I'm no expert, but if it is the same speed rating and size I don't think there will be any questions

That's the problem, the size differs. Therefore my question.

Karoo 3 is also R and T speed ratings.... and OE anakees on my bike was V rated so no diffs.

Size change is not and issue.

I would want BMW and the insurance company to make that statement before I risk it.

I have the same concerns as you ...... The E07 is a good 50/50 tyre with durability and I would like to fit them as well.
I have met n guy on the recent Sabie GS Challenge who fitted the 150 E07 ( old GS ) on the new LC  which takes a 170  at the Back .......?? He is happy with it .

Dave T's input was jacked up. They mention the Anakee Wild. Any updates from anyone please. So far I've decided to go Karoo 3.
