Mitas  07 plus: Just done 5500 km on my AT- needs replacement. Did 40% gravel- some very knarly routes like south entry into Baviaans via Jeep track, etc. There are cracks and tears which seem to be slightly worse than a Karoo 3, but tyre gave no problems. Will most like buy same tyre again for my trip to Lesotho next week end

On 12200KM now with the old pattern E07 on my XRV 750 Africa Twin. Tyre has been ridden hard with no fucks given at times. Got a new old pattern E07 waiting in the garage to be spooled on.
The old pattern E07 ticks my boxes. Current tyre is faarked but holding air and would prob do another 3K before the canvas shows through.

Looks like I had that one in a million that didn't make the cut.  So far all people seem to be very happy with the E07 just like I have been with previous E07 tyres.  Still waiting to see if they will replace or tell me it was user error :lol8:

Very difficult to tell without seeing the tyre,  but consider that if you ride a area with sharp rocks or Shale rock you will get those kinds of cuts (sharp rock vs Rubber  ;) ). Also the E-07 plus is a 4 ply tyre and textile plys cannot crack so if a cut extends all the way into the carcase then you more than likely got a puncture.

Honne,

Hier is my ervaring met die nuwe Mitas E07 Big Block.  Voor ek vertel, hierdie is my 2de tyre wat ek elke km 'opskryf' op excel, selfs die split tussen teer en grond.  Eerstens moet ek bieg, statistiek lieg nie, ons probeer rerig baie grond paadjies ry oor naweke hier om GP, goed as ons nou 'n trip ver weg doen dan is die grond persentasie meer, maar die werklikheid is dat mens maar baie teer ook doen om by die grond uit te kom.

Ek het hierdie tyre mooi ingeloop nogal soos party glo, eerste 300km in korter stadiger trippies, wiel laat afkoel, volgende dag weer so 50km gery en so aan tot en met so 300km.

Daarna spaar ek nie juis die tyre nie, ry ook net oor >170 kmh of so as karry verbyvat, nooit vir lang tye nie, en banddruk is altyd 2.5.

Ek het nou 3451km op die tyre, waarvan 2716 teer is, en 735 op grond (skandelik ja).

Maar 2 naweke terug 'n trippie hier om Loskop, net voor ek terug is in Pta voel ek die fiets begin sweeg, agterwiel pap.  En dit is toe 2 gate naby aan mekaar, sien pics.  Dit is die eerste keer wat dit met my gebeur, ooit.  Nou lees ek hier van die klein skeurtjies ens, en hierdie tyre het dit ook.  Ek weet nie of hierdie tyre by 9000km soos die ou gewone Mitas E07 sou uitkom nie.  Punt is, ek het die punctures probeer regmaak, maar die een in blou is net te groot, hy bly lek, so ek lyk my moet hierdie tyre weggooi.  Ek wonder nou skielik oor hierdie nuwe Big Block??  Is hul baie vatbaar vir punctures, en daar is baie gemengde gevoelens oor hierdie tyre.  Sal maar weer een probeer dink ek.

If you wanna run with the big dogs, don't pee like a puppy!

User error or bad luck.  Like I said my new E07 still looks great after 3000 km .

You guys are definitely not running the new tyres in as should be done, first day, just park the bike, then only to the café for fags never more than 60km/h and not further than say 2 kms, then park for another week to let it cool down properly, then don't ride it for another week to avoid it cracking, don;'t even push the bike around, this is very bad for a tyre. After the first month of following these instructions, you can slowly ease into using your bike, but don't even think of going anywhere off road, cracks appear very quickly if you are not very careful.

I am surprised at the guys running their tyres for extended distance with worm repairs in...!

Those are designed and intended as temporary emergency repairs until you can get the tyre off for a permanent mushroom plug repair guys.

On my 1190R I had 7 of those plugs in one tyre at one stage. If I kept taking it in for the proper plugs I wouldnt have had any time left to ride it.

In all seriousness though I had them come out of a tyre at speed once, since then I have decent plugs fitted if I used a worm.

That tyre looks very fuuuuuuuuukeed compared to my E07 . I never had the luxury of doing that extra 10500km.  My tyre still had lots of tread . We all seem to agree that they are great tyres or I would not have them on two bikes in my garage .

This running tires in story doesn’t hold water. I buy the tire. Ride the bike. I don’t have time to go through a week long sequence..
If it cracks it’s product fault.

What happens if you’re  mid tour and have to replace rubber? Do you take off your luggage and spend a couple of day’s running your tire in before continuing your tour?
