This running tires in story doesnít hold water. I buy the tire. Ride the bike. I donít have time to go through a week long sequence..
If it cracks itís product fault.

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

I will go with taking it easy for a few km , and that is it , to date the only tyre failure I have had apart from punctures has been a delaminated front tyre , and that was a racing slick , ironically we had been warned by the manufacturer to check production dates on supplied tyres that could fail , I didn't check so my fault .

Agree - so long as you do not go naaai it straight off, especially a knobbly or similar it should not crack or throw blocks. Most complaints are actually rider abuse and must be extremely frustrating for suppliers as you do not know what pressure the tire has been run at, road condition or the wrist pronation!

Ok Firstly running a tyre in is not a case of walking on eggs with the tyre its just saying don't ride it like you stole it for the first say 100 kms. Just take it...that's all. With regards to the tyre in question, the small cuts etc could simply be sharp rocks but these are superficial and no risk the structural integrity or performance of the tyre. The problem is the puncture as it seems one of the "sharp rocks" cut the tyre. The standard E-07 is a tough 4 ply tyre but consider the E-07 Dakar for extra puncture resistance as this has thicker carcase.

Thanks for an informed clarification. I heard stories of the Daker being extremely difficult to change in the field. I booked a E07+ standard for Saturday- going to Lesotho on Sunday- mostly tar though with the exception of Sani. What do you recommend? Ido some knarly stuff like south entrance into Baviaans, but not every 2nd weekend! What is the oncost for  Dakar?

I had the standard tyres on my VW 4 motion transporter and never had a puncture. I then decided to fitted heavy duty AT tyres and within a month I had a puncture. The moral of the story is you can never account for bad luck and you can fit the standard version that is in itself a tough tyre and never have a problem. Or you can fit the Dakar on the simple fact it is a thicker and stronger tyre BUT this doesn't eliminate a puncture just less likely  ;)

Ok so the guy's from mitas  had a good look at my E07 and it looks like I had bad luck and got cut from some sharp object.  They were very friendly and helpful.  Like I said I do like the brand and have  mitas rear tyres on both my bikes in my garage.  Thanks to the guys from Mitas for the time spent to investigate and make sure it wasn't a bad batch and keeping us safe .

I run E-07s on the off-road wheels of my 1200GS
I commute 12km to work daily so there and back for two weeks gives a great run-in period.
When I ride longer tar trip, I inflate to 300kpa on the rear and 270 in the front.
I have got better mileage on the E-07 than on TKC's which I found far too soft.
(I wore out a new set in 3500kms of mostly tar)
I usually end up replacing tyres due to time expiration instead of tread wear.

What time period will you have on a tyre and do you work on the date on the tyre

I check on the tyres for expiry.
Tyres must be replaced after 5 years.
 or your insurance has a valid reason NOT to pay out.

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.

Just an observation, seems the issues are when running tubeless rims

Who says a tyre must be run in?

Its not on that paper wrapped around the tyres in big red letters and neither do the tyre shop tell you the manufacturer requires it.

So in other words, no one says so.

Tire pressure was never an issue in the 80's. When you had 2 Bar you were good to go. My old style E-07's were generally good around 200 KPa. Vary up and down as you must. Low as 130 KPa on a XR650L and 200+ KPa on the heavier AT 750. Best mileage 12.3 K on the AT and 8K on the XR. Good tyres.

My E07+ het nou al amper 9500km op my Vstrom650 geen probleme van krake en sal seker 12000 km of meer uit band kry, sal weer 'n agterband opsit.
