoping you can expand on the use of a Inner tube for the E10 when on the front, please?

E10 front is tubeless. I think it was clarified that the E07 90/90/21 is the one that is not tubeless. Talk about herding cats!  ::)

Absolutely love this discussion. Some advise here. Now with the rainy season starting and the e07 has a issue with wet tar what suggestions you guys have?
